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. =)

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

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

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.
