buttoned cat in vest and bowtie

Pero el gato quiere ser solo gato y todo es gato desde bigote a cola
Pablo Neruda
But all a cat wants to be is a cat and nothing but cat from head to tail. 
Pablo Neruda

This week on scribble picnic, the theme is buttoned which has inspired this dapper cat in a buttoned vest and bowtie. I've drawn this with sumi ink and De Atramentis document inks. It's a greeting card that I'll be sending to my sister. Above and below are some of my favorite cat quotes.

And how to you know you're mad?

To begin with, said the cat, a dog's not mad. You grant that?

I suppose so, said Alice.

Well then, the cat went on, you see a dog growls when it's angry, and wags it's tail when it's pleased.

Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore, I'm mad.
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Wishing everyone a creative week.

  1. Wow he looks so dapper in his buttoned vest! Nice quotes too!

  2. This is one stylish cat! He's great.

  3. That's a pretty sophisticated cat. All those buttons he managed too! Great quotes.

  4. Great picture and I love those colours of ink.

  5. That's a really debonair cat. Love it's slick style. Well done. What an interesting take on buttons. thank you, Juana! It reminds me of a Hopper or Picasso or something. I can totally see this in a gallery somewhere.

  6. Quite the striking pose for that cat! All dressed up... wondering if he has somewhere to go?

  7. But of course, he would be well attired! Great post Juana :)

  8. How VERY charming is this, Juana! You could make storybook of this cat-guy character! Our Luna might have a crush on him... ;) A Scribble Picnic--great idea! Happy scribbling... ((HUGS))

  9. dapper, yes, quite the correct word for this cat gentleman. good take on the theme.

    have a lovely day.

  10. Wow this is SUPER fun, Juana. I would have not expected this from you...as it's a bit different but it's SO good and so cute! LOVE his vest. :)

  11. That cat certainly is very dapper in his attire....nice work, Juana. :)

  12. What a fabulous cat - and I love how you used different colors to outline each component of his dandy attire!
    Great job for this week's theme - I really love it.
