Cat in Tree

I tend to overuse the straight-on angle when drawing, maybe due to subconsciously wanting to be like Norman Rockwell. Once in a while I remind myself that the camara angle of the illustration should be dictated by the subject and the mood. I got a more interesting illustration here than usual.
There's always much to be said about focal point and not confusing the observer, but I like to try to make the eye move around when I can. It can be a fun challenge to manipulate the eye. Here, I think the female firefighter is the focus of attention, but that could change depending on how color is used.
