The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for Apurril 2016, nya!
Aloha Y'all and welcome to Catgirl Island, nya! It is already Spurringtime or season of Haru to put the "purr" in Apurril, nya! While it might have just recently been the windy, iced nippier climate on parts of the mainland, it is purretty much purrpetually lushly green and of the gently breezy, sunny bikini weather all year round here at our outer banks island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County, so we are happy to welcome the visitors who crave the beach, maritime forest, gardens, hot spurrings, and the festivities, nya!
Among the month's observations are Passover, Earth Day, Anzac Day, Arbor Day, our island's textiles festival, the Hana and Sakura Matsuris, nya! The purrecious gem for Apurril is the Diamond, and the zodiac signs are Aries then Taurus, nya. The boutiques along the riverwalk of beautiful downtown Purrbank are brimming with the bikinis, maillots, purreos, towels, shorts, halter tops, tee shirts, yukatas, kimonos and sarees that evoke the lovely hues of the gingers, heliconias, anthuriums, hydrangeas, cherries and wisterias, nya!
There are fun athletic purrsuits here such as the belly dance, hot salsa dance, hula, martial arts, kyudo, purrkour, cycling, golf, tennis, lacrosse, softball, soccer, beach volleyball, diving, swimming, surfing and sailing, nya! Our local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of the Bluefish, Cobias, Croakers, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Snappurrs, Tunas & Shrimp, nya! The flower of the month is the Daisy, which would be an appurropurriate garnish on the plate, and after the suppurr, we suggest the stroll to go see the latest additions to
The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art, nya!

Nyow In Guest Gallery 3
we are purroud to purrsent a beautiful Redhead "Farie ACEO 2" by Rebecca Brogden
, nya! The alluring faerie with the purrt short Red hair to match the costa part of her wings, whilst wearing the Blue front - lace bikini with the matching purreo, nya!
Then we have Rebecca's "Slime Girl ACEO", nya! Compurrised of the magickally gelatinous substance, the slime girl seems curious as to why we are visiting her aquatic habitat, nya! Seen from the hips up, she is a naked slime girl, but her boobies are cleverly obscured by the watermark upon the illustration, nya! Rebecca used the pens & markers to render both of those ACEOs, nya!
Next in Guest Art Gallery 3 we are purroud to purrsent "Who Wants Coffee!?!" by Darkdugofdoom
, nya! This pen & marker rendering depicts Yara, the feisty feral first mate of the airship Heaven's Blessing in the steam punk adventure fantasy tale of the Pirates of Tezomea
by Neesa & Doug "Darkdugofdoom" Chapman
Neesa and Doug are among the friends whom we always look forward to visiting with at WhatTheHell?! Con, nya! Yara is a big burly brawler with the fierce feline qualities, but in this illustration she is almost wearing the dainty dress, although it has gotten rather shredded whilst she cheerfully brings the pot of coffee, nya!
In Gallery 7
is Mike's illustration of "Boiler (Catgirl Version)"
, nya! This pencil, pen marker, Photoshop CS2 and mouse rendering depicts Yara's friend Boiler, the engineer aboard the airship, nya! She is the petite mousey human girl, but in this illustration she has the Siamese cat ears and tail as she tinkers with the ship's mechanisms, nya!
After that is Mike's "Cyber Goth Catgirl and Her Kitty", nya! The catgirl wears the goggles, neon dreadlocks, cat bell collar, cropped tank top, wristbands, underbust corset, vinyl skirt, fingerless fishnet gloves, stockings, leg warmers & raveboots as she hugs her widdle kuroneko, nya! Mike used the pencils, pens & markers to sketch this pic for our friend Kitten at WhatTheHell?! Con, nya!
Then in Gallery 7 we have Mike's pencil, pen & marker illustration of a requested Native American "Forest Purrincess", who is quite nspired by the character San of the Princess Mononoke anime, nya! They might be twins, but that remains a mystery for the realm of non - canonical fan - fiction, and we do not wish to purress the point, especially the point of her sharp obsidian knife, nya!
Nextly is Mike's illustration of his RPG NPC Rosebud who is "Nummy Carrot Shopping", nya! Rosebud is a 29 year old Red Bunny Girl who likes to purrchase delicious, nutritious fresh purroduce when she is not busy with adventures or purrducing mewsic, nya! She is 5'2" tall and 98 lbs with the Orange Red hair & tail the freckled fair skin and 32B-22-30 measurements, nya!
It is only appurropurriate that for this month we should have an image of catgirl named April, so we have added Mike's fan art of April Dumaka, a.k.a. DC Comics's "Catspaw", nya! She is a frisky, fierce supurr hero from the Earth in the future who purremiered in Legion of Super-Heroes #33, which was published in September of 1992, so next year will be her 25th anniversary, nya!
She appurred in some later issues and in the Legionnaires spin-off series, but sadly in 1994 she disappurred from the continuity during the Zero Hour reboot tale, nya. Finally for this month is Mike's fan art of another DC Comics catgirl "The Cheetah", nya! This fierce feline femme fatale first appurred in Wonder Woman #6 in 1943, so 2018 will be her 75th anniversary, nya!
She unclothed, but is covered in the Yellow and White fur with purretty spots, and this pic she has purrloined Wonder Woman's tiara, bracelets and golden lasso, which has been twined into the ball to paw at, nya! Mike used Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to render Rosebud and those two DC catgirls, nya! Meanwhile, it is also time for the Apurril 2016 edition of The Mew, nya!
