Lola La-La-La-La Lola

20 Nov

This is the oldest cat from my family (she lives with my parents). Lola is a Bengal. She was the runt of her litter so she is tiny but quite ferocious. She loves attention and is very jealous. If you pick her up and say “kiss” she will bump her nose on your nose…she likes to do this three times in a row, but if you do it more she will bite your nose (then she’ll put her paw on your cheek and dig her claws in a little in case you decide to put her down). When I would get home from school we used to play this game where I would chase her into my parents room then go back to the living room and she would slowly come out and when she got close I would chase her again. Lola is best friends with my middle sister and I am using this painting to blackmail her into visiting me in Chicago (my family lives in New Hampshire).

One more thing: One time Lola jumped on my face in the middle of the night, when I was asleep. Having a cat jump on your face when you are dead asleep is one of the most disturbing things you could wake up too. I freaked out and her natural instinct was to claw my face. When I got up the next day I had streaks of dried blood running down my face.

Works In Progress

These are 3 pet portraits that I’m working on. A Bengal cat named Lola, a Chihuahua named Titan and a Pomeranian named Bear. They are pretty much complete, I just have to give them pupils add the captions and fix a few minor mishaps (I have a tendency to smudge). For Bear the panel was too small to really add a cartoon bubble so I am going to add the writing to the background which is something I do sometimes.
