There’s nothing more adorable than a fluffy cat. And we can go all day just brushing and stroking their soft, thick fur. If you can’t get enough of feline furballs, Malaysian artist Kamwei Fong will give you what you’ve always wanted. In his The Furry Thing series, the illustrator creates a collection of fluffy black cats ink drawings. One look at these drawings and you’d wish that these kitties are real.
Fong created the first piece of The Furry Thing series in 2009 and named it Kitty No. 1. Since then, he has been making more ink drawings that mostly depict adorable fluffy black cats. Using only black pigment ink, Fong renders each furball with a multitude of short, thin lines. He creates a variation in the density of the lines to achieve volume which is essential in making the ‘fluffy’ effect.
Despite the uniform style, each furry kitty demonstrates expressive personality through their bright eyes and shaggy tails. Some of them are puffed into playful balls of fur while others possess tails that seem to have a life of their own. One piece depicts a cat with its tail taking the form of the iconic Japanese print The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Another drawing exhibits a cat being frightened by its demon tail and another one showing a curious kitty with a fish dangling from its tail. Fong also envisioned a group of furry kitties as a woman’s hair on one of his drawings.
