About the Works for Gentleman Cat

The first piece is worked digitally, with a very detailed process, step by step. First he decided what colors to use, after which he chose what type of feline to be inspired by. The wisdom of felines is one of the qualities that seems most interesting to rescue. So imagine a mature-aged cat, inspired by your own grandfather, who was a wise person with a great sense of humor.

The second intervention in the piece Gentleman Cat is worked in a more fluid way. He simply tried to instinctively think about his childhood experiences with felines. Finally, he decides to carry out the intervention as a mirror between the two parties to have an agreement between them.
