Today(tomorrow, really) marks the 1 year anniversary of my Big Book of Cats project! Woohoo! \o/
I feel really great to have made it to this point. I’ve gotten a bit off schedule a few times in the past couple of months, but besides that, I’ve been really staying on track and posting every week. Besides just sharing all the funny, weird shit I did as a kid, this illustration project was intended to make sure I keep drawing everyday and finish an illustration–even as small and simple as one of these guys–each week.
Ever since graduating college and getting full time jobs doing graphic design, my creative output has taken a bit of a dive. I resolved that 2013 would be different and I would get more serious about growing my illustration work, which is where my passion really lies. I’m happy to say that when I look through my file folders for artwork done in 2013, the amount far surpasses 2012(and 2011, too, tbh) already and we’re only 2/3rds through!
I was proud of myself for completing the original Big Book of Cats in 1998 and I’m determined to feel the same accomplishment when I finish it again in 2014! Or 2015. I haven’t really calculated my tentative finish date yet. Too sad to think about!
Do you recognize the lovely ladies in the GIF? Haha, I had way too much fun with that one. 8)
So far, I’ve shared 42 cat girl drawings! Isn’t that nuts? Here’s to the next 42! xo
