Not the Chinese dictator, but our lovely cat Mao :-)

Here is the photo I took for reference – I am sure you’ll agree I didn’t just do a straight copy. The background is from my imagination by the way.

As this seems popular I have decided to offer cards of it for sale. I have also uploaded a better scan.

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.

    Very nice, I hope you take this as a compliment but it looks like a great cover for a childrens book, you just need a story to go with it. (Perhaps the writers could help ?)

    I was amazed that Craig said that. Craig – I sure do take that as a compliment – my ambition is to be a book illustrator, even though I am now 57 (it’s never too late to learn). Years ago, someone used a few of my local scenic pen and inks in a magazine (a small local one) and it made me wish I could illustrate books. Last week, an American friend of ours said that after seeing my Mao painting she’d like me to illustrate a book she is writing. I haven’t decided yet, as it seems a big thing to take on, but Craig has given me much food for thought …

    Go for it! I’d love to illustrate books and would jump at the chance :) Having said that I guess there would be a lot to take into consideration but it’s still wonderful and I think you well deserve having being asked, your illustrations are perfect for it.

    It’s just a project between friends and i don’t know if it will get anywhere, but it’s all experience, isn’t it.

    great style, spirit cat looking to the heavens or bad moggy watching yummy bird. Colours are great.

    Very nice work. I agree with the other commenters…I can see this on a cover of a children’s book as well.
