I love Edward Gorey, so when Knickertwist opened the Completely Ghastly Edward Gorey Swap, I could not resist!
My partner CDEeeek had mentioned cats in her questionnaire and as Gorey was very fond of his cats and drew them with
such personality, I decided I'd run with it.
My cats are hand drawn a la Gorey, and I did my best to imbue them with Gorey-esque attitude. It was fun to step into his world for a little while
and pay tribute to a great illustrator and storyteller!

You did an amazing job!  Definitely captured the  Gorey-esque ness.   Awesome!  I bet you partner is super thrilled!

Not sure how I missed this but it is so fun! Not familiar with Edward Gorey (other than hearing about this swap), but the characters I have seen are great. Smiley

I don't really care for cats, but I do love the cat house! Great job drawing like Gorey.

This is truly wonderful! I love the cats, the house, the 3D.
