Illustration Friday: Fortune
Just a little contour ink drawing of a plush Maneki Neko (Lucky Cat) and a great (and true) fortune I got from a fortune cookie not too long ago. For those of you who don't know, Maneki Nekos invite good fortune. I like to collect unique Maneki Nekos (my husband and I call them "fortune kitties"), and have a small collection, including a couple of plush ones, a wind chime, and a wooden netsuke. One of my real cats broke one of my favorite ones late last year, a cast iron bell fortune kitty.
