Cat and Mouse


Albrecht's cat, Tricocone, brought him a mouse and ate it right in front of his studio door.  'I heard the bones crack. Grrr.........' says Albrecht.

A tragedy for the little mouse but this is a moment of cruel beauty in graphite.  I'm going to treasure it Albrecht. 

I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to know what 'Tricocone' means, apart from Bone Crusher!

It is a treasure of a sketch.

Isn't this a stunning image - so simple yet so beautifully draw.

Superb drawing. One unlucky mouse!

Oh I love the tragedy of it all, beautifully captured.

What a beautiful drawing Albrecht - in spite of the bone-crunching! I'm still waiting eagerly for my treasure to arrive (had a glimpse of it on your blog :-)

I know I should more carefully write.
The name I've given to this cat is TRICOLORE because of the orange, black and white coloures.
