Sketchbook Project: Maneki Neko (lucky cat) Collection


Maneki Neko Collection from Marta Tesoro on Vimeo.

Tada!  I finished my Maneki Neko sketchbook on Sept 11!  I am really please with the results and I managed to draw all my ceramic lucky cats!  I still have a few cloth ones, clothes and battery operated ones that haven't been drawn, but hey, I am hoping to create a book out of it so I can add those in as extras along with any new lucky cat I may buy!

Here are some work in progress shots and pages!

These cats were gifted to me at different times but they're pretty much the same family!

My favourite page from my book and I love that music box I bought from Hokkaido

I really enjoyed drawing in the book and it was so good to do a themed project consistently.   I've had a lot of work stuff on my plate as soon as I finished drawing the Maneki Neko sketchbook.  My contract ended at Moshi officially on Sept 16 but ended up picking up a commercial project the next day with another studio I work with. I had to spend most of the last 3 weeks finishing up pending projects.  I finally got everything done, except the commercial job, last night.  Yay!  

Hopefully I get to blog more, I had this post in my draft box for aaages!
