Le chat doré

Le chat doré - student project

Another fantastic class by Ira! 

I especially loved it as art nouveau is one of my favorite art movements and it was amazing to learn more about the artists who pioneered it. 

For the project I took inspiration from Alphonse Mucha for radiating design, Klimt for vibrance, Théophile Steinlen's poster and my cat for subject inspiration.

Initially I wanted to draw her looking up in a sea of cat nip plants but later preferred the flowing lines instead. I wanted to make it look a bit like an album cover.
