Curled up here we have a translucent blue kitty whose nap we’ve clearly interrupted.
Whether spirit, faerie, ghost, or illusion, this kitty definitely has an otherworldly aura about it that outstrips even the usual feline mystery. It’s got a halo of violet in its blue, and the markings start out a bit like your usual tabby before swirling off fancifully into spirals and nothingness.
What sort of cat do you suppose we have here, and will you be the one to adopt it into your family?
Above, you can see one little eye peering out like the only solid part of this cat’s form. Below, the cat is napping in its frame, waiting for a carrier to take it home.

Autumn winds are blowing and fire season is almost over, which means not only October, Halloween, and Pumpkin Spice, but Inktober! I’m doing one ink drawing per day all month, pulling from a number of prompt lists. This year I’m doing everything in the Artist’s Trading Card size of 3.5″x2.5″ and sticking to black and white with the occasional cheat of grey.

Santa Cat knows exactly what to do during the busy holiday season — sleep.
Rendered in gold-infused grey and red ink, and a softer grey, it takes just a few lines to suggest the shape of a sleeping cat that’s gotten into the Christmas decorations.
This would make a gorgeous holiday decoration, full of whimsy and peace, to bring out year after year.
Above, you can see where there’s a teeny tiny bit of sparkle hiding in the ink. Below, you can enjoy the kitty napping away in its frame, pretending not to acknowledge the pun in the title. Ahem.

Bear is a big, old dog and the third puppy to get his portrait done for Courtney! And to finish up the quartet we have her own cat, Alphie. We decided to draw him as a happy murder baby, despite being asleep in nearly all the photos she sent me. You can practically see his butt wiggle!
Doing caricatures of pets is an interesting exercise! I exaggerated Alphie’s ears and Bear’s big head, and made the body rounder for the kitty, but smaller for the big puppy.
Tails both have the requisite amount of floof, however.
My commissions queue is jam-packed right now, but if you’re interested in reserving a spot drop me a line!

Through the fantastic foliage, the tiger stalks its prey. Or that’s what this adventurous tabby cat is imagining. Colored-ink lines give a cartoonish appearance that’s meant to evoke a Disneyish feel (though Disney is usually a bit more coy about cat butt).
If you’ve ever met a cat, you know this is a very common view, however, and soon enough it becomes commonplace. The real question isn’t about the end of the cat facing us, but where the other end is headed off to and what it will find it its explorations.
Above, you can see the lovely details of ink lines and watercolor shading on the foreground foliage. Below, the kitty is in a frame, to be viewed as though through a cat door as it heads out on its adventure.
