Sleepy Beauty by Adam Stone

Drawn in 2007. Age 20.

Drawn with 2H, HB, 2B, 3B pencils on smooth bristol board.

Sadly Morris passed away in 2007 so I drew him as I remembered him best:
as a beautiful, young and healthy kitten.

Thank you kindly for looking.

    Adam you are really a talented artist.

  • Thank you so much Ganz, I really appreciate all your kind comments. I just updated this one to a better quality scan, which is nice because know the darker tone is more clear.

    Thank you again mate.

    Oh my.. Love the way you drew Morris.. wish i could draw half as good as you.. then probably i’d have a better piece to remember Brown by.. I’m sure Morris miss you as much as you miss him.. n_n

  • Thank you :-)

    I’m sorry you lost Brown, though i’m sure the memories you cherish keep his or her soul alive. I know Morris is still around, bless his little cottons. One day I hope to draw another version of him, one capturing his adorably cute old and scruffy self. He only had one tooth!

    Thank you again, I look forward to seeing more of your work :-)

    Ah thats adorable! <3

  • Thank you Rosie. He was so adorable, sadly my drawing does his real-life self no justice. At the very least i hope i’ve captured his peacefulness.

    I remember picking him up when he was just a kitten, i was only young myself, and he was lying there so peacefully, with one eye just slightly opened. After he past away that image of him remained strongly in my mind, so i just had to draw it down.

    Thank you again x

    Adam, all your love for Morris exudes intensely from this lovely drawing. Our companions mold our lives and when they flutter to Heaven they leave a part of them with us, inseparable to be.

    Thank you all.

    I think it is wonderful how people are embracing this picture. I have two others planned of Morris, another as a kitten and the other as his scruffy, smelly self. Thank you again :-)
