I was watching Cats 101 which is a great show all about cats on Animal Planet. This week they featured an artist and as soon as I saw her work I knew I had to share it with you! You can check out the interview with her here.

I just love the way she paints the cats and what they get up to. They are so much fun! You can check out more of her work here

Simon’s Cat

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011


I don’t think there’s anyone out there who hasn’t come across Simon’s Cat.
I still remember seeing the first video he did and I was totally in love with his style and watched it many many times. I think it’s still my favourite of them all.

I got his first book as soon as it came out and I might have to treat myself to the more recent one. Perfect coffee table book for cat lovers!

If you haven’t already, head on over to the Simon’s Cat Website and check out the films section. They are all awesome and definately worth a watch.

How Cats Shrink

Today I want to share with you the illustrator of one of my favourite cat cartoon books, Jeffery Brown. I bought his Cat Getting Out of a Bag and Other Observations
book as a birthday present to myself a couple of years ago, it’s brilliant. I love the simple style and the classic cat antics in the comics. He has since published another great book, Cats Are Weird: And More Observations which I have as well and both of them are on my shelf of favourite cat books. I might have to treat myself to Cutest Sneeze in the World Postcard Box because it’s just so adorable! If you’re looking for a gift for a cat lover or you want to treat yourself to something cute and funny I definately recommend these books.


Doctor Cat

I’ve only recently come across Doctor Cat, he’s brilliant. There’s a new installment every Friday on his website

Gemma Correll

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for me to share with you another artist whose work I love. This week it’s Gemma Correll.
Obsession zine : Cats

Gemma’s work is just wonderful. She has a great sense of humour and likes cats! Her work isn’t all cats though, lots of it is based on her awesome little pug Mr Pickles. You should definately check out her website

Cat Versus Human

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

I love Cat Versus Human.
Yasmine does wonderful drawings about life with her cats. It’s always nice to know that I’m not the only person totally crazy about cats! Her drawings have such character and she really sums up life as a cat slave.
