custom birthday kitties

When I get a request to make a custom pet, it usually is accompanied by a few images of the pet to be immortalized. On a recent project, I got a bunch of hilarious before and after shots--too good not to share with you.

The customer wanted a pair of birthday kitties for her husband. These pictures were sent to work with, apparently taken at the bigger kitty's birthday party. Wow...looks like one hell of a party! Did someone bake catnip in that cake?

I did my drawings....

And made the figures(with a few adjustments from the drawing)

And then was thrilled to get these photos in my mailbox a few days after shipping them off. I have been self-employed as an artist for the past 20 years, but there's always been a middle person between me and my customers. Etsy gives me the opportunity to "meet" so many people each week, and I love being a part of people's lives this way.
