The cat

The cat - student project

I have a cat called Checkers, and she is a constant source of happiness. I found some pictures of her in interesting positions - I particularly like the stretch and the one looking up to my hand.

Here's my collage of inspiration photos:

I actually went off on a tangent at this point and created some digital art from one of these pictures, which led me to start creating a series of them called "Miss Kitty". (You can see the collection on RedBubble if you're interested).

In the end I had to create something for this class so here is my final piece: "The Cheating Cheetah".
