The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for May 2016, nya!
Aloha Y'all and welcome to Catgirl Island, nya! May is such a cheerfully festive month here at Catgirl Island, where we are so blessed by the beauty of nature, the equality and the friendly folks, nya! The purrecious gem stone for May is the Emerald, but if that is too purricey the gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid, centauress or fae, then we suggest the delicious, nutritious, locally caught seafood for suppurr, and our fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of the Bass, Bluefish, Cobias, Croakers, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Snappurrs & Tunas, nya!
Fortunately, the riverwalk & oceanview boutiques are brimming with bikinis in the purretty floral purrints to nicely frame the filled tummy, nya! There are maillots, yukatas, purreos, sarongs, crop tops shorts & capurri pants too, nya. In addition to the angling, other athletic purrsuits to keep the tummy taut amidst the suppurrs & catnaps are the martial arts, kyudo, yoga, golf, tennis, field hockey, rec league beach volleyball, softball, soccer, diving, swimming, surfing, paddle surfing, kayaking, sailing, purrkour, cycling, the Hula, Hot Salsa and Belly Dance nya!
Among the holidays & observances here at Catgirl Island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County in May are Children's Day, May the Fourth, Cinco de Mayo, May Day, Free Comic Book Day, Graduation Day, Armed Forces Day, Teacher Day, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, Victoria Day, and Holocaust Remembrance Day, nya! Some of our local matsuri & festivals are Mer-Morial Day, Azalea & Lilly Purrades, kite flying tournyament, and the Dance Festival at the Purrforming Arts Center, nya! We also have several additions to the
The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art, nya!
For those who are here for the first time, the Art Galleries 1-7 display images by Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-4 display images by other folks with their kind purrmissions, nya! The most recent pics are on the lowermost row of the widdle "thumbnail" portions of the pics, and you have to click upon those to see the uncropped full pics, nya! In our freshly opened Guest Gallery 4
we are purroud to purrsent the "Toadstool Fairy" by our friend Rebecca Brogden
The faerie looks so purretty, purrky 'n peppy purrched upon the spongy comfy mushroom as she poses with a butterfly friend, nya! Her off-shoulder, bare-midriff outfit has the Reddish Brown hues to match the shroom, with the Green pendant & ruffled short skirt to match the wings & foliage, nya! Then we have Rebecca's "Kitsune ACEO" which depicts the purretty, purrky fox girl who wistfully anticipaties the beautiful day, nya! She has the White - tipped tail to match her lush hair and lovely ears, in cute contrast with the vivid hot Pink cropped top and the Blue jeans shorts, 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!
After that are Rebecca's illustrations of Nystia's companions "Herman, Cecil & Jonny" who are NPCs in that RPG, nya! Herman (top) & Cecil (middle) are fellow faeries and are deputies in Nystia's posse, whilst Jonny (bottom) is a mewsic idol who they rescued from an evil demon lord who caught him and his sister Rosebud, nya! Purrhaps y'all have seen the pics of their other friends, nya? Rebecca used pens & markers to render the fairy and kitsune; and used Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop CS6 and a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet to render Nystia, Cecil, Herman & Jonny, nya!
Then we are pleased to display the painting of a “Jetpack Girl” by our friend Meesha Walker
, nya! Meesha used the gouache to paint this image of her character named Flylicity who zooms away from a fresh combat victory, nya! Flylicity used her jetpack and supurr ice claw attack to defeat a fierce aerial villain, who appurrently had claws too, nya! Thus, she has some dueling scars and ripped clothes, but the defeated enemy that she is leaving behind is in the much worse condition, nya!
In Gallery 7
is Mike's fan art of the "Twin Trek catgirls", nya! Since this year is the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, and because may is the start of the Gemini zodiac sign, Mike used Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to render this pic of the twin Caitians who were purrtayed by sisters Katie & Kellie Cockrell in the movie Star Trek Into Darkness, nya!
Then in Gallery 7 we are especially pleased to unveil Mike's wedding purrtrait of "Elizabeth & Rebecca", nya! It was in May of 2010 when Becca came to our island and became Lizzy's house mate & business purrtner at the health spa, and later they became the romantic purrtners too, so we have been so happy for their marriage, nya! Mike used Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to render this pic of them wearing the wedding kimonos accompanied by their cats Onyx & Obsidian in the coastal garden before the ceremony, nya!
After that is Mike's bit of Marvel Comics' Magneto purrody / fan art of "Magneko, the Mewtant Mistress of Magnetism", who is using her supurr magnetic powers to open the cans of tasty cat food, which are causing the craving in my tummy, nya! She appurropurriately has the Tabby "M" on her helmet which matches her cape, gloves and bikini-like costume, nya! The idea was inspired by Meesha's sketch of a female magneto, and Mike used the pencil, pens, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse, to render this illustration, nya!
Finally for this month in Gallery 7 is Mike's illustration of a "Space Golf Catgirl", nya! In this scene, Starfleet officer Alana Shepurrd eagles the ball into the crater to finish the round at 9 under pawr in the tournyament at the Cattyshack Golf Club on the Furra Mewro Highlands of The Moon, nya! Mike used Derwent pencil, Micron pens, Prismacolor pencils & markers, Copic markers, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to render this illustration for Meesha, nya! Meanwhile, it is also time for
the May 2016 edition of The Mew, nya!
