Sketch of a cat eating out of the bowl

Cat eating. Quick sketch done with a fine liner ink pen. April 2014

This is a preparatory sketch for the next panel of my illustrated cat story. The scene will show how the cats are fed by their human friends, thus showing the tight connection between them and the people in the village.

It is not done with a pencils, so there’s no way to erase wrong lines. It is one of my art goals to get better in drawing. I’ve loads of scrap paper, so when I’ve got the feeling that the drawing has gone wrong I just throw it into the trash can and begin anew.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.

    I was just having a conversation with a former student about drawing directly with a pen, and how it takes a certain amount of courage — kind of like when you first take of on a bicycle without anyone holding on to the back to keep you up. You wobble a bit at first, and then — you’re flying!

    Lovely drawing — I look forward to seeing more about this project (as you know, cats are one of my favourite things!) and hopefully reading the story!

      Thank you very much, Karen! Actually following your blog and reading your posts about cartoons made me think about doing one myself. As I am an absolute newbie on this field of art I am trying to get any advice and tip I can get hold of.
