I don't consider myself an "artist." I've never been wonderfully good at drawing and have a hard time translating an image I see in my head to paper.
Still, when I rescued Little Girl, my first Himalayan (see right sidebar), she inspired me to suddenly start drawing all kinds of kitty cartoons. I still don't consider myself an "artist," but I did enjoy making these cartoons.
Little Girl seemed to know when I was trying to draw her -- I used to sit on the couch with my knees tucked up under my chin when I drew. During this time, Little Girl would always come an plunk herself down between my feet.
Here is the first cartoon I ever drew in a series of Himalayan cartoons. The whole "Made in Heaven by angels" theme was truly heartfelt, as every time I looked at Little Girl I was in awe in her. I'd wanted a Himalayan forever and here she was -- in all her sweet, friendly, "you can touch me anywhere, even my belly, and I just purr purr purr!" glory!
Two errors on this cartoon: Yes, I spelled "marshmallow"' wrong and also Little Girl was a blue-cream point, not a tortie-point.
She had a little orange on her face:
which I thought meant tortie.
After she died, Anna and Zu's breeder Suzette helped me correctly identify her coloring by looking at photos.
I still say Himalayans are made by angels!
They are just the sweetest, softest, (fattest!) kitties!
