Today, some inspiration from Carter is a Painter’s Cat, by Carolyn Sloan, with illustrations by Fritz Wegner, published in 1971.

Carter is about an artist’s cat who gets repainted every morning on a new sheet of paper. He looks different every day and he’s never sure what to expect. It’s a great story, and Wegner clearly had fun creating each and every illustration. He combined lots of cool techniques in his watercolors throughout—textures, patterns, splatters. His work is joyful and vibrant but there’s also a distinct edge to it. Enjoy!

  2. I have this book from when I was a kid and I gave it to my six year old son a year ago. He loves it! I just read it to him ten minutes ago. Amazon has it on their site with no pictures. Thanks for the pictures.
