New Illustrations: A Cat and His Musical Journey
As both a cat and music lover, I couldn't resist bringing the two together in my latest series of illustrations. This set shows Bax, a feline music enthusiast, on a journey to pursue his greatest passion, becoming a musician. Of course, nothing ever goes exactly as planned, which Bax quickly finds out.
It's always so much fun working up various designs for the many characters that appear in stories. This one was no exception. My own cats quickly became unknowing models as I poured through the many sources of inspiration for the characters' designs. And yes, my cats were well paid for their modeling services in kitty treats and tuna.
If you have a hankering to see even more cats (and I know you do!), check out the illustration I did for the Cats in Hats exhibition now up in the D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts in Springfield, Massachusetts.
