As the time flies by and Christmas gets closer, I have been brazenly spending some of my drawing time on this rather than the annual Christmas card. However, that project is moving along too. No peeking! I’ll share it on Christmas Eve. 😉
In the meantime, I think my portrait of Oliver is finished. I enjoyed trying to capture his likeness very much. He’s been my friend for almost eleven years, and every day is a little brighter because he’s here with me. Maybe I’m becoming a crazy cat lady, but I firmly believe that not all friends have to be human.
– 5×7 inch Ampersand Scratchboard
– Tools used are a #11 X-Acto Knife, and a blunter scratchboard tool for the thick whiskers. I also used a Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen for some corrections.

I hope you like this. Thank you for following along! I hope you’ll join me in my next work-in-progress. 🙂
