I wasn’t happy with the initial kitties I did in early thumbnails, so I did some variations (below) before I settled on the final feline. I struggled with two ideas here: 1) a hissing cat, and 2) something that resembled the shape of a shower cap. It felt like one had to be sacrificed a bit for the good of the joke. I let the hissing cat win here, even though it meant standing him up more in an arched shape. This actually made it easier to show his nails digging into the man’s scalp. I did these sketches on different scraps of tracing paper, then compiled them on one page to compare and contrast.
