The last illustration in my book.



Gizmo doesn't ever look this manic, but she loves to play with pencils and pearls. The pearls are not in the illustration.

Gizmo also has mink chew toys. She is a very classy cat.

redo




I reworked the eyes and mouth. There was something odd about them. Thank goodness for computer graphic tablets.
The result looks more like Gizmo too.

It's the right side of the chin (observer's left, subject's right)

Gizmo actually has a chin like that. I'll leave it alone. I thought the eyes were too far apart and not level in the original; the second one looks less rabid.

Awesome work! I like the changes... I prefer the 2nd drawing.

Yes, there may be another change before the book goes to print. I may add a caricature of myself next to Gizmo.

I forebore adding a caricature of myself, so the illustration is just Gizmo. Underneath I wrote "My final thank you is to Gizmo the cat, whose gentle disposition and playful nature materially assisted me during the writing of this book."

Or something like that. At first I thought it was a bit soppy thanking a cat, but I figured, why not? She worked hard keeping me from burning out on this project, she modeled for the cover, and she was a great stress reliever.

So she gets a thankyou at the end of the book.
