Yet another illustration-in-progress from the book I'm working on. Here the formerly greedy cat learns to savour simpler fare... a timely example for all of us who overindulged in Thanksgiving bounty yesterday!
Acrylic on text & maps on canvas, 9x12".
I haven't put the hidden cat in this one yet, so hold off on the search... but do click for a closer view.
For The Old Man and the Cat, by Anthony Holcroft, to be published in 2011 by Penguin NZ.
p.s. If this image seems curiously familiar, maybe you've seen this one-- the original Cricket illustration that started it all!
