Sometimes i get discouraged by how expensive nice art supplies are...and that is usually about when i start drawing with whatever i find around the house. This usually includes Sharpie pens, Hi-Liter pens (highlighters) and colored markers!

Make a drawing or art piece using sharpies (and highlighters or other markers too if you have them) that fits the theme "KITTY CATS." You could draw a single cat or multiple ones, realistic, stylized or cartoonish, beautiful, lithe, slinky looking cats, or silly, fluffy, cutesy looking cats. Pet cats or wildcats like lynxes, tigers or panthers. You could draw a person or other animal wearing a cat costume! You could even do a scene with just one little cat in it, so long as the cat is prominent in the image and visible...whatever tickles your cat fancy! ;3

Your drawing must be at least postcard sized, preferably a bit bigger though (you could use a full sheet of computer paper or cardstock). Spend a little bit of time on making the piece look really good, around 1 HOUR of work (could be less, but preferably more), but DON'T spend any money on it if possible...this should be a CHEAP swap. Try to use things from around the house and if possible don't spend any extra money on supplies. Though this swap is Sender's Choice it is always nice to try to make something that your partner will like.

ALL NEWBIES MUST MESSAGE ME FIRST AND LET ME KNOW THAT THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS SWAP!!! If you are a newbie and HAVE NOT messaged me by the time swapping is supposed to start then you WILL BE DELETED. Also if any swappers with a rating BELOW 4.8 join they will be DELETED, period. If anybody gets flaked on i will angel or find someone to angel for you. Ok? :)

The only rules are 1.) SHARPIE MARKER should feature prominently in this piece, 2.) Try not to spend any money (except, of course, on shipping), and 3.) Make your drawing CAT themed!

Here is a great example of a big scene with just one cat: Louis Wain Annual scene

In fact, Louis Wain has ALL SORTS of crazy awesome cat art: Early Indian Irish
