Live Drawing in Coppercat Video – MetalSome

Here’s me drawing decorative cats in an impromptu music video: “MetalSome” by Coppercat.

I’ll admit I had the easy part: Jeremy Richardson aka Coppercat is doing live audio production, solving 2 Rubik’s cubes, herding cats, and shooting the video footage.

I’m drawing spontaneously, in charcoal, which is good and messy, and allows for drawing high-contrast images quickly without a lot of pressure and repetition. In my decorative animal drawings, I like to incorporate deco styles from all over the world. This one has a celtic-florentine flavor: I particularly enjoyed detailing the knot-work in the cats’ tails!
