Beautiful Bella

Bella by Adam Hanson (Click image to enlarge)

Remember when I did a post about Meowoodle back in March? Well, I still love the Tumblr dedicated to drawings, doodles and sketches by artists of their cats, and every so often a particular illustration tickles my fancy so much, I have to contact the artist to get the scoop on the real kitty behind the creation! One such recent find was this glamorous, hot pink retro kitty poster, inspired by an equally glam, fluffy cat named Bella.

The artist's muse

"Bella" is the work of Chicago-based designer and illustrator, Adam Hanson, and when asked to share the real-life inspiration behind his kitty creation, the friendly, cat loving artist couldn't be more excited.

Adam and Bella

Adam tells me that Bella is actually his girlfriend's cat (Hi Gini!), so therefore his by default, and that the pretty kitty loves "sleeping, cuddling, barking at pigeons, napping, relaxing, and exclusively only eats Fancy Feast (which she is hoping to model for one day)."

I don't know about you, but I think Bella would be the purrfect Fancy Feast spokescat, and hope her modeling dreams come true! If not, she's still sure to be the envy of cool cats everywhere for having such a fabulous portrait done in her honor!

Special thanks goes out to Adam and Gini for sharing their beautiful Bella with us! Make sure to stop by Adam's website and Facebook to check out more of his amazing work!
