Big Book of Cats: Kristen

November 21, 2012

The Big Book of Cats is a weekly illustration project. In 1998, I was 11 years old and decided to make a 200 page encyclopedia of anthropomorphic cat girls. I’ve made a vow to honor this horrific piece of literature and redraw every cat girl and post a new drawing along with the original for the internet’s amusement. Want to know more? Read my official introduction here and check out all the drawings so far here!

You’re welcome and I’m so so sorry.

I really like how Kristen is playing all sweet and demure in her daring black bustier top. Girl, don’t play. We see you’ve got a feisty side. Although, this was drawn at the height of the late 90s mid-driff obsession, so I guess it didn’t seem quite as daring to me at the time.

Present-day Kristen has sooo many followers on tumblr, you guys. I love her little side braid. What a quirky lady. :)

  • Oh my gosh, I love her fashion!!! I’d totally wear that outfit. <3 She's so cute. *flail*

      Right?! I’m definitely living vicariously through her a bit–I can’t seem to afford/find any good galaxy printed stuff, so I’ll dress my cat lady in one! :’)

    UM, can that skirt be in my life NOW PLEASE?! Love this one!!

  • Her outfit rocks, and is super sassy. I love the socks you added–they’re the perfect touch, with the little hearts. Cute!

  • So pretty drawing! Love her skirt and the socks!
