Spot On!

Cheetah Burt is not only an artist, but he's exceptionally fast, as cheetahs are known to be. Is it "cheetahs," or "cheeti?"

Just kidding. But srlsy, folks. He's been clocked at over 300hpm and 150chpm (hatches and cross-hatches per minute), and holds several gesture-drawing championship titles. Oodles of doodles in a minute amount of minutes.

He's pictured here holding several Micron pens - his artistic tool of choice. He holds the #002 in his mouth and 005, 05 and 08 in his left paw. Sometimes all are put to use at once.

It's even been rumored that CB dips his tail in india ink and uses it as a brush. How very resourceful!

He always draws when there are plenty of gazelle and antelope fans around. If they are impressed enough by his art, then he is guaranteed to never be a starving artist.

This Burtimal was done with watercolor and some Prismacolor pens.

Hope it was all you hoped it would be when you insisted I draw a cheetah, Ribs! I think next up is an opossum...


  1. Your self-description is as whimsical as your self-'burtrait'. I love your water coloring, it reminds me of children's books. Very creative both in visuals and prose. :)

  2. Thanks for the great compliments, Lianne!

  3. Hahaha this is making me laugh my head off! love it! and the hair :D

  4. Haha, thanks!! It's such a silly series.
