Sparc Rug

Here’s a rug of my kitty, Sparc. I designed this as a companion piece to my Scuzzy rug; I used the same colours but flipped the gradient. I think Sparc’s white spots turned out really striking.

PBT Portrait

Nothing super deep about this one. I wanted to practice painting white, and then I was playing with blooms in the background. I wonder if white animals would be better without the outlines. They seem to flatten the image a lot, but I still enjoy the marks and structure. Guess it’s something to keep poking at to see what sticks.

Ace the Cat Rug

Here’s a rug of my in-laws’ kitty, Ace. The colours look a bit darker and richer in person, but hopefully you can see the details well enough in this photo. It was really fun designing a rug in my cartoony style; trying to fit certain dimensions was an interesting challenge.

I’m now accepting commissions for custom rugs! If you’re interested, please check out these listings for pricing and info:

Maulkin Rainbow Rug

Here’s the rug I created just before my Scuzzy cat rug: Rainbow Maulkin! I had so much fun playing with this rug! It was my first try fading between colours, and I think it looks really fun. I feel like it captures Maulkin’s goofy personality really well. My camera had some issues picking up the purple, but it’s actually a nice royal purple beside the royal blue.

September Sticker Pack

To absolutely no one’s surprise, I had an absolute blast drawing kitties in clothes. So I ended up with an extra sticker design this month! The two orange tabbies are based on my kitties, Scuzzy and Sparc. (Which miiiiight be why they’re the only two kitties being super sassy.) 

Anywho, because there’s an extra kitty design, anyone who gets physical rewards on my Patreon this month will get an extra, jumbo kitty of their choosing (unless you’re an Uber, in which case you’ll just get them all. :P).

Jack

This handsome little guy is Jack, the JRT. He was commissioned as a birthday surprise for his mum back in July. I played with edges a lot while painting this guy, and I’m pretty pleased with how some of the fur texture turned out.

Rolling Scuzzy Cat + Commissions Update

I painted this little Scuzzy cat I think late last month? Just after the rosy maple moth painting. I really enjoyed painting a more detailed subject in this style! Plus you know I’m all about painting cats. This little guy is available as a sticker on my Etsy shop.

Commissions update: Sorry it’s taking me forever to open up custom pet portrait orders. I keep running into health problems one after another. (Chronic illness life, yo.) I probably won’t be able to take custom work until August, but I’ll keep you all posted. Thank you so much for your patience!

Lemon

This gorgeous girl is Lemon. Her person gave me a very free hand when painting her, and I have to say, I absolutely love how she turned out! A print of this painting will be displayed at Klub Khrome here in Fredericton as part of a Downtown Fredericton instillation of local artists.
