What is it about cats that's so fascinating? On a personal level, the current absence of a cat in my life is at least one good reason I want to draw them. And now that I've gone digital (for now, anyway), their form is an easy one to experiment with, and the feline pokerface one that suits my mood. Right now, for example, I wouldn't want to draw pigs. They look too happy, even when they really have nothing to smile about. Especially in this country.
The skill I'm trying my hand at in these two pieces is digital collage. I must say, it was a lot of fun to digitally cut up an older painting and incorporate it here.
A little about myself:
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website! I have lived in Spain, Mexico, France and the United States, but now make my home in Germany. I have a Ph.D. in Literary Studies and a Master's in TESOL, and have published several books for children, among them El Loro Tico Tango and El Fandango de Lola, a 2012 Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book. As a writer and an artist I'm in constant conversation with my own anxious mind even as I celebrate the joyful possibilities of our crazy, incomprehensible world.
