I was inspired by the works of Louis Wain. He's been drawing cats all his life, but eventually has gone mad, and died in mental hospital. His cats became more and more scary and turned to almost unreadable patterns in the end.

Thank you, iLKke! His creative development is both fascinating and scaring me at the same time. =)

This link should work

Yay! I'm not the only one digging Louis Wain! It must have been rather unpleasant for him, but I must say I thoroughly enjoy his schizophrenia :D

Awesome work on the pic, plus you get bonus points from me for such a great ref!

The hallucat link is not working, btw

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 3/5/2009 05:48

Very cunning!  Also, an interesting biography -- never known the guy before.


Delfos (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/4/2009 07:42

Really great!
And thanks for those links!

fano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/4/2009 05:10

Nice piece and the artistic background is great :D

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/4/2009 03:04

I loved the links and your interpretation.  Thanks for sharing both!

panya (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/4/2009 01:36

Tadashi: thank you. I thought about that, but decided it would be a mess. =)

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/3/2009 20:07

 Interesting, 5'd

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/3/2009 16:20

I like it. A good adoption of the original work(s).

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2009 15:43

O WOW trippy! This is amazing. I think it'd be even better if you somehow "tied" the two together, so it didn't have such an obvious seam down the middle. But even as is, that's great.

panya (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/3/2009 14:32

Thanks! I almost went nuts myself while pixeling it. 8)

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 3/3/2009 13:08
