Pete the Cat Drawing

A drawing of Pete the Cat, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

Pete the Cat is a fictional cartoon cat, created by American artist James Dean. The series started with four books illustrated by Dean and with text by Eric Litwin. Since then, James Dean and his wife Kimberly Dean have written and illustrated the series of books.

The first book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, is the story of a cat whose white shoes get mucked up by various substances he steps in, but “Pete never loses his cool.” Written as a song, its refrain is “I love my white shoes”, changing to “I love my red shoes”, “I love my blue shoes”, and “I love my brown shoes”. Then he steps in a bucket of water and the colors wash off, and they became wet, but still never loses his cool, he just sings his song.

Older students might notice that this tutorial includes a little perspective as Pete’s shoes that are closer are larger that those on his back feet. Younger artists can focus on just making the shoes match. As Pete would say, “It’s all good.”
