What Image Style Best Convey's a Cat's Mystique?
It was just the other day that I happened on this image of a cat reaching for a butterfly and in an instant found it absolutely charming. Given my ambivalence to both subject and style, this came as a surprise.
But, it dawned on me then, that when it comes to the graceful feline, a monochromatic illustration lends itself well to the animal's mystique. Probably with no other subject does a silhouette convey as much charisma. And there's no mistaking this is a very cute illustration to boot.
I decided therefore to do a little pussyfooting (so, sorry) around the net and see what kind of cat silhouettes I could find. Some of the illustrations had keyword issues that brought a few non-silhouettes into the mix, but below are the results. Some great images for sure.
