This cat skull series was an experiment of sorts. First I wanted to call attention to the beautifully lost detail of a small cat skull and secondly I wanted to see if I could do a full series of images that were identical in background but featured a slightly different view of the skull. I started with #1 and #9 so that if I got bored I would have a pair of drawings. Then I did #5 so I could have a tryptic. I then did the rest of the odd numbers and had 5. But once I started with the even numbers I knew I would have to complete the series. The full set of 9 drawing took over a year to produce.

....and a cat has 9 lives.
