Week 48: Cubism

This is Pinky, one of my cat figurines.


Pinky recently read about Picasso and other Cubists and became quite enthralled with the possibilities. He has never been the same.


This points out the danger in having literate cat figurines: they read books, they develop a fondness for unfathomable artistic movements, and that’s the last you see of them.

Materials I used:

Staedtler 2H pencil
Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils
Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils
Large 28 year-old ceramic cat figurine who secretly admires Georges Braque.

  1. Lol! Love it, JJ 😀 Pinky is delightful in both forms 😉


    • Isn’t he great? I found him in a small shop in my old town–the shop stayed open just long enough for me to buy him and then closed–not enough business in the town I call Deadsville.

      I haven’t bought cat figurines for several years, I only like ones that are really special like this. When I recently unboxed my cat figurines after 2.5 years I was delighted to see them all–such scamps and personalities.
