So many awesome people [friends, family, Beyonce] have birthdays this month! My friend Aja asked me to illustrate her fur family for her manfriend Michael as a birthday surprise. I had so much fun with this piece! They have two of the most adorable fluffy cats named Nuggets and Oscar that are impossibly laid back. Nuggets and Mike are best friends, despite the mean mugging shown here. Oscar is a sweet rescue kitty with a “chicken wing” foot. I was sure to include his goggles post eye surgery.
I’m quite happy with how this turned out, and even happier that it was well received and ready to hang in their home! Happy Birthday, Mike!
Ready to transfer the rough sketch!
Netflix and line work time! I’ve been on a documentary kick the last couple of weeks.
