  1. Terrific selection!!! The snuggling mice and cat
    made me :-} It's great how each artist has their own distinctive take on the interplay. Tomek Bogacki's is very appealing and simple crayon blue cat with the sharp triangular claws sizzles with energy.
    Great blog!

  2. My choice is Carlos Marchiori. I love the pattern on the cat!

  3. Wow, so many great cat illustrations! Thanks for linking to me.
