What I love about cats is their ability to totally relax! This picture of my cousin's cat is typical of the position that he regularly gets into for a snooze! This picture is done by scratching through a layer of black India ink to reveal the white chalk. I can't draw first as if this line isn't scratched then the line, or the marks from rubbing out will be obvious. I draw the design very very lightly with a scalpel blade, making sure I have it right before I start getting a deeper scratch mark exposing more of the white. I left this piece black and white as traditional scraperboards always were, and I liked the idea of leaving a lot of black so the focus of the picture is all on the face.
