Back to drawing kittens today for my potential kitten-related job.
I went to the library to look at books about kittens. Now I am searching flickr. Looking at kittens in motion didn't help. Thinking about kittens and discussing kittens didn't help.
I tried tracing photographs just to understand the proportions.
All my drawings either look like small cats or weird furry none-specific bobble-headed creatures, and I am supposed to work it out by Friday.
I just don't get it. Whatever it is that gets people excited about kittens rather than cats in general completely eludes me. I've noticed before that I don't generally find baby animals cuter than other animals. Maybe I have missing genes.
I have a feeling this particular illustration gig isn't meant for me...
Ah well. Otherwise, it's been a splendid day. I also got out a book on how to draw comics, just because it's good to keep up to date, and I donated a bag of useful-looking novels and reference books that I don't really care for, and I looked out from the back window of the library towards the Thames. The London Eye was glittering. It really felt like Spring.
