True Story

This week's Illustration Friday theme is "strings." And Mom was right..."strings" brings to mind "cat" and "toy."

My little cat, Myrna, cannot resist a ball of yarn. It's true. One evening, she was playing with extra yarn that I had balled up for her and managed to hogtie herself. I have a picture of her on my fridge, looking very surprised to be all tangled in yarn.

(FYI she doesn't get to play with yarn unattended.)

My favorite part of this picture is the top panel, because Myrna's paws look just like that.

I have new Radishes roughed out, but not drawn yet. It was an unusually busy week and my annual autumn cold got the best of me after the 12-hour conference day on Tuesday. Glad to be breathing almost unlaboredly today.
