Meet Gideon. His preferred human is the amazing illustrator, Tiffany England. She gave me permission to use a photo she posted on her Instagram feed of her cat. I fell in love with him! Love his eyes and the lighting in the reference. This piece is "naked"; no frame or matting.
He looks like trouble, a bit, in a good way. Those eyes keeping track of all the household comings and goings, never missing a beat. Or, if he’s like my cat, never missing a meal. He is, I hope, the start of a series I’m thinking about, “Companions.” It will be small renderings of fur-friends and possibly their preferred humans.
