Nigel

Nigel

I made this little drawing for my friend John. He has a very  cool and fearless cat named Nigel. They live on the top floor of a building in Long Island City and Nigel paces the edge of the balcony without a worry!  I guess he would be a member of Skyclan if he was a Warrior.

The illustration was done on a trading card size piece of Bristol. You can buy them in packages but I usually cut my own.  When I give them as gifts, I put the cards in those plastic sleeves and attach some magnets on the back so they can be put on the refrigerator.

I took some photos of Nigel last time we visited, so you can see the reference.

And here’s the view from John’s terrace. Imagine Nigel patroling the guard rail!
