“He is a strange cat,” Beth Van Hoesen shared in her book Creatures
, quoting Bugs’s adoring owner. Through two sittings, the San Francisco artist drew the cat in his favorite position, the sort of casual moment she would spend more than fifty years dutifully documenting. “Most of the time, Bugs sleeps upside down with his feet up in the air—like in the print.”
