I took this weekend off to get back into practicing drawing on the iPad and what better way than to draw out more Halloween cats?! I had really no idea where I was going with these, just doing some happy kitties in costume, ready for trick-or-treating. In the end I decided to put them in front of my old haunted house so they could actually go trick-or-treating! I put up two versions in my RedBubble shop. I wanted to target the greeting card with text, but since you can’t specifically target the greeting card separate from the art print (like you can on Society6) I had to make the two versions. Text and cats only is enabled on some, but not all items.
One of the first things I drew out was this chonky kitty below. He’s had far too many pumpkin spice lattes! Not gonna lie, I was giggling a lot while drawing him out. There’s also a Christmas version in my RedBubble shop, because honestly, peppermint mocha>PSL.
Then I have the “Pumpkin Familiars.” I really, really love painting chonky cats, so naturally that means I love drawing them too! These two were like peas in a pod.
I really love Halloween, if you haven’t noticed. The other night I was trying to sleep but found it next to impossible so I got up and started drawing out little images of cats and Halloween-themed things. It turned into sort of a pattern. Now, I’m not very good with patterns, it’s something I definitely need to work on, but I like how this came out even if it isn’t “purrfect!”
Last, but not least in this update of “what has KilkennyCat been up to?” are some new Halloween/Autumn-themed art pins! I love my autumn coffee cats, and people also seem to love them, so I made them into pins! Then also added some black cat faces and ghosts that honestly were inspired by the above patterned drawing. I didn’t resin these like the nerd cats and other pins. They just looked really nice with a couple coats of matte varnish. There are still some available in my Zibbet Shop!
Handmade folk art cat ornaments based off of characters from my paintings! These are my original, handmade, painted, and (most of them) glittered ornaments ready for your Halloween tree! No machines or molds are used to make my ornaments so every one is unique. They come with a wire looped hanger and a rusty jingly bell. Find them in the Ornaments section in my Zibbet Shop!

Hi everyone! So as Halloween items start filling the stores, I have a huge favor to ask! If you happen to see something that you think or know looks like my stuff, please let me know! If you can grab photos of item, price tag, and maker that would be awesome. I was alerted last night by an awesome fan who was gifted a pillow from <insert big retail store here> that definitely is using my art without permission. They sent all the pertinent info and photos and I forwarded that to my lawyer.
Just for the record, if I license anything, I will let always let you all know by posting about it on my Facebook art page, sometimes here on the blog, but most of my posts are on the art page. Pillows are definitely not anything I will ever license since I sell those in my online shops! Thank you and hope you’re all doing well and having a good start to this week.
