Cats That Sew, Cats That Swim


Illustrator Ella Goodwin creates pretty cat illustrations with a little bit of cheek to them! From her "crafty cats, to those who like to take a dip dressed in the most elegant of bathing costumes," this talented artist is wonderful at giving her fabulous felines beautiful little world's of their own.

I love the "Underwater Feline Fatale Collection," especially "Octini" (above). I can just imagine Priscilla wearing that swimsuit to cover up her extra "bits"!


Goodwin has also created a darling trio of prints based on a character named Percy. In addition to the "Catsuit" print below, the set also includes "Moon Bubbles" and "Percy's Party," which I think would make an adorable addition to a child's room!


When I asked Ella if she had any cats of her own that she drew inspiration from, she said, "Yes indeed I have two cats, Chewbacca and Tiger. They're huge, fluffy big owl eyed creatures. You can't see quite how ridiculously raccoon tailed from these pics, but I attached a couple anyway (They're Norwegian Forest cats, I'm told)."
