Custom White Persian Cat Portrait Mug

Last December, I had the pleasure of drawing Charlotte the White Persian cat. When asked about her personality, her mama's friend Sarah called her a very regal and prissy cat who loves long naps. Sounds good to me, I need a long nap.

Sarah also revealed that Charlotte has quite the brush collection. She has four brushes and chooses which brush she wants to be brushed with!

Have your kitty's portrait made on a mug or plate at my Etsy store.

Behind the scenes (please ignore my holiday crafting mess):

Why yes, those are penguins putting up a Christmas tree pajama pants.

Honey Bear actually isn't a bear at all - Honey Bear is a fluffy little pomeranian. He's one of the many pups (and kitties) I drew in December.

That's right. Cat lovers have spoken, their meows have been heard.

Some feline-centric fans saw my custom dog portrait coffee mugs and inquired on my plans to offer a custom cat portrait mugs. I expedited their request to prevent any fur warfare. Custom cat portrait mugs are now available on the kathyphantastic Etsy store.

My talented graphic designer friend and closeted crazy lady, Nathalie was kind enough to let me practice drawing cat mugs with her three cats.

Some of her kitties have Spanish names while others have English names. Mr. T was my favorite name, but Apple was the chosen one. I wonder if Apple is responsive to "manzana?"
