Some hand coloring of the Eulalie sketch of "Cat in the Cupboard"
Nancy and Lynne were wondering if I chose my name from the previous Richardson illustration. To be honest, I can't remember which illustration I drew my inspiration from - there are so many charming ones of this rhyme. I only know that over the few days as I cast my mind for appropriate phrases my two cats suddenly learned how to open my lower kitchen cupboards and became obsessed as only cats can be. Suddenly, I saw one or more illustrations of this rhyme and it flashed on me as perfect. Easy to read and remember, you know? And pertinent to my life ;-)
I have set up a banner in my Etsy shop, and never loaded anything else into the shop. I became obsessed with my Flickr photostream (as only Kats can, right?) The one I chose was a Eulalie black and white, which was easy to reduce to a sketch which I had my daughter hand color - just the band I would need for the horizontal banner.
