Sketch of Beaker

Above is a drawing that I did a while back of one of my favorite cats, Beaker! When I came across it, it reminded me of being cozy and curled up while it's cold outside. (and thinking of all this snow made me wanted to post it) It also reminded of how I used to sketch a lot more so I hope that I can do that more often. There is also an inspiring drawing quote by Cennino Cennini that always seems to make me want to pick up a pencil and sketch, and it goes like this:

"Do not fail, as you go on, to draw something every day, for no matter how little it is, it will be well worth while, and it will do you a world of good. "(Cennino Cennini)

Happy Groundhog Day!

In honor of Groundhog Day here is a coloring page from my upcoming book. The coloring page will eventually be available on as a part of free activities for this book.
On another note Phil's prediction today was :

*But don't be mad at the groundhog because it's not his fault ;)
