This guy’s been framed and on my wall for a few years now. I love animals as subject material because they emerge on the paper so easily. Don’t ask me why.
Tambo is the beloved pet of a dear friend. Tambo doesn’t warm up to me when I visit, which is funny because I am a ‘cat’ person. Tambo is Tambo. And, frankly, Tambo is weird. When my dear friend sent me a photo of Tambo in this pose years ago, it was easy to warm up to him artistically, even though he will never warm up to me.
