A: An Ambush of Tigers

April 12, 2011

A friend of mine, Lisa at “Life with Flowers,” is doing this A to Z April challenge at the blog Tossing It Out.” Since I’m always looking for inspiration, figured I’d begin a series for A to Z using my favorites: collective nouns for animal groups. As you can see, my first one is for A: “An Ambush of Tigers.” Big cats surprising a “school of fish”…

    Oh, I am so excited to see you doing this…and taking it one step further with ‘collective nouns.’ I have a penchant for those :). I will be checking in daily to see your inspired sketching.

    This reminds me of kindergarten. They used pair us off with a sixth grader and designate them as our “buddy”. Some sixth graders would bring their kinderbuddy a present around Christmas. My “buddy” told me he had a present for me so I went to see him and he laughed and told me he was just joking. And people wonder why I’m so jaded. . .

    I remember how big they seemed at the time. Giants! Like tigers surrounding us guppies. Now I see a sixth grader and thingk “I could take him. Probably.”

    Good illo. I love the tension. The tiger in the BG looks like he is saying “guys… c’mon. lets go. leave them alone.”

    Pure genius–just pure genius. I love this one–reminds me of my darling kitty cat, who loves to pounce on anything which moves. If he had friends, I know he would be just like these fellows.

    What a fabulous imagination you have! I noticed in some of your drawings you use a brownish colored pencil. What kind of pencils do you use?

    I just can’t get enough of looking at your artwork. You are one of my favorite artists ever.

    You are an awesome artist and your work is really inspiring. But somehow these tigers look like lions to me.

      Hmmm, Yeah, I’m not so practiced in tigers, been drawing lions forever and you know a cat’s a cat… thanks for the comment, seriously love it when I get constructive comments. May need to revisit the tigers…Please keep returning!!
