I celebrated Canada Day with cats so it only seems right to do the same for one of America’s big holidays. And who better than the captain of America? Well, the guy who calls himself that anyway!
I’ve well and truly been sucked in to the morbidly beautiful world of recent PS3 game The Last Of Us. I can’t rave enough about how good the character acting and voice work is. And as for a feeling of empathy, this game has it by the bucket load! So to show my appreciation, I drew some fan art of Joel and Ellie or rather me and Tali dressed as Joel and Ellie.
Here’s another illustration from this quarter’s The Cat magazine about a young girl who fashioned a makeshift ramp for her new kittens to be able to climb up onto her bed. Super cute idea!
Right about now, those who regularly get The Cat magazine should be receiving their copies through the post and in it will be the illustration you see above. Well, eventually see after it’s all come together! Illustrating this piece was ace and perfect to show the process I went through. I’m rather fond of making process posts now!
If you would like a copy of The Cat magazine, details can be found here.
Dress up request: I love your Comics and really would like to see you and Tali as Peanuts Characters. Oh, and here’s a cat for you: =°ω°= byizibizispider
First off, thanks for the cat! I have so many fond memories of watching Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang that your suggestion was the first I wanted to tackle after an absence of drawing dress up requests. Great choice!
Dress up request: I may have to request a Mordecai & Rigby (Regular Show) version of you and Tali! by Emmeline Pidgen (@emmelinedraws)
An excellent suggestion! Alongside Gravity Falls and Adventure Time, Regular Show is one of those kids’ TV programmes that I’m not ashamed of saying I watch. Come to think of it, I’,m not ashamed of saying I watch any kids’ TV show. Or film. Or comic. Wait… am I still a kid?!
Dress up request: This may have already been done (I hope not), but could you please draw yourself & Tali as if you were Sailor Moon characters? Thank you! ^_^ byivegotathingforgoalies
I am still making my way through the dress up requests that I receive even if it’s taking me a lot longer than originally expected so apologies for the delay! When doing this Sailor Moon piece, not being a viewer of the show I had to Google ‘Sailor Moon men’ to see who I could be drawn as. There were a ton of dudes dressed as the girls so I figured I had no choice really…
I’ve been doing a lot more digital illustration recently so thought I’d record from the (almost) start to completion. The image was for an article in Cats Protection’s The Cat magazine about the importance of microchipping. Apologies for the slightly dodgy recording but I think the screen capture was set to zoom or something.
Today, February 12, sees three noteworthy events all rolled into one day. Here in the UK it’s Shrove Tuesday or Pancake day as it’s also known and in the US you guys have Abraham Lincoln’s birthday coupled with Mardi Gras. So, naturally, I give you myself and Tali sporting Lincoln’s trademark hat and beard, with me flashing for beads and Tali tossing a pancake. What else could I have drawn?
Dress up request: Hello! I love your animations and drawings. They remind me so much of my own cats. :) This may sound like a stupid suggestion, but can you draw yourself as if you were a character in a Final Fantasy game? by Anonymous
I know it comes as a shock to some people but out of all the Final Fantasy games I’ve not actually played VII. However, I used to walk to and from college with a mate who loved the game and would tell me everything - and I mean everything - about his play through so I experienced pretty much all of VII anyway and know how highly it’s regarded in the seires, hence choosing the lead characters from for this dress up request. Seeing as Tali is always the hero in these requests, she had to be Cloud and, well, I guess I had to be Aerith…
You know when a cat starts to meow then half way through it turns into a yawn? ISN’T IT ADORABLE?!
The first work-related illustration I drew in 2013 was a tiled background as part of a larger project for Cats Protection. It’s not going to be used in this state so not to let this go to waste, you’re welcome to download (link below) and use at your leisure. But if you do then please consider making a small donation to CP via this link as it was drawn for them in the first place.
It’s true, whenever I think of Tali and what has kept her busy throughout the year all that pops into mind is her sleeping. Oh, to be a cat huh?
Happy New Year!
Remember that animation I’ve been working on and mentioning on Twitter for a few weeks now? Well this is it, the Cats Protection Christmas eCard. The only request was for it to feature a black cat but other than that I had an open brief - and about three weeks to do it in between other projects.
It’s felt like a long time coming but The Hobbit is finally out! I have my ticket booked and am very much looking forward to seeing what Peter Jackson has done with the book – so much so that I requested myself to dress up Tali and I as two of the stars. And you know what? I quite like the whole bushy beard look.
