I have been keeping up a 'Doodle a Day' sketchbook this year after seeing friends do it and thinking it looked like fun. It's actually really hard to remember to do it each day and I have been struggling a bit, but I am determined to keep at it - it's only February! I am finding it a nice way to get characters down quickly and work on things like character interaction, background scenery etc. I drew this pair a few weeks ago, and thought they had potential to be worked into a finished illustration, so I gave them a cat, a couple of armchairs and a rather garishly decorated living room. I hope they will be very happy together for many more years.
