Be Yourself (MMTPT62)

Speaking of cats (See yesterday's post), I had to DRAW this one! This is for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. This week's teapot is a red and black zebra. Cindy says the zebra's name is Zeke. He's a rock star, and we're going to Africa for our tea party and to hear his band in concert. The only thing is, his parents aren't to happy about his appearance. You know how those teenagers can be! I invited Ben, a rare white tiger from India to come along and try to set Zeke straight. Ben's advice is: "Be Yourself!" Ben is proud to be white and black. Zeke should be, too! There's no need to dye your hair bright red to get attention; just wear some bling!! LOL! Ben likes bling as shown on his sign.

I looked at some cat images online to get ideas and then sketched Ben in pencil on card stock. When I was happy about how he looked, I went over him with black journaling marker; then, I erased my pencil marks. My card is not entirely black and white because I wanted to show Ben prowling through the grass on the African plains. Thanks for stopping by!!!
