Scooter on Hassock, by Jeffrey, 9/11/08

Scooter on the Hassock

Pencil on lined notebook paper, 8.5" x 11"

Scooter the Cat smiles happily as he poses on a hassock in the foreground. Background elements and details, from left to right: Pantry closet door; doorway into kitchen; kitchen table and chair, with hanging light (turned on) above; Joseph; parlor lightswitch; endtable with lamp; couch with tissue box and tissue, above; far right: edge of coffee table with remote control holder and oversized novelty pen.

This ultra-realistic composition displays a layout that exactly corresponds to the area depicted. The smile on Scooter's face lends an air of whimsy to his serenely Sphinx-like pose. Note the detail on the lamp base and tissue box.

ooooooh! I L-O-V-E the new blog idea! Kids' drawings are always fascinating. Alas, I have no source of them.
I do however have a fridge pretty much plastered with bits o' crap--some found, some acquired--all of it weird. I really like the detail in this drawing. Way to go Jeffrey!
