4 bouquins et 26 chats

Even when I'm not in the mood to do much, I still like to draw books, it seems...
On the left, a thriller. Didn't like it much, it was violent and I didn't care much for the characters. Not bad, either, it was okay for an afternoon with the kids on the beach. On the right, an essay about neo-paganism, what it is, the various groups and tendancies. Interesting.


These were great! On the left, French fabulous author Tonino Benacquista, with a fun story about a Newark ex-maffia family hidden in a small french village, and raising hell there. And on the right, Finland fabulous author Aarto Paasilinna, with a fun story about Suedish midwives and Finnish lumberjacks stranded on a not so desert island.


And twenty six cats. Seventy four to go and I'll be able to draw a cat properly, I hope. (read somewhere that if you draw something a hundred times you can begin to really get it right - meaning, you understand it better.)

les couvertures de livres sont tres belles, et en plus cela me donne de bons titres a chercher.
Les chats sont super, surtout en mosaique,
j'ai commencé un carnet de dessin il y a quelques mois, que des chats, cela me donne envie de le reprendre.

I've always thought cats are not easy. Mine have improved though. Very interesting books. I wonder if these authors are published in English. I will have to check it out.

Love the cat grid. I can believe that is true. I seem to draw the same things over and over again. I like that feeling when you finally feel that you really understnad your subject. I think I'd like to ive this cat grid a go.

You make very cute work.
