Cats don't willingly wear sweaters - pencil sketch
Here is my submission to this weeks Illustration Friday. The word was sweater, and I couldn't wait to draw one (I like all the texture of the knit, thought it would be fun).  I couldn't think of a subject until I remembered a friend of mine who likes to dress up his cat. (you know who you are...) My cat, being a "real" cat, would never put up with such nonsense and a serious price would be payed trying to put the sweater on...like say, a limb. In fact, I may be punished just for drawing him in one.

The expression really is great! And I completely sympathize with all that stuff about your cat. My cat is a complete misanthrope :)

Lol! I adore this illustration. My cat would put a contract out on my life is I put a sweater on him. Oscar says, "I have my humans, well trained!" :)

Cousin Leroy approves of the drawing but says Hawkeye needs to come over to learn proper feline-fashion etiquette.
