Taming the Tiger

Taming the Tiger

This was for an editorial project where we were to choose an article with a picture and illustrate it, replacing the picture in the layout with our own. I chose this story from The Oldie magazine about how a black tom cat moves in on the relationship between a woman and her little lady moggy. I wanted to show the love between the woman and her cat, and how this was threatened by this new masculine influence. The cats are based on my own and a friends, so I was able to work from photos and experience.
