Dead Cats 9 and 13 by Comickpro Dead Cats 9 and 13 by Comickpro
So these are two smaller 9x12 paintings I did LAST YEAR for a Halloween art show. That's right I never bothered to post pieces from last year gah I'm bad. This is "Dead Cat #13" and "Dead Cat #9". Basically these cats are harbingers of back luck and death.

Cat #13 carries a spark in his eye that if seen will give its viewer bad luck, and Cat #9 has skulls in his eyes which if seen will cause death. The numbers of the cat, 13 is because (13) is considered an "unlucky number" and cat 9 because of the myth that "cats have 9 lives" and this one was on his 9th life heh.




If you want to see a few pics of it WIP you can click on the scrap pic here:

Thanks! The idea for these dead cats actually came from a taxidermy dead cat I saw in a shop.... when its owner died they made a will to please euthanize the cat so it joins her in death and to taxidermy the body on display in the shop (owned by her daughter) so it can watch the store in the afterlife and so they granted her will and they did that! hahaha and I said "What an unlucky cat!" :b

Well I think it's a funny name! Calling dead cats kitty witty's, :) sounds like an understatement calling them that way, you know, since they're creepy looking, which sounds funny in some way. :D

so I'm guessing you've stopped putting out pages? we're gonna have to buy the comics, right?

Yeah i still put out pencil comics of everyone [fibble/sin, sahu, trcl, etc..] and post my paintings and the occasional cartoon heh. I have no plans to stop that :) but the actual issues of in the dark [working on issue 3 now] are going to be purchase only. Although i do plan to set up some kind of digital version of the issues which can purchase on iPhone or Android...still working on it. Right now it's only real book form.

haha, that's because all the times a kid on DA tells me "I dont have a credit card XD I'm only 15!" so Im used to the sentence meaning underage as well

I love these! They make a nice combo. And I love that the each have a number (really enjoy symbolism like that!). And that fact that you did them as 'b&w' pieces is even better!

ah thanks man! ah yeah I stayed with grays and blues for these...since they are dead and cold cats (with grins) heh but hopefully it also gave them some ghostly feel too.
