2024 is Feline Good

2024 is Feline Good


Happy belated New Year. I have had a very slow start to 2024 after a bout of Covid but am gently easing my way back to full creative capacity. Are you a resolution or goal setter? I definitely like to have a few goals set out and for the start of this year mine is to make more art and share the process with you. 

I have a million new ideas for cards and wrap and am keen to expand my range of partyware this year. I currently sell some of my older designs on Zazzle but would love to get more stock on my website.

So here is the process, I started by sketching out a few ideas in my sketchbook and I really loved this idea of a cat birthday party. I had a strong urge to draw Sphynx cats as they have amazing eyes and ears but they didn't look very festive. I came up with a sort of hybrid shape and added a homemade, glitter texture to accentuate the eyes and ears and add details. I created 4 cats, each with their own little personality. The colour palette is inspired by a pair of Bermuda shorts that my mum made me in the 80s.

I'm calling the finished design 'Party Cats' (obviously!) A bright and fun design featuring furry party enthusiasts, decked out in their finest party hats, ready to bring a smile to your face! I have so far created a Birthday card and matching wrap and I hope to have this collection up on my website very soon.
