Catwoman the cat lady by caanantheartboy Catwoman the cat lady by caanantheartboy
WOW, a daily deviation! I'm totally floored by the faves and comments on this piece. It's amazing!

I think I saw someone suggest I name all the cats so - don't read the next paragraph if you'd still like to play the guessing game!

Behind the couch: Krazy Kat, Azrael (Smurfs), Bill the Cat, Felix, MAD Cat (with a Hello Kitty doll), Top Cat and Snowball II. On (and above) the couch: Streaky (who is orange, yes. My bad!) Mooch (Mutts), Stimpy, Mr Kat (Kid vs Kat), Sylvester, Puss in Boots, Figaro. The rest: Tom, Simon's Cat, Nermal, Garfield, Penelope, O'Malley, Marie (I wasn't gonna do ALL the Aristocats!), Horse (Footrot Flats), the Cheshire Cat, and Bucky and Scratchy behind Batman. The posters are That Darn Cat and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. (I also could have done The Cat from Outer Space, Le Chat Noir, and many others. Space restrictions!) The framed 'cat man' is Blacksad. The record is of course Josie and the Pussycats and the book, which has become illegible from the scanning, is Jennie, by Paul Gallico. (I believe it may be called 'The Abandoned' in the US?) It's about a girl who turns in to a cat. My dad read it to me and my brother when we were kids.

It's cats only, so there's no tigers! (Hobbes, Tigger, etc... OUT.) ;)

I avoided humanoid cats (except that Blacksad pic) and cats of a more adult nature. (Fritz. Fat Freddy's Cat. Etc.)

Both Eek and Heathcliff were on my list, but ultimately left off 'cos of space. I also left off others who came from the same 'world' to keep the variety up. So there's only two Aristocats out of many, and indeed other Disney cats were left out because of that (I love Oliver and Co.) Also with Sylvester and Penelope there was no need for Pussyfoot. Or even Furrball (Sylvester's Tiny Toons counterpart.) I probably could have put in Rita though (from Animaniacs.) It also meant no Arlene, since Garfield and Nermal were enough. Also there's nothing from anime or manga because I don't really watch/read much of it and this was meant to be an amalgam of stuff I grew up with and/or still read/watch, and not a comprehensive list. (Although I really wanted to scatter around some Samurai Pizza Cat toys but I don't think I could have achieved that in enough detail for people to get it straight away.)

Oh, and I was aiming for just cartoons and comics which is why no Cat in the Hat. Besides falling in to the humanoid category, it's also a children's book. (Maybe I should have put it on the coffee table too!)

I hope that answers some or all of the questions I've been seeing! I'm preparing to drive to Vancouver tomorrow for the Fan Expo this weekend so I haven't gotten to the comments, but I will! Thank you all for leaving them, and looking, and loving cats! In all their shapes and sizes. :)

--

This was a commission I did for Fan Expo Toronto last year. I finally got it coloured a few weeks ago. Can you name them all? (Given that I am an Aussie in Canada, there's two in there that only an Aussie (or Kiwi) or a Canadian would probably get, respectively.) ;)

Catwoman the cat lady by ~caanantheartboy is definitely a clever and funny with so many wonderful characters in one artwork. Can you name them all? ( Suggested by RaspingHerWords and Featured by jcroxas )

What I see in this piece is a great gathering of famous feline characters and references with a hint of comedy by Batman. I enjoy the old comic strip appearance of it and the number of characters. I hope to see more great work from you, cheers.

Well nothing's going to be added because 1) the original is plain old pen and paper 2) I don't own the original any more and 3) I don't know what that is. ;)

But thanks! There are plenty of omissions but I think I got a decent amount in. I guess it will never be the Ultimate Cartoon Cat mash-up I intended it to be.

Catwoman would be the best at keeping happy, well fed, content kitties.

Ha, saw this linked on io9 and thought "There's no way that could be Horse!" Nice one!

Bats better watch himself, Horse is probably the one cat who could tear him to shreds...

Awesome, I recognized most of these right off the bat! *rimshot* Bonus points for using a mix of oldschool and newer characters.

Space limitations aside, you could've done Fat Cat from Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers too.

Oo, Fat Cat. Good one.

On a related note, I've wanted to do an ultimate mouse mash-up, or I guess... rodent mash-up, for some time too, with Chip and Dale, the Rescuers, Danger Mouse, Mighty Mouse, etc.

That'd be awesome too, as would an ultimate dog mash-up, ie: Scooby, at least Dodger from Oliver and Co., Astro, Ren, Pluto, Spike (the bulldog from Tom and Jerry), Satchel, Marmaduke, the list goes on...

I actually once made a list of cartoon/comic dogs that I enjoyed (let alone merely exist) to make a dog version of this same idea, and ended up with over 50. It would take some paring down (or a very large piece of paper) to be able to do that one.

Is that from The Amazing World of Gumball? I've tried to watch it, but I just can't. Similarly, Adventure Time. I feel like there's something about modern cartoons I'm missing. They've left me behind.

Yeah, From "Amazing World of Gumball". I agree with you with modern American animation. What I like about Gumball, Id say its borderline kids show. I have to say the writers are pretty imaginable. The visuals is a mix of hand drawn, CGI, real life videos and stills. I think the Japanese got the Americans beat when it comes to modern animation. Most people might think of Dragon Ball z or Yug I Oh, Or however its spelled. But there's some fantastic anime, with really good story's.
