Draw a cat!  Cats are fun to draw, and certainly people pleasing art.  It’s a win/win!

However, why not dogs?

When I was working in the LaGuardia Airport branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gift Shop, we had a display of cat items.  Notepads, notecard, notebooks, everything of note.  A customer came in, said she hated cats, why not a set of dog items.  We didn’t have a set of dog items.

This past Christmas, I was selling pajamas with a golden retriever in the pattern.  A woman looked at them, and said no, she had a dachshund.  As if the dachshund would get jealous!

For most cat lovers, a cat is a cat is a cat. But dog lovers are loyal to breeds, I think.  Unless someone wants to do pictures of all the various breeds of dogs, well, the market for dog items is qualified by the customer’s preference.

So, here’s a sketch of “String Theory, According to Cats”.
