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 can remember certain details about my motivations to draw some of the cat girls. Sometimes I remember a personality I wanted to convey or a type of person. For Allison, I distinctly remember that I had a classmate who had the palest, natural platinum blonde hair I’d ever seen and I was infatuated. I drew Allison with platinum hair in mind and saw her in pale blues. An icy princess!
2013 Allison has a cute, schoolgirl look. Appropriate for my original inspiration, I guess. She’s wearing a bag from Mochi Beaucoup that I’ve had my eyes on for ages. I like to live vicariously through my cat girls’ sartorial choices sometimes!
