Sometimes you are having a perfectly nice night, and a bottle of wine, or possibly even more wine than that, and you are suddenly overcome with the urge to compete. Such was the situation Quinn and I found ourselves in when we conceived of the great Drunk, Left-Handed Cat Challenge. It commenced as instantaneously as it was conceived, and lasted for more rounds than seems appropriate. And yet, for all of our efforts, we never really got an impartial verdict on who actually won this thing. So the only responsible thing to do was to scan the drawings, color them digitally, and then create the elaborate post you are now reading.
So if you are one of the two or three people who read this blog, you can vote on your favorite drawings and help settle this issue once and for all. Doesn’t that sound fun? It does, right? Where is everyone going?
The rules: Drink wine, and then, using the left hand, draw cats.
The players: Me (Chad) and my wife (Quinn).
A Simple Cat, Any Style
Cat on Rollerskates
But wait… Let’s get a closer look at Quinn’s drawing.
Oh dear god!
Cat and Fishbowl
You can see just how wildly creative we are by this point.
Puss in Boots
A Cat Riding an Iguana
A mermaid, but a cat. A mer-cat.
“A Kitty Ascending Mt. Olympus”
It looks like the wine has kicked in by now, if it wasn’t apparent before.
And for the last subject of the competition…
Neither of us remembers what this one was supposed to be.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand…. That’s it! Did you think to count up the totals yourself? Because that’s probably the best way to find out who the winner is.
Or I will just post the results later. Please subscribe to my blog, or save a link, or just leave a tab open for a week or more and then hit refresh to learn whatever the final score is.
And remember: Friends always let friends draw drunk. Unless they’re ruining something nice that they drew earlier. Then you should always not let friends draw drunk. Unless they are purposefully drunk because they are an artist who draws real well, but then gets drunk and ruins his own art because… that’s his thing, in which case there are quite a few more rules to be aware of. I will be sure to publish those at a later date.
UPDATE: As of August 14th, 2015, Quinn is the winner by one round. But then, it is worth mentioning, she won most of those rounds by a wide margin, statistically speaking. Congrats to the victor! Let that be a lesson to all the other bloggers out there who think they are the best at drinking and then drawing cats with their wrong hand. There is an established champion out there now.
Thanks to all of you who participate in the voting! You have earned yourselves either an adult beverage, or a cat. Whichever is more convenient.
