Curiosity may not always kill the cat, but it can certainly “frame” it. This seems to be the mantra of this Japanese artist Fujita Satomi, who makes felt wool cat frames, where cats are immortalized with their head keenly popping out of the frame. In a way, we can finally see what the bottom of the box sees when cats stick their head in it.
And it’s not only that. The way each cat is made and framed gives each and every one of them a unique expression, mood, and setting. In some cases, even cat posteriors were framed. Any type of cat you can imagine, she’s done it. Tabbies, Siamese, heterochromatic, hybrids, cat pairs—the variations are as endless as there are cats in the world.
Even though her works are purrfect, her media purresence is somewhat minimal; one could even argue she’s still undiscovered. Hop on before the hype train leaves and follow her social media, so she gets the recognition she deserves! If that were the case, then you could say that you appreciated these brilliant works of art before they were cool and were hung on every cat lover’s wall.#2
Fascinated by music, movies and sitcoms, I’m passionate about social media and can’t live without the internet, especially for all the cute dog and cat pictures out there. I wish the day had about 40 hours to be able to do everything I want. Read more »
I’m Lim Heng Swee, an illustrator based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. My mantra is “Doodling a Smile” which aims to make people smile more in their daily life through my art. Recently, I started to explore minimal landscape art and found that the curves and shapes of the land have a lot of similarities with the curve and shape of the cat. I tried to blend the two elements together and the result is surprisingly great. It’s like the surreal view you can see if you landed into a cat planet which is super cool! I have spent 20 days to create 20 illustrations for this series, hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I am creating them. Cheers.
Rachel Lev is a French artist and illustrator who creates funny and relatable illustrations about her life that deal with self-esteem and body image issues many other girls face. “Inspired by the life of young women, these illustrations depict the self-destructive side of our mind, but with humor, colors, softness and irony,” says the artist. “The more twisted our mind is, the more funny the illustrations are!”
Rachel says that to her, body positivity is a mantra and her work encourages self-love and and women empowerment.”We should all laugh at our small problems, whether they’re big or small, because we all have the same ones,” says the artist.
“Girls! Let’s laugh together at our terrible body image issues, fears, and overthinking problems. “Too fat, too thin, too round, too flat, too much pizza, not enough yoga,” we are all perfect and beautiful, and let’s try to leave it at that!” says Rachel. Check out her illustrations in the gallery below!
One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
