“I challenge you to make something and leave it somewhere public — somewhere it might be found. Something not too grand or careful, but honest and perhaps lovely. When you’re creating it, think about one person happening upon it. Make them a message. If you enjoy this feeling of caring about something without feeling precious about it, do it again. And again.”
There's a stray cat that sits under my car every morning. He sees off the others, who all have their own bit of territory. If I leave the front door open too long, he thinks he's welcome.
We all know these cats, and usually ignore them. I decided to draw their portraits and leave them around the place we live. I wanted to celebrate their individual character and (perhaps) encourage others to give them a bit of thought.
