Sketch for Hugo's Courage
I've been working on several new pendant designs and wanted to post the drawing that symbolizes my cat Hugo. He is a big, fluffy Maine Coon that loves to play guard dog and scare all the critters away from our front door. Okay, well maybe it's the other way around. He acts like a bully but he's just a softy inside. I'm calling this design Courage because he is the spitting image of the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. I spent a lot of time looking at ancient cylinder seals and coins trying to find the right look for his mane and decided on a shape that gives it some motion. I can't wait to see this piece in silver!
