The textured, fluffy black cats on the Internet were created by an artist named Kamwei Fong from Malaysia. He uses only fine-line pen for those drawings. The illustrations, a series called The Furry Thing, are the gorgeous end product of a technique that requires a great deal of skill and patience.
“I draw them by shading with tons of tiny furs,” – Kamwei said. “It is indeed a very time consuming process. Small ones like A3 could take a few days, big ones like 25×37 inches could take a few weeks.” The lines are varied in size and density to slowly build volume and texture, resulting in a ‘furry’ look.
The cats are crafted in such a way that each one displays a unique, playful personality, which is testament to the skill of the Malaysian artist. Kamwei also uses this technique to create other animals such as monkeys, puppies and Bo the Goldfish. He illustrates under the name ‘Bo & Friends’ and sells his prints on Etsy. They are definitely fantastic gifts for those who loves specific animal.
