Illustration Friday: Pet Peeves

I didn't think I would do an entry this week. I guess I've been successful in eliminating some of my negative thinking, I couldn't think of a single pet peeve off the top of my head. And I got stuck visually on cats and dogs... Then I realized it didn't have to be MY pet peeve, it could be a peeve of my pet's! My cat hates to be combed--and she's a long haired cat so it really is necessary or it is hairball city around here.
I'm still experimenting with my computer emulated style here. I did this one in a positive process (adding black lines) instead of a negative process (erasing away everything but the line.) I think the negative process works better in emulating the paper style. But is more time consuming.

Nice illo! My pet bunny does not enjoy being combed, either.

Cute illustration. Nice linework. I like the cat's pose. You've captured the fact that kitty doesn't like being combed.

Thanks for your comments!

This is nice. I like how the cat's claws are exposed! Hopefully yours doesn't do that!

Nice effect, love the swiping paw and flicking tail! Glad our cats are short haired, although our one cat does quite like being towel dried when he's been out in the rain!
