An Ode to Kitties

I love cats. Sure I love rabbits and bears too, but cats are my favorite as I've never had a pet bunny or bear. Kitties have inspired a few of my illustrations, whether it's their physical characteristics or their actual antics and personalities. Here are a few of my designs inspired by my feline friends.

Gray Tabbies appear frequently in my art as I've owned 3. My first, Pussy Cat (I know boring name - what can I say- accept I was a kid) was an elegant silver gray persian.  My 2nd, Gracie was the cat that comforted me during my teen years. Walked me to the bus stop and met me at the bus stop for the walk home. My 3rd, Smokie, is a big mush that loves to eat. He always reminds me to take a lunch break.

This one's inspired by  Bok Choy. I tried to capture her absolute adorableness and brilliant turquoise blue eyes.  

I never had an all black cat but I once knew a sweetie named Midnight Baby. I did have a black and white, named Panda Bear who was extremely smart but a bit aloof.

As you can see cats are a favorite subject of mine. PURRfect for every season whether alone or with other animal friends. 

Please click on the above images to see them in detail and or to purchase them. All the above cat cards were selected from GCUniverse.com/dianascards.

Have a MEOWY day!
