Why Is My Cat Named Squid??

Squid & Arty

I started this drawing about 2 months ago…!! Pulled it out last night and finished that last boring patch of fur that was left to draw. 😛

This is a portrait of our cat Squid. She’s named Squid because I suggested it as a joke name, and Sam wouldn’t stop calling her that.

It magically clicked one day, and here we are stuck with good ol’ Squid cat.

I drew the portrait on Strathmore Artagain paper with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. Polychromos are great for vibrancy — the Prismacolors hit the highlights and dark areas well.
