I drew our two cats in pencil and then decided to make them cool cats :)

I outlined the picture in fineliners before using coloured pencils on it.

Here’s a poem I wrote about them. Mitch is the hairy one who leaves fluff all over the carpets.

MITCH AND MAO

We are two little pussycats,
Our names are Mitch and Mao,
We’re really rather haughty;
In our presence you must bow.

Our humans truly love us,
They cater to our needs.
We humour them with mewings
And purr when we get feeds.

We sleep upon their duvets
And scratch upon their door
And one of us leaves lots of fluff
Upon their nice clean floor.

We sew not, neither do we spin,
We sleep and eat and poo
And once week, if in the mood,
We catch a mouse or two.

Dave Edwards – 2009

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Ohhhhhhhh Fantastic Groovy Felines- lovely !! x

  • Otherwise known as the Odd Couple :) Mao is the lazy one and Mitch is the mad one. Mao will sit on my shoulders and sleep on our bed. Mitch has a mad half hour when he will fly around the house like a demon possessed. We love them both.

    Dave, this is……. well I’m at a loss for words……. Inigmatic, that’s it, I think. This is really a great piece of work…and the poem is too cute. Did you write that poem? You have a a very imaginative psyche to do work like this .You need to write children’s books and illustrate them with your fantastic art.
