That is one busy doodle, isn't it? Can you even tell what's going on in that room? Probably not, because I can't even tell what's going on. Truth be told, I spent far longer on this doodle than I have on most of the other entries in my sketchbook. When I add that many little bits and bobs and pumpkin craziness to a doodle, it takes a relative eternity to color it all in. I enjoyed it, though, because creating anything related to autumn, and of course cats, always makes me happy.
That hectic pumpkin doodle up there is our contribution to Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop.
Happy Caturday to all!
Did you know?
Did you know that famed scientist and engineer Nikola Tesla had a childhood cat who helped spark his fascination with the concept of electricity? It is said that Tesla once wrote of how he petted his childhood cat, Macak, on a cold, dry winter day. When he petted his cat on that particular day, there was a resulting static shock that greatly intrigued young Tesla. At the time, Tesla did not know what had caused the spark of light and crackling jolt that occurred when his hand touched his cat, but he was determined to find out. It was his father who who told him that such a thing seemed like electricity, equating it to a storm hitting trees. It's been said that from that day on, thanks to his cat Macak, Nikola Tesla became invested in learning more about electricity.
