Moon Cat

Moon Cat by Karen Gadient, 2015
Moon Cat. Happy Cat of the Moon. Vector Illustration.

This is the partner to Sun Cat, but I didn’t post her when I shared that illustration. With all this moony talk lately (and that big moon outside of my window last night), I figured it was a good time to let her loose.

Hope you’re having a great week so far!

Apologies if I’ve missed some of your comments here recently. WordPress hasn’t been emailing me all comments. It’s been random… some get sent to me and some don’t! Has this been happening to any of you lately?

It is with our passions as it is with fire and water; they are good servants, but bad masters. ― Roger L’Estrange, Aesop’s Fables, 1692

Plethora

Plethora by Karen Gadient, 2015

Plethora. Watercolor, gouache, pencil, and pastel with digital post work.

Created from three scans: one with watercolor and gouache on watercolor paper, another with pastel and pencils on charcoal paper, and a final sheet of gouache strokes on onion skin paper. Art experiment―and also a bit of therapeutic fun!

Happy Octopus

Happy Octopus by Karen Gadient, 2015

Happy Octopus.

Started off as a quirky colored pencil sketch that I thought was cute, and developed into a vector illustration. Happy little guy―makes me smile! Hope he passes a smile along to you too and that you’re having a good week so far.
