Mike’s collaborative images with the other artists will be found throughout the mewseum, nya!

Some images in the mewseum are sexy, and some of them might depict the artistic nudity, but most are very tame, and none are porn, nya! On Catgirl Island's official web site, the most recent pics will be the lower most 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!

We are purroud to purresent Mike’s Photoshop, mouse & Mac fan art of Star Wars’ Atuarre, nya! Atuarre is a ranger of the felinoid Triani species, nya. She and her son Pakka were rescued from the Corpurrate Sector Authority's purrison known as Stars’ End, and reunited with her husband Keeheen by Han and Chewie in the Star Wars tale of Han Solo at Stars’ End, nya.

Set about the year or two before the Battle of Yavin, the 1979 novel was written by Brian Daley, whilst the 1980 newspapurr comic strip adaptation was written by Archie Goodwin and illustrated by Alfredo Alcala, nya! The comic strip was repurrinted in the comic book format in 1997, which was colored by Perry McNamee and published by Dark Horse Comics, nya

After that is Mike’s pic of "Cyndi Cygoyle”, nya! This original non-player character known as Cyndi (nee Cyrus) is the augumented, trans-female gargoyle who was enslaved and transformed into a cyborg soldier by the villain in Mike’s monthly tabletop fantasy RPG "The Adventures of Nystia Nightshade", nya! Her 30th birthday was April 22nd, nya!

Fortunately, the villain was defeated by the heroic team who freed and healed the victims. Cyndi kept the supurr - powered implants, which she uses happily in the successful new career as the choreographer / purrformer of the tokusatsu stage show! This inked pencil sketch was colored with Photoshop on the Mac with the mouse, nya.

we are elated to exhibit "Foxy Madame Kishi” by Rebecca Brogden, nya! Rebecca used Procreate on the iPad for this image of Trini-chan’s elegant aunt, to which Mike used Photoshop and the mouse on the Mac for the scenery, nya! Junko Kishi appears to be in her 30’s, but last month washer 300th birthday, nya!

Wearing the Green & Gold outfit of the halter-neck short dress & corset with the boots & detached sleeves, Junko co-owns the jewelry store with her husband Akira, and co-owns the clothing boutique with her sister Kumi, who co-owns the optician shop with her husband Shusei, nya. Kumi & Shusei are Trini-chan’s parents, whereas Junko & Akira have the two daughters Giniku & Tahne, nya!
