Starting from June 1st to August 31st, Sketch Lottery is having a free-for-all. Basically for summer 2018, draw any of the past Sketch Lottery subjects. Which meant I finally had a chance to sketch Alf.
Alf had this thing where he ate cats. So it’s only fitting that Alf met his match with Grumpy Cat.
I met Grumpy Cat once. During the summer of 2014. A Barnes and Noble book signing, located in the Union Square area of downtown Manhattan, NYC. Tartar Sauce (Grumpy Cat’s real name) was asleep. Tartar Sauce’s human liked my shirt. Here’s a photo of me when I was platinum blond. Before I went with my signature blue hair.
Anyway, back to the sketch. Originally I was going to ink the piece, but liked how the pencil work was coming along. So I kept it just the way it was. Really like this one a lot. Besides. Grumpy Cat is sort of like my spirit animal.
Yesterday I went to New York Comic Con 2014. Now I’m sick with the flu, which means I get to stay home and jump on the Inktober bandwagon.
What is Inktober you might ask? Well, it goes a little something like this…every day for the month of October, you can post a ink drawn sketch on your webpage, on Facebook, Tumblr, blog, etc. Sketch Lottery is also participating in Inktober on their Facebook page.
Here’s my contribution for today. Not my best work, but then again. I drew this speed sketch in about 5 – 7 minutes. Alf meets Grumpy Cat. Enjoy.
