...loving you to fur-deep distraction...

Uploaded: April 03, 2008


I consider this to be a fabulous portrait of my own pet cat, Monkey. When I first met her all those years ago I thought she was the ugliest cat I'd ever seen. Many years later I could not think of feel more differently toward her if I tried. I feel this portrait does justice to how beautiful I believe this stupid, mental, crazy, mad and deeply addictive creature is.

Photoshop work: cropped, desaturated, history brush on eyes, work in layers and filter applied. Lot's of tweaking went into this one and I can't actaually remember everything I did :)
