Animal Wednesday - Mummy Cat

Leave it to National Geographic to have something out of the ordinary for halloween entertainment without even mentioning that it is Halloween.  In their November publication that comes in October there is an article about mummified animals.  I thought it was quite interesting.  Here is my rendition of a mummified cat. It is done with micron pens. Happy Animal Wednesday.

I really like this...especially being a former teacher of Ancient Egypt...just might be the right inspiration for me for an ATC card for my Egyptian series too! :)
