Artist's Statement

My cat, a female orange tabby.

I'm undecided about whether to use

the locals' name for her ("Tong", which means "gold"),

or call her "Sputnik" because she's small and always in orbit around me (The Russian name "Спутник" means literally "co-traveler", "traveling companion" or "satellite"),

or "Bertrand Russell's Teapot"'… for the same reason, and because she purrs like a boiling teapot.

Pencil sketch, lightly colored in Photoshop.
