Studio Companion was created from life right in my studio one night. Our Himalayan cat Jazz was a somewhat willing model knowing he'd get treats afterwards.
The medium used was ink and wash on hot press (slick) paper. My red 'chop mark' was inspired by our Tortoise Shell Emily B. who, filling her paws from my palette, walked across a painting I was working on one night, adding her imprimatur to my work in progress.

| Hi Drew, I received your Calendar and Journal today with the personal note. Thank you so much! Lukas, who helped me open the parcel, also says “thanks” for the Styrofoam peanuts. Ollie, who has only three legs, is less prone to chasing things, but says thanks as well. And I will most certainly enjoy the Calendar and Journal. All the best, Margaret
Hi Drew, Just a quick note to let you know I just received my 4th! proof of your wonderful drawings. I think that you are so gifted and I can respect how much you love those beautiful creatures just has I have my whole life. This last drawing I just received is a likeness of my cat I lost years ago. He was such a handsome boy. I miss him to this day. Great work!! I'll be in touch. PS Thank you for the shipping discount! Take Care, Chef Christine
Hi Drew, Coincidentally, we have a male seal point Siamese named Rocky! These will make a total of 6 of your Siamese prints we have. I was excited to find color ink prints in a shop in Siesta Key while on vacation in Sarasota in June this year. We first heard of you on our vacations over the years there. We have 3 seal point Siamese: Rocky and siblings Toby and Macy. "Meezers" has a particular place of honor on our mantel over the fireplace and is my favorite. Love your Meezers! Thanks, Drew. -Renee
Hello, Mr. Catmandrew! I'm reaching out to you because a while ago (5 years or so) my dad purchased a proof #5/50 of "Oasis" from you. It's by far my favorite piece of art I own... but anyways... I lost my dad 3 years ago to cancer and I know if he was alive today he'd probably one of everything you have created. But I'd like a new print of a tabby like my cat Monte Carlo, and am currently browsing your website to find the perfect one. You're the best at your craft, and I just wanted to say thank you for making me smile everytime I look at "Oasis". You're amazing. And thank you sharing your gift with the world.
