Cat, n.- 1 a : a carnivorous mammal long domesticated as a pet

Yay! I'm posting before Thursday! Unfortunately, it's only a black and white pencil sketch. I'm trying to be diligent and finish my Showcase piece before the week is up. I go to New York next week! (ack!) I still need to have my piece matted and postcards made up, so until I get that accomplished, this is my contribution to Illustration Friday's topic of cats. I'll try to post a color study later this week. (oh, and click on the picture for a much better view.)
Here we see Calvin and the family cat, Blanco. Today Calvin has decided that being a cat is the best thing to be.
