Sometimes I wonder what role, if any, I’ve played in other people’s memories? Perhaps if I had considered this sooner, I would have behaved a bit better… or… not.

  1. Excellent color pencil work! I love the colors and the textures. And the angle made me laugh!

  2. ojni Says:

    Oh…you are 2 good friends! It’s adorable! πŸ™‚

  3. tom barrett Says:

    I can’t tell if this is you or the cat talking, and if it is sarcasm or not… you know… since you have the cats rear facing us! πŸ˜›

    Oh well, great illustration anyway. Nice job with the color pencils!

  4. sketched out Says:

    Thanks guys! Thank you very much. Haven’t taken this particular kitty character out for a spin in a while.

    Tom, sorry if I threw you this time. Went a bit less literal than usual. Like to keep you guessing, hee heee!

  5. Vickie Says:

    Cute drawing. Unusual angle πŸ™‚

  6. erin Says:

    wow! wonderful texture, just amazing. great paw pads. (I often wonder how many strangers’ videos and photos I end up in, forever part of their vacation memories.)

  7. Linda Says:

    Great image–love the texture of the color pencil and the perspective. Cats are wonderful friends.

  8. Beautiful pencil work Linda!
    I love the er…. ummm…perspective on that cat too! Lol! Another fine memory in the making!

    This is glorious! What an idea.

  12. Faruffa Says:

    WOW It’s magic!!!
    I love this perspective :o)

  13. wedgienet Says:

    your blurb reminds me of the premise of The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom. when the main character dies, he backtracks on his life and sees how he has affected the lives of other people around him. good book, and great (made for tv) movie! πŸ™‚

    hmm, i think i’ve found my inspiration for this week’s challenge on IF πŸ˜›

    Anyway, that’s a really great illo from you, and i am so totally digging the poofy socks! hehe great attention to detail, especially on that cat’s… err, behind =)) fantastic drawing πŸ™‚

    I’m sure they both have sweet memories for each other! Charming illustration, Linda!
    Btw, Spooky, I agree you’re a cute kitty! ^.^

  15. kim Says:

  16. Gigi Moore Says:

    Very beautiful illustration.

    gigi :O)

  17. Great illustration. Love your style!

  18. Kelly Says:

    Wow, this is great! Love the coloring you did and that you only drew a part of the characters. Very cool.

  19. aaronpocock Says:

    Fantastic. I love it.
    Trad or digital?

  20. shin Says:

    whoa! i love the way you color!

    nice job! πŸ˜€

  21. Mary Says:

    Love the sketch! If it’s the cat talking, I KNOW it could have behaved better. And a sweet leg rub and tail wrap probably doesn’t excuse what it did that it shouldn’t πŸ™‚ (I won’t even consider your behavior, since I don’t know you πŸ™‚

  22. dot Says:

    love the kittie toes! that’s a really interesting illo..

  23. Eric Barclay Says:

    Oh this is funny! Thanks for the giggle- wonderful illustration.

  24. Angela Says:

    I love how the kitty tail wrapped around her leg hints of a bit of naughtiness. πŸ˜›

    I love the sweet coloring job

  25. froggie Says:

    this is a george bailey moment, sketchie….i’ll bet you pervade lotsa memories and noggins and prolly all good!

    (except maybe that poor kid in 6th grade, you know…joey lazy eyes? you never wanted to play dodgeball with him because he beaned you too hard (as he couldn’t quite see you across the blacktop, on account of his eyes) with that ball…so you ignored him, and that made him pine all the longer…oh poor joey lazy eyes…tsk, tsk, sketchie!

    (this pretend memory is brought to you by “lunesta…for illustrators who never sleep but love butterflies.”)

  26. froggie Says:

    and duh…this is a wonnnnderful illio! the fuzziness makes me smile, her shoes, his tail…perfect! πŸ™‚

  27. Mark Cavell Says:

    What a beautiful illustration. I love the sentiment and whimsical feel. Great work.

    Thanks for your visit and comment.

  28. artseafartsea Says:

    Great work as usual. Really love this one.

  29. Rose Says:

    I would just like to say that I love all of your work. I’ve been glancing at this site for awhile now, and have never stopped being amazed.

    You’re a great artist!!

    I do have one question for you, if you don’t mind:
    My school is producing a play called ‘Red Herring’, and it reminded me of this picture that I believe you drew. Can my school use it on our posters (of couse, we will credit you as the source)?
