It's Mancat Monday. You know what that means? It means you get a dose of Evan today. More specifically, you get a good ol' view of his adorable nose.
Is that not a magnificent mancat nose or what? Don't you just love all those freckles? I sure do.
Flashback Doodle of the Day
As we mentioned yesterday, we're sharing a few more flashback doodles than usual for a week or two while I work on some writing projects and while I also work on some of the autumnal doodles I already have planned out. The first series of flashback doodles I'm sharing was created back in 2018, and it's all about furry friends and their writing projects. A little like this:

Did you know that melanin comes in two forms? Melanin, as you all certainly know, is the pigment responsible for the color of skin, hair, and eyes. The two forms of melanin are eumelanin and pheomelanin. Eumelanin produces colors in shades of black and brown. Pheomelanin produces colors in shades of red and yellow, or cream. This means that orange tabbies, ranging from bright orange to creamy orange tabbies, get their pigmentation from pheomelanin. Pheomelanin also plays a role in the orange color of calicoes and torties. Black and brown shades on cats, on the other hand, are the result of eumelanin. These two forms of melanin also of course play similar roles in dogs, humans, and other species.
