I am a cat on the internet. Now you humans can adore me. ♠️
Watercolor on Aquarelle. This piece is incredibly close to my heart. It closely resembles the emotions that I was going through when I painted it. I tried to replicate the numbness and the restlessness that I felt in the eyes.
This is a totem I did of all the pets I have/had. I used Copic Multiliner SPs.
I have been participating in Lauren Hom’s #HOMwork challenges via Instagram. This weeks challenge was to draw the same letter 16 ways. I drew cats instead. I may come back to the whole lettering thing at some point!

The endangered Black-footed Tree Rat or Djintamoonga is a native found in the northern regions of Australia. One of the country’s largest rodents, they are threatened by local extinction due to the presence of invasive feral cats and habitat change.
This is the other half of Return of the Polar Bear, a drawing in my moleskine. It is after Pieter Bruegel the Elder, an artist from the 16th century. I began it as a way to try out his intricate use of line and hatching. The subject matter altered some along the way - his etching didn't have any animals, and of course mine had to be all about the animals. I also simplified. It turned out to be a wonderful lesson.
I did this piece with my 4 year old niece. She drew the caterpillar at the bottom. A star in the making!
Made in gouache and ink, "The Cat House," is a wonderful home ruled by cats.
Swanky cats was a commission I did recently. The image is A3 and was sooooo much fun to do!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, love is not pompous, it is not inflated,
it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NABRE)
Weird Astro-Cat with nice quote... (finally, something that makes sense)
A charcoal portrait of my cat, Rex. He didn't seem impressed.
Recently I have been very dedicated to studying the art of using Pen and Ink. These exercises are very difficult and time consuming so I might not be posting casual art as often as before. If anyone has any tips or advice on the lessons of Pen and Ink, do share!
6x6in, acrylic on canvas, completed in 3 days. No name, no identification, just a date. It's neither here nor there.
I have not posted or been on in a while, we had a bit of a rough time lately and so I have not had time to be on here or draw a lot. Here is fanart I did a very long time ago. I hope you all are doing better then I am! :)
Neal and his two friends - a cat named Vincent and a dog named Satchmo
A piece that incorporates some of my favorite things... Coffee, Cats, Pups & Puns!
A silly watercolor sketch, I know, but there's a lot tied to this little thing. There are so many bittersweet feelings lately. I tend to avoid putting a numerical value to time, I don't like the count-down aspect to things, especially knowing how obsessive I can be with that. It allows me to live in some semblance of ignorance (they say ignorance is pure bliss). There's a lot of tip-toeing around what I want to say and what I'm afraid to say, or even what I'd love to explore and embrace and simply afraid to. It's something I'm not used to. It's taken me quite a while to finally sit with certain things, or even acknowledge them, and it feels like there's so much more I'm now realizing. It's odd to be so frank to some and worried that others may find out. There's a lot of shifting again, goodbyes coming soon, complicated feelings and situations.
You Can’t See Me~
Painted this today in my sketchbook :) it was cold for the first time this morning so wanted to paint something autumnal.
First real art of the year. It took longer than I wanted but I love how it came out. Guess that's what happens when you put time into your projects - go figure. Just a little Copy Cat art from a beautiful, innocent, charming film - Ponyo. What's your favorite Studio Ghibli Film?
I'm doing a series of illustrations (one a week) combining my love of designer chairs and cats. This weeks chair is the famous Panton. The cat is called Anton ::)
For all the cat lovers and night owls of the world.

I've been re-reading the Harry Potter Series, and now am on a quest to do a small illustration for each of the books. This one is from "The Sorcerer's Stone" and features Mrs. Norris, my favorite evil cat.
Did you know that 94% of witches could have prevented injuries by stretching before cursing?
Ink and watercolor sketch of a scruffy cat.
Ren and Stimpy fan art - these two were my childhood favorite and influenced my art, as you can probably tell, ha ha. Thanks for the idea, @Rayedrgn :)
