Appreciation towards Laura Mckellar for providing the following description:

平面设计师和自由工作者Laura Mckellar的工作室位于澳大利亚墨尔本的中国城中,她养了两只猫咪 Max和Pippa。Laura Mckellar告诉gooood说她打小就有猫儿陪伴,而且她去到任何地方几乎都能碰见猫儿。在土耳其旅行的时候,她因为在街上画猫儿的草图还遭到围观。

猫咪草图是Laura Mckellar的个人项目,她受到Andy Warhol的猫画启发,用绘画墨水创作猫咪草图,然后再通过Instagram将这些暖心可爱的创作分享给世界,有很多喜欢宠物的人跟她联系,希望她为自己的宠物作画。这个项目同时也成为了解社交媒体的一个“实验”—–人通过网络与全世界取得了联系。

Laura Mckellar的猫咪草图在Instagram颇为火热,现在,她的Instagram几乎只放她自己的画作而不展示她的私人世界。

I have grown up with pet cats, and always seem to meet cats everywhere I go. I started painting cats while travelling in Turkey because they crowd the streets over there. My Cat Sketches are a personal project of mine. I am using it as a way to connect with people via Instagram, where I get a lot of requests for pet portraits. It’s an experiment of sorts, to understand how using social media you can connect with people all over the world, and be commissioned to do work for them using essentially a photo uploading app. Cats as a subject is extremely popular on Instagram and every day I am finding new accounts for people who document their cats. Now I am almost exclusively using it to showcase my painting and not my personal world.

As for cat paintings, I am inspired by Andy Warhol’s cat paintings. I use drawing ink for my paintings.

I paint my cats with drawing ink.

I am a qualified graphic designer living in Melbourne, Australia. I work as a freelancer from my studio in China Town. I have two of my own cats Max and Pippa.
