Original Ink Drawing by Anita Inverarity

Ink and Metallic Pens on Illustration Board
This is my drawing for the Bad Apples Artist Collective Auction- Feb 2013
The theme was Madame Butterfly and here is Cho Cho San behind the screen just before she takes her life. There is no cat in the original story of course but I guess I didn’t want her to be alone.

    Beautiful works as always, Anita. I love the way the shape of the cat almost mirrors the shape of her hair.

  • Thank you so much Elaine- a bit of a happy accident, wasnt aware of the mirroring until it was finished lol xx
