I started my new group cat painting The Sillies on August 28th, 2022. The theme for this one is blepping cats, or cats sticking their tongue out in a funny way! Please email me photos for consideration after reviewing the guidelines below. Thank you!!
-good quality, well lit photos
-cat is blepping/tongue is out
-head is facing the camera
-full face and ears are showing
-photo is cropped close to the face, as shown in examples above
-you can submit as many different photos as you like!
☆Please include the cat's name and social media (if they have one)☆
-cat is not blepping/tongue out
-cropped out ears/face
-too zoomed out
-blurry, poorly lit
-head is facing down or to the side
-you don't need to submit the same photo repeatedly, once is good!
Please remember that I'm just one person and I can't possibly paint every cat that is submitted. I would if I could!!
As of October 7th, 2023, over 13,700 submissions have been emailed for The Sillies so far. I save the photos that spark painting inspiration to my phone, then I choose from there when I'm about to paint another one in! After the painting is finished, I will upload my favorite photos from the submissions and ask other artists to try their hand at painting some cats! I might even create a small book of the photos as well.
Thank you so much for your participation, I hope you enjoy watching along as I paint each cat and that seeing all their silly little faces can brighten your day. <3
This is a monthly subscription of cat art I send out by stamped envelope worldwide! It's like a little gift for yourself and you'd be supporting my art in the best way possible! :3
