catopia By Lillian Shanahan
(06/07/10 08:55:27)Related animal: Cat after I had made several drawings with the cat by marking the places she would swat at.
first I started by pretending to draw the cat which would make her curious and walk over to check out what I was doing.
then i would mark where her paws went. I did several of these until she got bored and walked away. distracted by her stuffed mouse in the corner.
i wanted then to put more of myself into the piece because the cat got to choose where the ink went so I collaged his marks into more of a picture. And i called it Catopia because it reminds me of some cat Mesopotamia.
