The Most Majestic Creatures in the Universe!

Updated: Feb 12, 2019


If you guys follow me on Instagram, which you should, then you've probably seen my Galaxy Cats. They're cute kitty faces filled with a vibrant, watercolor galaxy and my kids went crazy when they saw them.

They started as an idea I wrote down on my "Art Inspiration" list (it's a very long list) over a year ago. I didn't know what they were going to look like. All I knew was that I like to paint galaxies and I like cats and I wanted to merge the two together.

While shopping for birthday gifts for my daughter, I thought, why not make her something extra special? My daughter loves cats and bright colors so I decided to get started on the Galaxy Cat Project, or the GCP as I like to call it. Not really, I just made that up.

I started with a extra floofy long-hair, because, who doesn't love floofy, long-haired kitties? Oh, well. Those people are just weird.

It had been a long time since I had painted a watercolor galaxy and I was worried I'd be a little rusty. Luckily, galaxies aren't hard to paint and the first kitty came out fine.

The second kitty is our own Lightning. He's a piebald, orange and white domestic shorthair with the cutest little mustache and the sweetest little face in the world, my little kitty boo boo foo foo. Ahem... He's a cat with shorthair.

The third kitty is an exotic shorthair. I think these guys are soooo cute with their little flat faces. My kids kept asking if it was a bulldog. *sigh*

These guys will soon be available on merchandise, such as journals and stickers and as prints. I'll let you know when in my newsletter.

Oh, and I made my daughter a t-shirt for her birthday present and she absolutely loves it. ;)
