the latest additions to the Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art, nya!

For those here for the first time, Galleries 1-8 of The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art display images by Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-5 display images by other folks totally with their purrmissions, and Mike's collaborative images with other artists can be found throughout the mewseum, nya! The images include illustrations, photos and mixed medias, nya!

Some of the images in the mewseum are sexy, and some of them might depict artistic nudity, but most are very tame, and none of them are porn, nya. On Catgirl Island's official web site, the most recent pics will be the lowermost row of the cropped widdle "thumbnail" - sized portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click upon those to see the uncropped full pics, nya!

we are purroud to purrsent Mike's latest pencil, pen, Photoshop CS2 and mouse illustrations, nya! "Cat Run I" and "Cat Run II" depict Nyanko on her mewsual morning 10 K run, nya! We see her coming and going on the unpaved Eastern trail which spans from our island's North Beach to Fuyme Park, nya! 

Then we have the  "Tail Bait I - IV" series of 4 pics which depict the views of Ilyana swearing the slingshot maillot whilst snorkle diving underwater to successfully test the new tail purrotector against the eels that try to chomp her tempting tail, nya. The ironic result is that  delicious, nutritious eel winds up as the sushi in the catgirls' tummies, nya!

Nextly is the "Seaster Eggs" drawing of mermaid, catgirl, centauress and faerie friends enjoying the tasty treats from the sea, nya! Seaster is the the local holiday in Apurril when mermaids give their best friends the home-made chocolate Seaster Eggs, nya! The eggs range from the dark, milk & white chocolate, which might be solid or filled with the creamy sauces, nya!

Then in the "Petite Pixy Purrch" pic we see another faerie, this time in the maritime forest, nya! She has found the ideal comfy mushroom on which to paws from the long flight, nya! This purrticular faerie has the lovely lepidopteran wings of the Caligo type, which have the large eyespots pattern, which tend to deter any animals that have the taste for the wings, nya!

Our next scene of the relaxation moves indoors for the "Comfy Couchy Kitty", nya! This depicts the catgirl wearing the cropped tank top and shorts whilst reclining upon the couch in the den of her beach house, nya! From the looks of the coffee table, It looks as if she has been leisurely reading the latest issues of the Cat State and Southern Purring magazines, nya!

Our next image of a catgirl friend is "Purretti", nya! Posing in her teensy bikini here i Purreti, who is the highly scoring Jammer on the island's women's flat track roller derby team, nya! Her family is originally from Thane, India, and her purrents reside on the mainland in Mooreseville NC, which is about 200 miles from her home here at Catgirl island, nya. 

Then we are delighted to display the pic of Purretti's best friend "Brooke" who is the teenage nixie, lifeguard and student who aspires to be a purramedic, nya. Wearing the shorts, flip flops and knotted shirt, she is purrched upon the stone wall near the shore, where she enjoys the grande size cup of yummy milky bubble tea, nya!

Then we are pleased to purrsent the pic of our friend "Ulana" by Mike Moon, nya! Mike used the pencil, pens, Photoshop CS2 & the mouse for this illustration of Ulana who is a lamia / snake girl, flutist, snake dance instructor, body builder, wife & mom, nya! She is wearing the fishnet athletic bra whilst lifting the barbell, nya. Purrhaps y'all have seen the pic of her daughter Lina the lake lifeguard, nya!

Nextly is the inked pencil scene of the "Nekomimi Nummy Truck", which depicts the family, friends & felines queued up at the cheerful catgirls' food truck full of delicious and nutritious seafood, drinks and desserts, nya! They appurr to have dozens of tasty treats listed on the truck's menu, nya!

After that is the "Meowgical Maid" which is the surpurrise pic of Val-san flying upon her broom, nya! She loves her job of cleaning & tidying Dr. Dach Savage's mansion, because she is highly paid with the great benefits, health insurance, flexible schedule, many vacation days, free meals, the big bedroom, and gets to enjoy all of the amenities, nya!

we are delighted to display more illustrations by illustrator / mewsician / cosplayer Rebecca Brogden, who was the guest for our September 2009 Mew, nya! However, I must warn y'all that the next three images depict the girls of sadness, tragedy and pain, as part of Rebecca's Dark series, nya.

Firstly of those is pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of "Emptyness", which depicts the traumatized and pale widdle china doll girl who has the heart -shaped abyssal hole in her chest whilst she is snared by the tangle of strings, nya. I would interpurret this as the crisis of the heart and sense of loss whilst feeling trapped in the despairing predicament, nya.

Secondly of the dark subjects is the pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of the "Dark Night of the Soul", which depicts the weeping faerie whose wings appear to be limp and bloody during the cold moonlit Winter night, nya.  I would interpurret this as the image of emotional anguish and physical pain of being stranded lonely in the harsh environment, nya.

Thirdly of the of the dark subjects is the pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of the "Bandages", which depicts the crying Blonde girl trying to wrap her wounds, appearing to be quite neglected, nya. We are honored to give these lasses a new good home at the Catgirl Island Meweum of Art, where they will be loved and cared for by many friends, nya!

Now it is time to balance those with the cheerful images of "Chibi Ochako, Froppy, Deku & Shoto" nya! They are young super heroes in the My Hero Academia manga & anime, nya! At uppurr right is Ochako who has the gravitational powers, at uppurr left is Froppy who has the amphibious abilities, at lower left is Deku who has the super strength, and at lower right is Shoto who has the fire & ice powers, nya!

Then is Rebecca's digital image of "Dragon Nystia"! Purrrhaps y'all have seen the prior pics of Nystia Nightshade the shape-shifting vampurrric dark faerie, alchemist and idol star? She is Rebecca's character in Mike's monthly tabletop fantasy role-playing game, nya! Here in her dragon girl form, she is posing triumphantly amongst the high misty mountains, wearing the Thulian Pink toga that matches her lovely wings!  

Lastly but not leastly is "Pixie Lights", Rebecca's pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of the cute young elf girl in the saffron - colored sundress twirling happily amongst the balls of nocturnal light!, nya! Meanwhile, it is also time for
