Catillest – Cheshire Chat

cheshire-cat-450

Spurred by a suggestion from a friend, I decided to create my own illustration of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. I enjoyed creating clean, digital lines from my pencil sketch, and then adding some more ‘real’ texture from inks to colour it. This is also part of a body of work themed around cats, for an upcoming exhibition.

Cat Neligan

Catillest is the creative alias of Cat Neligan.

By day, I toil away producing websites, advertisement materials, brand design and even a bit of ye olde printed matter. At night, Catillest (my freelance alias) takes over and unleashes her illustrative skills on the likes of t-shirts, band merchandise, children’s books, zines… and then some. Uniting the two is a love for 1990’s Nickelodeon cartoons, the Golden Age of book illustration, Eastern European stop-motion, shoddily made animatronics and crunchy peanut butter.
