Percy has barely featured in Cat-of-the-Day lately. This is mostly because he has gone off his beanbag entirely, and taken to the sofa (which is not in my studio), and also because Arthur has been so amusing with boxes. I was so desperate for a sketch of Percy I snapped a quick shot of him as he sat on top of our garage (which is in fact an ancient crumbling stone barn with a rusty corrugated iron roof, quite artistic in its decay). I couldn’t draw all this outside – the surface of the phone is too shiny, and so I had to retreat indoors and draw from the photo.
So here is Percy, above the Jerusalem Artichokes.
The construction in the wall beside the fancy corrugated plastic window is one of my home-made Mason Bee houses. The baby bees are sleeping now, and won’t be out until April next year. 🙂
