I like this piece very much, looks like a minimalist revisioning of Edward Gorey.

I agree with ArtSparker. There is a strong sense of emotion coming through here. Whether intentional or not the fact that the figure resembles the letter W adds to its appeal.

Really great sketch. The title is perfect.

Very nice, cat. Even though it evokes a lot of tiredness and worn-out-ness (to me, anyway) I really like it.

There is something that resonates when an artist can so beautifully depict a mood that I often have a hard time understanding!

Cat, you've made a perfect sketch of me after a two-hour karate workout in the garage during this last Topeka heatwave. Worst part-- I still felt like this forty-eight hours later.

Amazing how you create with some simple lining such emotion. A very good and strong piece.

I remember being that - so crushingly weary that all you can think of of is rest, but knowing that none is forthcoming.

Thank you Cat, for the picture.
