Okay, here it is: It’s string, it’s a cat. It’s the finish of “String Theory, According to Cats”.
This is a portrait of one of my pets who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Her name was Kathy.
Anyway, I had a rough night…and I find drawing cats to be soothing. So, what the heck! Let’s do another cat.
Draw a cat! Cats are fun to draw, and certainly people pleasing art. It’s a win/win!
However, why not dogs?
When I was working in the LaGuardia Airport branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gift Shop, we had a display of cat items. Notepads, notecard, notebooks, everything of note. A customer came in, said she hated cats, why not a set of dog items. We didn’t have a set of dog items.
This past Christmas, I was selling pajamas with a golden retriever in the pattern. A woman looked at them, and said no, she had a dachshund. As if the dachshund would get jealous!
For most cat lovers, a cat is a cat is a cat. But dog lovers are loyal to breeds, I think. Unless someone wants to do pictures of all the various breeds of dogs, well, the market for dog items is qualified by the customer’s preference.
