Blue Cat drawing by Clive Hilton

This drawing of a blue cat continues a theme I was working on for a couple of weeks in which small sketchbook ink drawings were filled using single block colours. In this instance I wanted to convey an air of mystery and other-worldliness. The contoured background landscape is a technique I first explored as a boy when I became fascinated by contour lines on maps. On and off, I’ve continued to create these sort of ambiguous contoured landscapes over the years.
