For my project, I am proposing collaboration with my house cat, Leonard. He is a two year old black Bengal and very curious whenever I draw or work on the floor of my room. Usually, I place a piece of paper on the ground and instantly he comes over, purrs, inspects my movements and then curls up on top of the paper.

Every time he does this, it is in a different position, a different part of the paper. To document this, I will trace around his body every time and on a different sheet of paper each time. I hope to end up with a collection of "drawings" inspired by and using his movements.
