260 - MITCH - DAVE EDWARDS - MIXED MEDIA - 2009 by 


I drew our younger cat Mitch in graphite and coloured pencils and then painted a grey upside-down L-shaped border using acrylic paint. When that dried, I drew (using a ruler) squares. I drew free-hand mosaic pieces in each square with fineliner pen and then erased the guideline squares and filled in the pieces with coloured pencils.

Yeah – okay – I know it’s boring reading all that, but lots of people actually ask what mediums were used; myself included :)

For anyone interested in getting to know Mitch and his step-brother Mao, I keep an occasional illustrated diary of their adventures here on Redbubble

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    He looks like he just grabbed the most powerful, hypnotic book on that shelf and thinks he now has the knowledge to chat up each interesting cat in your neighborhood.

    Cool drawing.

  • I guess you could say he likes to get his teeth into a good book :)

    A real cutie Dave …

  • You’re so right; he is. He’s the fluffiest cat we’ve ever had – we have to hoover the carpet twice a day because he leaves a trail of fur behind him – seriously.

    It;s wonderful dave..really a good one
    I like the way the patterns are all different yet compliment each other..well done.

  • Thanks Cath. What I did was to keep a note of all the pencils I used to draw Mitch and then use them to do the mosaic pattern.
