“Kitties Being Kitties” Note Cards

Sometimes the simplicity of a single color line or tone on a beautiful paper stock tells the story more expressively than a full-color, scenic rendering.

The expressions, coat patterns and close-cropped scenes of cats just being the individuals they are inspired me to create these little cameos. Of all the cats I’ve lived with over the years, I’ve only briefly fostered a black and white cat, so even long ago these spotted faces were fun to discover!

I did these drawings years ago in response to a request to design some notecards that could be used for professional correspondence by animal professionals.

In those days, before color printing technology became easily affordable, line art printed in one color was the way to go for an inexpensive, versatile note card, and I had always admired cards that were printed on natural paper with a mild texture that resembled watercolor paper.

I Like Your Spots

That project never finalized, but I had the line drawings just waiting for something, so I decided to print them for myself.

Three are pen and ink, one is done in pencil on a textured drawing paper called coquille board which has a surface textured with raised fine-speckled grain although the surface is pure white.
