My History With Cats | Why I Draw Cats

The following cat drawing series inspired by fashion and different cultures. The collection of art works or whimsical line illustrations created with simple cats faces.

I was a child in Haiti growing up when I got my first pet. The first pet that I had was a cat. I remember having my childhood in Haiti, that sometimes we would have anywhere from 3 to 5 cats in the house at a time. The little faces of the cats would often melt my heart.

It's been years since I've actually had a pet of my own, and since then I've long hope to one day have a cat as a pet again. As an artist over the years I have created many illustrations of cats.

Although I created the drawings I never truly made anything complete, most of the drawings of the cats that I created were sketches.

As I am finding my persona and creating a wide body of work as an artist, I understand what I need to create. This series of simple line work and cute cat artworks were inspired by a whimsical idea.

I've produced the most drawings I've ever done in a year in 2017. The artworks usually take 2-4 hours each and in 2017, I produced over 200 complete artworks.

"Seven Cats In Paris" - The First Cat Art Piece

The first piece from my creation of the  cat artwork series is called "seven cats in Paris". Cats are a popular pet in France. I would say they are popular in Europe in general.

Growing up I remember one of my favorite cartoons was Tom and Jerry. Another favorite cat animation of mine was The Aristocats the musical. I didn't give much thought into creating this first artwork because it just seems so natural that cats in France made sense. This drawing was the first of the series incorporating seven cats.

Cats have been around for thousands of years. The feline has been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 2800 B.C. Cats are even popular in traditional Chinese ink paintings. Cats are often referred to as emperor pets and pets of royalty.

Characteristics of the cat often suggested being narcissist as a negative trait. When I first moved to the United States I am learned about people being cat person's and dog persons. I can recall even in psychology they would mention people either have a cat or dog persona, which I thought was strange. After all, we are human beings.

It is said that dogs are man's best friend and the most humble out of the creatures. This often leaves the cat out of the picture. Although, I will say I don't think the cats care very much. 

Cats and Cultures

Cats prefer to be adored. In some cultures cats are worshiped. There are also a wide amount of superstitions surrounding the cat. The cat is often referred to as a mystical and magical creature.

In a National Geographic article I read they mention that cats were so adored that if someone killed them in Egypt they we sometimes sentenced to death.

Combining the cats with fashion I also included a designer shape purse in the art piece. If you visited Kenalsworld before you can tell that I enjoyed creating fashion illustrations. 

I often create fashion illustrations to express creative ideas that I have for some clothing. I am not a fashion designer or fashion illustrator, but I do have a passion for fashion. As an artist I feel like my interpretation and expression make my point of view unique.

The Cat Drawing's Elements

This piece of the cat artworks is an extension of this passion of mine. This was the first drawing from the seven cats series, and in the piece I also included are the elements like a snail and an origami drawing.

In the drawing you can also see a plane with a small cat in the window and of course I could not forget the addition of the Eiffel tower with the cat beneath it. 

My Goal With The Cat Art Series

With the drawings I wanted to produce a series of cat artworks that almost mimic a puzzle in a way. I wanted the cat art collection to be like an I Spy game for viewers.

The illustrations of cats you are going to see are drawn in different scales. I purposely draw the cats at different angles and in ways that make them a bit challenging to see and locate.

The first few cat illustrations feature seven different cats within the artworks. Originally the drawings were created using an ink pen on Bristol board paper. Following the creation of the drawings I later imported the artwork into Adobe Photoshop to digitally color them.

"Seven Cats In Tokyo" - The Second Cat Illustration

Tokyo is one of the most exotic Asian cities in the world. Is diversity and technology and fashion have influenced the world. I never realized that I would one day want to visit Tokyo Japan.

Aside from their Skytree tower, cherry blossom trees in the spring, and countless other attractions Tokyo is one of the most fascinating cities in the world. There are so many interesting facts about Tokyo I discovered after reading this post by Factinate.

Tokyo is on my bucket list to visit before I leave this earth. This piece from the cat illustration series was inspired by some subtle elements of Japanese culture.

I Dream Of Japan

I have had dreams about Japan as if I was there and the olden days. Asian culture has always been a fascination of mine. A few years ago I began learning Korean and Mandarin.

Japan's culture itself has always been fascinating to me. If there is still time maybe one day I will start to learn the native language of Japan.

Inspiration From Japanese Anime

I have not much experience drawing cartoons. Yet, somehow I managed to create these very simple cute cat artworks. When I was in middle school I use to draw Dragonball Z characters a lot.

I grew up watching a lot of anime produced from Japan. One of my favorite anime films is Akira. Another Japanese animation show I enjoyed dearly was Detective Conan and Yuyu Hakusho. Sometimes I will go to Hulu to watch an episode or two while I work on artwork.

The animation style overall when they create their characters is very distinctive. The simple cat drawings sort of embody and was created to represent a culture was the simplest elements possible.

Some of the other elements in the drawing are the Ying and Yang symbol, the Hokusai waves, and cherry blossoms. The remainder of the artwork was composed with a fluid motion direction in mind.
