Maneki Paw #2: "Conversation"

The second Maneki Paw piece is now complete. A tranquil pond shared by the Japanese Bobtail and his old friend, the giant Koi fish.

Here's a sneak peek at the next Maneki Paw Collection piece. It will feature the Japanese Bobtail, one of my favorite breeds and the most common cat found in Japan!

Maneki Paw Collection.

The Maneki Paw Collection revealed!
 I will be donating some of my illustrations to Cats Exclusive for the Dine & Donate event they hold during the year to benefit their cat rescue organization. I'm running a little behind on time, but "Family Tree" is one of many that will (hopefully) be auctioned off during the event. The pieces in Maneki Paw are inspired by my (almost irrational) love of cats, the folklore behind them, and will give the spotlight to many of our favorite feline breeds!

Like I've mentioned before, little by little I've been working on a few projects. One of them was giving this blog a "new look." Once I was satisfied with my new  title, I did some sketches and came up with this piece. Initially, the colors were horrible. They didn't match the mysterious atmosphere I was trying to convey. Eventually, it turned into this! ^___^ Yay!
