Of my 4 cats and Earl da dog Guido is the most faithful studio companion. Sometimes this is a good thing as he brings me such joy. But sometimes we disagree on where he ought to loll about. Here I've laid out a decoy sketchbook, so I can work in another without his assistance. Unfortunately I forgot the pen. My favorite pen. Clearly this look of feigned indifference is actually a challenge: grab the pen if you dare. Since I hate getting blood on my drawings... I opted for a pencil instead.
