the latest additions to the Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art, nya!

For those here for the first time, Galleries 1-8 of The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art display images by Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-5 display images illustrations, photos and mixed - media imagery by other folks with their purrmissions, nya. Mike’s collaborative images with the other artists can be found throughout the mewseum, nya!

Some of the images in the mewseum are sexy, and some might depict artistic nudity, but most are tame, and none are porn, nya! On Catgirl Island's official web site, the most recent pics will be the lowermost row of the cropped widdle "thumbnail" - sized portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click upon those to see the uncropped full pics, nya.

Firstly we have Mike’s recently revised illustration Lizzy’s D&D character Linina, the 40th level Catgirl Paladin nya! This was originally drawn in 2001 with the pencil and pens, colored with Photoshop CS, and combined with Mike’s photo of the trees, nya!

Last month, he used Photoshop CC and the mouse to spurruce up the pic, and added the text from her character info sheet with the help of our October 2007 guest Pacozord, who updated the D&D character information from 1st edition Dungeon & Dragons to 5th edition Dungeon & Dragons terms, nya!

we are purroud to purrsent 2 new pics by Mike, who used Photoshop for fan art of Marvel Comics’s Mam’selle Hepzibah, the heroic feline / skunk girl of the Mephitisoid species from the planet Planet Tryl’sart in the integalactic Shi’ar Empire, nya! Created by artist Dave Cockrum and author Chris Claremont, Hepzibah first appurred in The Uncanny X-Men issue #107 in 1977, in which her team The Starjammers met the X-Men, nya!

She joined the X-Men years later, nya. She might be considered as the stepmom of brothers Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops, and Alex Summers a.k.a Havoc, because she is the mate of their dad Chris Summers a.k.a Corsair, nya! Thusly that might also make Hepzibah the stepmom of Jean Grey and Madeline Pryor, and the stepgrandmom of Alex Summers a.k.a Cable, and the stepgreatgrandmom of Hope Summers, nya!

Mike used Photoshop on the mac with the mouse for the fan art of DC Comics’s “Wildfire”, nya!

It was in the 30th century when his expurrimental purropulsion device malfunctioned and transformed him into the anti-energy entity who had to wear the containment suit to maintain the corpurreal human form, nya. He joined the Legion of Super-Heroes team to fight against the intergalactic villains, monsters ’n disasters, nya.

In Guest Gallery Two
