By Design – Cat Illustration Collection



Back when I was still in art school, we had a project that explored creating images with different media/styles using the same animal. I of course went with a cat. To date, this is probably my best illustration collection and I love all of them turned out (sans the painted one, which I haven’t shown here cause it isn’t my best.) The pencil and ink works were my favorites. I still enjoy working in pencil more than other mediums, if I’m honest. I start all my design work in sketchbooks with a pencil before I move onto working in Illustrator on my computer. I just have to put my ideas to paper before I work on a screen, I don’t know why, maybe I’m just a bit old fashioned.
