Stripey Cat At Joshua Tree is my latest drawing that I created with colored pencils. This illustration was inspired by a day that I spent at Joshua Tree National Park, and a cat that I like to refer to as Stripey. Actually, Stripey is a conglomeration of two different cats. The pose for Stripey featured here is based on a photograph of a cat that used to live near me. However, my parents also have a striped cat, so I have used these two cats as a composite for my imagined Stripey cat. He lives at Joshua Tree National Park, and enjoys gazing out on the vistas filled Yucca brevifolia, which is the scientific name for Joshua trees.
