Nicole Schork was the lucky winner of the Pet Portrait contest! Her name was chosen by a random number drawing held on September 1st. Sadly, Nicole’s cat Patches is 18 years old and dying of Kidney infection so this made winning all the more special for her. I hope that the drawing brings happy memories for her. Below is the photo she sent along with the drawing I did for her. The drawing is graphite tinted with colored pencil to bring out some of her calico coloring.
