Post 2288 - Samson: A Cat's Tale, Parts 18 and 19

Mark Dooley sent me these a few days ago, and this is my first chance to put 'em up. 

I know that there is a sad ending to this tale, but I am enjoying this storyline very much.  I'm a softie.  A cat person.  I can't help it.  Sue me.

To those who may think that Mark's art style is very simple, drawing anything simply, with an economy of motion and brushstrokes, is very hard work and can only be done with years of experience and hard work.  So there!  If I could draw one millionth as well as Mark, I'd be a happy Bevboy.

I know that Mark reads these posts, so let me and him know what you think of this storyline.

Off to see my mother this weekend.  I will still blog.  Don't you worry.  All 4.7 of you need your daily fix.

Thanks for the compliments, Bev. It's only been in the last year or so that I've felt completely comfortable doing ink and brush work, knowing where to apply it and when to back off and allow the initial linework by pen do its job. Most of my strip art I render during services at church, and I get a kick out of the young ones gathering around to watch me draw, especially this last couple of weeks since I've been doing cats.

As for the sad ending coming up, I wouldn't completely say it will be a sad thing. As I've mentioned before, Samson had a long and colorful life by cat standards, and he was always surrounded by people who adored him. And we got that love back tenfold.

Still more to come: Demon's last days, the arrival of Syryn, transferring the kids to the new house, and the flood.

Yes, that's what I said. The flood.
