"It was lunchtime. I just finished lunch and drew a doodle of my 1 year old cat, Tibbles, and wondered how other illustrators with furry companies capture their cats personality on the page (or screen). So I started Meowoodle, to collect these different feline portraits."
So reads the "About" page for your new favorite Tumblr, Meowoodle, a "collection of drawings, doodles and sketches by designers and illustrators of their cats."
The very first post on the site was an illustration by Meowoodle creator, Richard Perez, of his two cats, Buffins and Tibbles (above). I asked Richard if he'd mind sharing a picture of their real life counterparts, and he was happy to oblige.
Richard says, "Here's a little info about the two, my girlfriend Jen and I got Buffins, a female orange tabby, from a woman who rescues and rehabilitates abandoned cats. About two years later we got her a little buddy to play and boss around. So we went to a San Francisco rescue shelter and adopted Tibbles, a stripy grey boy kitty. And we all live happily together in our little apartment, well apart from the occasional cat fight."
I think the idea behind the site is brilliant, and can honestly say I love each and every kitty portrait that's been featured so far. So what are you waiting for? Go check out Meowoodle today!
