The images include illustrations, photos and mixed medias, nya!

Some of the art might be sexy or depict the tasteful nudity or semi - nudity, but none of it is porn, nya! 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 on those to see the uncropped full pics, nya! This month we have added 6 new pics to Guest Gallery 5, and 6 new pics to Gallery 8, nya!

Firstly In Guest Gallery 5 

we are pleased to purrsent "Taking Off" by Rebecca Brogden, nya! She used the pencil, pens & colored pencils on the toned papurr for this illustration of our friend Phannjynnasokaaia (purronounced FAN jen ah so kay ah) the winged faerie girl in the Green dress and gold boots who is about to go for the flight, nya! 

Phannjynnasokaaia is the editor of our local mewspapurr with the college degree in journalism, nya. She is single with no children, but dotes upon her twin nieces Amyrellyana & Amyrellyana, nya! Her hobbies are sunbathing, yoga, reading, carousing, gym work outs, flying and dancing; and her favorite foods are yams, pears, honey, chocolate, berry tea, cider and wine, nya!

Then we are delighted to display Rebecca's illustration of "Spring", nya! She used the pencil, pens & markers for this illustration of Bun's mom Millicent, the Eastern Cottontail bunny girl amongst the sunflowers, nya! She is married to her bunny boy husband Bobby, and they co-own the wonderful art supply shop at North end of the island's river walk, nya! 

They have two daughters Bun Melony; Melony & her husband Richard have three children Violet, Daisy & Bunina-chan, nya! Millicent was born here on March 1st, 1946; she speaks English, Spanish, Japanese; her hobbies are gardening, ikebana, painting, sculpting, pottery, baking, and she is a fan of various sports especially the beach volleyball matches of her daughter Bunnii, nya!

Aftr that is Rebecca's fan art of "Supergirl", nya! She used the pens & colored pencils on the toned papurr for this peppy, purretty illustration of Supergirl, who is Superman’s cousin from Krypton, nya! Supergirl's Kryptonian name is Kara Zor-El, but here on Earth her secret identity is Kara Danvers, nya. She first appurred in Action Comics #252 in 1959, so 2019 will be her 60th anniversary, nya!

She speaks Norwegian, Sami, Kven, Rodi, Romani, Sylvan, and English; whilst her areas of expurrtise are zoology, botany, geology, hydrology, climatology,  tracking, wilderness survival, folklore, magick and environmental law, nya!

Then we have "Mirror Universe M'Ress" fan art by Emily Yacuzzos, who we met at WhatTheHell?! Con, nya! We could not resist the oppurrtunity to commission this inked sketch of Star Trek's most famous Caitian catgirl, Shiboline M'Ress, who appurred in the 1973 animated Star Trek series, nya! 

Voiced by Majel Barrett, M'Ress M'Ress was one of Captain Kirk's Communications Officer Lieutenants, but in this fan art of her meaner mirror universe version, we imagined her as the Captain in command of the Impurrial Star Ship Enterpurrise, wearing the sleeveless, bare-midriff uniform whilst peppily pondering her next purrey to pounce upon, nya!

Then to top this month's batch of guest art is 'Getting Ready for the Game" which is by Meesha DJ Walker, nya! We were glad to see her again at the NC Comicon: Oak City and at WhatTheHell?! Con, nya! She used the colored pencils and the Copic Markers for this 9x12" illustration of herself posing so powerfully, beautifully and gloriously in the floral purrint White string bikini at our beach, purrior to the epic volleyball match with her purrtner Bliss against Bun and I, nya!

Mike used Photoshop CS2 and the mouse for this illustration of our friends "Na Ling and Ji Yun", who are twin muntjac deer girl sisters who bartend at the Catgirl Island Purrforming Arts Center, nya! Seen here in their Orange bikinis and sheer purreos, Na Ling (left) and Ji Yun are (right) are kind, industrious, cheerful fans of anime, manga & video games, but have some different tastes in mewsic, sports and food, nya!

After that is Mike's illustration of "Zel" an original character created by TonomuraBix, nya! Bix is an illustrator / cosplayer who was a guest for our March 2008 Mew, nya! Zel is the stoic, tough, ruthless, athletic, secret agent with special abilities, nya. Here she is spying at a fancy party, wearing the strapless Black evening gown, with the plate armor on her Left arm, the short - sleeved Black shrug jacket, strappy Black high stiletto - heeled sandals, as she warily scrutinizes the party's other guests, nya!

Then we have Mike's "Hoop It Up", which is his latest illustration of Sharon Williams's fan - senshi character Tanya Cambridge, a.k.a. Sailor Sirius, and Jeff Branch's fan - senshi character Talia Jasmine Kirk, a.k.a. Sailor Vulcan, nya! Pawsing from their basketball game, Talia is on the left in the #19 jersey, and Tanya is on the right in the #59 jersey, nya! 

Sharon was the November 2014 guest of The Mew, and y'all can read her wonderful original fantasy fiction at Shaon's DeviantArt gallery; Jeff was the May 2008 guest of The Mew, and his extensive fan - site devoted to the pop mewsic duo Pink Lady is Pink Lady America, nya! 

Nextly we have the "Dominatrix Catgirl", nya! At WhatTheHell?!Con in March of 2018, a nekomimi friend commissioned Mike to do this this illustration of her girlfriend who described the alluring attire, of the studded Black corset with the strappy slit skirt and the machete, nya! Mike used the pencil, colored pencils, pens & markers for this pic, nya. The scan of this pic was color - corrected in Photoshop CS2 with the mouse, nya.

"Velvet Dress Catgirl" was another illustration done at WhatTheHell?!Con, nya! Anorther delightful nekomimi commissioned this inked sketch of herself, nya! She asked to be depicted in the bell-sleeved, short, low-cut, velvet dress with the calf-high boots and the large puffy tail, nya! She was happy with the art, but Mike parted with it before he could scan it, so this image is a digital re-creation done in Photoshop CS2 with the mouse, nya!

Lastly but not leastly, "Succubus Catgirl" was another commission at WhatTheHell?!Con, nya! The lovely client was dressed just like in the illustration, in the outfit brimming with the straps, studs, grommets 'n zuppurrs, nya! She had the cute fangs too, and for this illustration she requested the added kitty ears 'n tail as she posed gleefully to pounce upon her pending purrey in the garden at twilight, nya! Mike used the pencil, colored pencils, pens 'n markers' and the scan was color - corrected in Photoshop CS2 with the mouse, nya. It is also time for --
