Hello to you! It’s Friday night, 7:56 pm as I write to you. I decided to flex my rusty cartooning muscles this evening and try to capture something so endearing Link and Spot do almost every time I go to sit down at this computer…..they beg for treats! It never fails. They will be nowhere in sight or sleeping and I will go to sit down at the computer and there they are! They will both start talking and pawing at my legs until I shamble over to the kitchen cupboard and get them a piece of mystery meat *cough TREAT! Who is the master in our house….not me lol!!!
Anyhew. I tried to scan this so you could see it better but our scanner is too small and so I took a picture. I started drawing cartoons like this after our cocker spaniel Sammy died on 27 April 2011 as a way to cope with my nearly soul-crushing grief. For anyone who has loved and lost a pet, you know how much the loss part hurts! I have realized recently that may be revisiting this art form would make me happier in these heavy times and in the process may be bring a smile to someone else’s face too.
(These are pictures of the perp’s lool – the first two are what they look like when they beg and it’s nearly impossible to resist them!)
So please forgive the “roughness” of this, I need to get back into practice! I’ll probably go back to drawing these on 8 1/2 x 11 sheets so they can be scanned and more legible.
