BOXPUBLISHED: Thursday 2nd September 2010, Wednesday 8th September 2010, and Wednesday 29th September 2010.

THE STORY: All cats love boxes. All of them. The look on a cats face when it is in a box is one of my most favourite things in the world. Even SAD FACE loves a box. In this illustration SAD FACE has a box, and regardless of the look on his face, you can be guaranteed that he is delighted with this.

One of my real life cats Monkey is especially fond of boxes, and loves to sit in them, looking out on the world. Just watching. Smiling. Sometimes she falls asleep in them. It doesn't even matter if the box is too small. In fact, she rather likes small boxes.

The 'BOX' illustration was drawn on brilliant white 135gsm sketching paper, with Faber Castle Pitt Artist Pens, and finished in Photoshop.

  1. Yes, boxes are popular. We bought a t.v. a few months ago and left the huge box on its side for them. Wheezy explored, then ignored. But Patches took up residence in there; it became "The Kitty Cave." We were very sad when we eventually had to get rid of it, but not nearly as bummed as he was!
