It’s about time I showed more cat pictures because there are so many to choose from. Cats were the subject of the first post in the Close-ups series, back in 2009. This brown cat pin is over 30 years old. Read about my pins here. The baby leopards are from “Rana is Born”. The piece was the inspiration for Judy Richardson’s story, Come to my Party, which I illustrated in 1993.
This costumed cat is a detail from “On Halloween”, which is in my 1997 book You and Me: Poems of Friendship. The whole illustration is printed as a poster, which is available in my Etsy Shop.
This seated cat is from my 1999 book The Hollyhock Wall.
This kitty is part of the faux tile frieze in my kitchen. Read about that here.
And this cat topiary is from the verse “Molly My Sister and I” in my book Pocketful of Posies. Autographed copies, plus a poster are available in my Etsy Shop.
Thanks for the recap with pictures of your cats. I especially like the seated cat from the “Hollyhock Wall.”
You are so amazingly talented! I love to see your work. ❤
I love seeing all of the different kitties in one post, lost of wonderful pieces and characters.
I adore the brown cat with the green eyes from “The Hollyhock Wall,” which is my favorite of the many books of yours that I own. It is so fun to see how your work has evolved from the cat pin to that exquisite green-eyed cat.
