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.
