Abyssinian Cat Breed Caricatures

Doing these Abyssinian cat breed caricatures was close to my heart - I have two Abys myself. They sure wondered a bit why did I disturb their peaceful melting process in sunspots while drawing these, but they are a rather level-headed lot (especially in warm suspots) so I got my chance to check the details.

cartoon aby

This was the very first Aby caricature I drew. You probably know that Aby coats have ticking - that means four different bands of color in each hair. The overall effect is a beautiful (in this case) brown color.  I did not even try to paint the effect on this little cat.

I named this Cartoon aby, as it looks more like a cartoon character than a real caricature.

Caricature Aby

Here. on the other hand, I have made a real caricature. (Which usually means drawing a bigger head to a small body). The eyes and big ears are emphasized and I even tried to catch the way light plays on the Abys coat. (Our own Abys practically glisten in the sun - their coat is so silky and shiny.)

The captivating eyes of the Aby are emphasized by the lighter-colored "eye paint". And I hope I managed to catch the intelligent and kind look of the cat's eyes.

black and white Aby

And of course I could not resist trying to catch the sillhouette of the Abyssinian. This time in black and white. And in a more realistic style. (Which is my normal style - making cartoon or caricature cats seems to require more sketching and drawing than realistic cat drawings.)

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
