The Magical Cat

Howdy Howdy!

Here is an illustration I just finished last weekend. It was made to accompany a story by Gianni Rodari called El Gato Viajero (The Traveling Cat). The Traveling Cat is a fun yarn about a dapper cat that takes a train ride. Accompanying the story are several different endings that the viewer may choose from; my illustration shows the cat as a magician in disguise.

I would like to say a big thank you to Elisa Wikey for giving me the idea of using the geometric shapes as "magic" in the image. It was really a brilliant idea to wrap the shapes around the edges as a subtle border. So thank you very much, Elisa!
