Ideas for a thing. Very quick sketch: Holden Caulfield.

He looks too cool at the moment, and too much like he's wearing sunglasses.

More Fish

The Price of Fish: 183 Pale Blue; oil on canvas, 50cm x 60cm.

On The Other Hand

I finished this yesterday, and disliked it a lot.  Re-drew Mitchum's face in a different pose today, and it's better, although for a while he looked like he was listening sincerely under a slogan saying "We're real lawyers."

It's... blaah, I dunno. It's done, and it's better than it was yesterday. Still looks too much like someone who looks like Robert Mitchum. Good left eye, though. I like that at least.

You want me to tell you the little story of right hand left hand?

It is, of course, Night of the Hunter.

The Freaks Said, 'Man, Those Cats Can Really Swing.'

Today I set myself the task of drawing twenty-five cats. Then I realised five rows of five squares would not be a rectangular image. Here they are, then: twenty cats.

20 Cats
Twenty cats, bigger.
