This cat is Pippin, the cat of my old and dear friend and repeated roommate Drew, both now long since deceased. Pippin was asleep in an empty terrarium when I took the photo that forms the basis of this image. I had originally made the digital art for this very stark in black and grey and white, several days prior to writing the post it would eventually accompany. That morning I was debating creating something new or using one of my as-yet-unposted pieces, and suddenly saw that stark image and immediately wanted to set it alight.
Realizing the colour variations possible for this as a result has given me the impetus to prep several for posting in my currently still minimalist account on RedBubble , where I think variations of this kitty could make for some highly enjoyable functional art. :)
