Velvet Pussy

Behold, The Velvet Pussy!
The initial inspiration was found from my beer tear-off calendar that I got from good friends. Free translated it says: "The Irish and English mix their beers with all kinds of drinks and give it curious names. Red Witch is, by example, Guinness with Pernod, cider and berry juice. Velvet Pussy is Guinness with Port and Black Velvet is Guinness with Champagne. For the English, a Mother in Law, is an old with a bitter."
 Only the name, Velvet Pussy. I had to paint it, but first i had to taste it...
Frankly, give me my Guinness (Draught) just pure...just like my port. Personally I din't think the Velvet Pussy tasted that good. 
The velvet and port. It reminded me of the Patta x Parra Nike Air max 1 sneakers.

Hup, hup, hup....

Look at this. Barbapapa just transformed into a cat? No, it's not Bannakaffalatta, it,s Barbacatta.
In original language (French), Barbapapa speaks the magic words "Hup, hup, hup, barbatruc". In Dutch it's "Huub, huub, huub, Barbatruc". In english it is "Clickety Tick, Barba trick". My favorite Barbapapa? It's of course Barbabuille.

Improving Cheetahs

It's again a cheetah. I think I can't hide that I like this color combo. I want to make look better every time I make one. Of course the spot pattern is unique to every cheetah. I like the background to. It reminded me to a storm on Jupiter, hence the title of this painting. It also looks a bit like raspberry syrup in yoghurt. Yummy!

It's my second scientist cat, dedicated to Daniel Faraday. This silver cat looks covered by a copper cage of Faraday. The ultimate protection, as you can see in a question of the Dutch National Science Quiz of 2011. 
After the intro, the big show starts at 1'35". Note how this guy walks into Faraday's cage in a Faraday's suit.

Flower Power.

Sweet smelling cat does find a little lilly from the valley. Never underestimate the power of a black belt flower.

We are all ear

Alright, I was a little joking with the title. This cat is called Vincent. He's pretty artistic. Had a fight with another cat. That's how he lost his ear. 
The bridge is inspired by this painting of Vincent van Gogh. This bridge is near Arles and is officially called "Pont de Réginelle, but was locally known as "Pont de Langlois", named after the bridge keeper. In 1999 I have visited this bridge, while I was camping with Eva near Montpellier.

Wet on Wet

This must have been the first, or one of the first 10 x 10 cm cats I made. Both the background as the cat are made with quite  surplus of paint. Camouflage inspired on Nigo's Bugatti Veyron.
Although it is an attempt to make a camouflage pattern, it reminds me now more to strawbery/vanilla ice cream.

Knock on Wood.

I had plans to make "Holy Cat" icons from wood. Two colleagues were pretty enthusiast and were willing to help me. One colleague handed me over a little beechwood plank. The other colleague assisted me in cutting the plank into square pieces. It was possible to make 5 panels of approximately 10 x 10 cm (one is actually 9 x 9 cm).
A little rubbing with sand paper to smoothen the edges and a little hole on the back, so it can be hung on a nail on the wall.
Now there is now way back...

Da Bomb!

"I didn't bomb that wall!"... Well, you are at least an eye witness, You've got yellow spray paint all over your blue fur. "But I don't even have fingers"... "Bomb da Katt" has been derived obviously from Tim Simenon's Bomb da Bass. "Beat Diss!"
