The Flyman Incident – 3 Drawing Series

1. … Flyman returns from a late night jaunt with an impressive battle wound …

Drawn from memory while the cat was at the vets.  His black fur goes further down his legs.  But I’m sure he wont be cross with me for getting it a little wrong.

2. … Rachel goes grey and nearly faints after seeing blood and inspecting Fly’s leg …

This is my favourite in the series of 3 drawings about the cat’s battle with (we later found out) a fox. 

I am quite squeamish with injuries – particulary blood.  Sometimes I am fine but usually I start the countdown to fainting.  Been this way since I was a teenager – my mom blames my overactive imagination 😉

Now I have a fancy name for it too after doing some research … I suffer from vasovagal syncope So don’t try to test me with gory stories as you will succeed in making me pass out.

3. … Mr Creative remains calm, cleans up the mess and sorts everyone out …

I can rely on Mr Creative in a crisis.  Who says men can’t multi-task?  Mine cleaned the floor, mopped blood off the cat and stopped me from fainting and from having a hysterical panic attack (though he might now know that bit).

I think the slight differences in drawing style, even though they were drawn in succession, shows that I am most confident about drawing myself, followed by the cat (perhaps), and find drawing Mr Creative a nerve wracking experience!  I am hesitant because I want to get it right – and it shows in the style of the drawing especially when compared to the others.  I haven’t quite captured him yet.

Having said that I’m very pleased with the second drawing and very, very pleased to have the real Mr Creative around 🙂

Oh and the pesky cat, of course.


  1. Group hug to you, Mr Creative and Flyman. I wish for quick recovery.
    Animals recover from injury much quciker than us human. But keeping them from moving around is much harder than humans…
