Illustration Friday: Play



Well, I haven't gotten any farther than this, sketched out last Saturday. And the week is quickly slipping by. So... in the quest to put something up and not skip a topic, I offer this takeoff on the dogs-playing-poker theme. If I get time, I'll finish it up along with the offering for the next topic.

Last Friday night my wife and I came home from the movies to find our cats, Skweex and Tiger, sitting on the living room floor playing some five-card draw. Imagine our surprise. I mean, Skweex knows Tiger isn't allowed in the house.

Peace, everyone, and never draw to an inside straight.

Looking forward to seeing this finished. Hope you can find the time. 'No time' seems to be a common theme right now. Whatever happened to those relaxing dog days of summer?
How does that go... When the mouse is away, the cats will play?

I think Cats would be more likely to cheat than dogs... I love their fluffy furry bodies!

Funny and cute, and cats just always do as they please, but looks like one of them definitely has the edge-love it. Love the artwork and the idea!

It's a cat thing...I catch my two girls, Jezebel and Samantha, playing cards all the time. They try to hide them quickly, but I know what they're up to. I just wish they'd invite me to play:> Good one!

Yup .. that would be Miss Simba in our house! Then she would pounce on all the cards, natch. Very cute.

Smooch,
