Aloha y'all! Here are the official Catgirl Island mews & announcements for February 2018, nya!


Aloha, nya! We hope that 2018 has been off to the happy, healthy, free and purrospurrous start for all good folks nya! Here at our NC Outer Banks island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County in North Carolina, it is the purrticularly festive month amidst our purrpetual bikini weather compurred to some of the nippier mainland tempurratures, nya! 

Among February's festivities are observances of Groundhog Day, Waitangi Day, Purresidents Day, Abraham Lincoln's birhday, George Washington's birthday, Black History Month, Chinese New Year, and Ash Wednesday, plus our local Lantern Matsuri, Amethyst Festival, Violets Purrade, Lamia Naga Festival, the kyudo and fishing tournyaments, nya!

Cat Tuesday starts our local Carnaval, and it is also our local Kemonomimi Appurreciation Month, and the merfolk's romantic ValenTides Day, mew la la, nya! Amethyst is the purrecious gem for February, but if that If that is too purricey a gift for that special purrson, then purrhaps the way to the heart and tummy is with the fresh seafood suppurr, nya! 

The local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of Groupurrs, Snapurrs, Bluefish, Sea Bass, Trout and Tunas, nya! The local boutiques are brimming with the bikinis, maillots, purreos, sarongs, hijabs, sarees, ao dais, sun dresses, kimonos, yukatas, fundoshi, gi, hakama, shorts, tee shirts, halter tops, lingerie, robes, athletic bras, towels and wet suits, nya!

The backless & halter - neck styles are recommended for winged folks, and be sure to specify if you purrfur the garment with the opening for the tail, nya! The market also has the translucent mermaid bras which are sustain-ably made from the bells of naturally - deceased, locally - caught jellyfish, available in numerous iridescent colors & cup sizes, mew la la, nya! 

After the shopping, dining, catnaps, sight seeing and playtime, y'all might like to see

the latest additions to Catgirl Island's 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 with their kind 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 art might be sexy or depict the tasteful nudity or semi - nudity, but none of it is porn, nya! 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 on those to see the uncropped full pics, nya! This month we have added 8 new pics to Guest Gallery 5, and 1 new pic to Gallery 8, nya!

we are pleased to purrsent the two purretty pieces of fan art that depict the My Hero Academy manga and anime's peppy student supurr heroines "Ochako" and "Froppy" by Rebecca Brogden!

Rebecca used the pencil, pens and copic markers for the pic of Ochako the Brown - haired girl with the gravitational powers in the Pink and Black costume amidst the levitated stony debris, and she used the pencil, pens and colored pencils on the toned papurr for the pic of Froppy the Green - haired girl with the the frog powers in the Green and Black costume purrched upon the lily pad, nya. 

Nextly are the "Frisky Catgirl" and "Angelic" girl  by Lumshock, nya! The frisky Red - haired catgirl looks as if she has enjoyed the wild time, nya! Her expurression is so cute, and she has the lean, lithe figure with the slender tail, and the bare tummy framed by the panty and cropped shirt cropped which are accessorized by the bell collar & Fuchsia thigh highs, nya!

The Blonde angelic girl seems the bit purrplexed to see us, as she soaks up the sunshine whilst flying above the Blue Sky's clouds, nya! She adorably petite with the short, translucent diaphanous night shirt to match her  majestic White feathery wings, and the Golden halo above her waist -  length Blonde hair, nya! Lumshock used Clip Studio Pro to digitally illustrate both of those pics with nya!

Nextly we have the fabulous fan art of the Fate/Apocrypha anime's "Frankenstein" by Misty Hopkins, nya! Misty used the pencil, pens and Crayola colored pencils for this image of Golden - horned lass in the White drop - waist bridal ball gown with the detached sleeves and the Black fingertip - veil; and she used the purrismacolor markers for the lightning background, nya!

Then we are delighted to debut "Down The Red Carpet 2018" by Sean Martin, nya! This 3D CG rendering depicts the artist betwixt the titular stars of his famous comic strip Doc and Raider, nya! 

Doc is an author from Quebec, Raider is a construction worker from Saskatchewan, Sean is an author / artist / designer, and they look very buffly barbaric and magickally muscular as they flex pose at our 11th Annual Mew Awards Purresentation, nya!

We are also ecstatic to exhibit the image of "Yule" by our web master Jamie, who used Photoshop, Painter, and Clip Studio Paint to illustrate this beautiful, magickally wintry image of Chelsea Urania Kate Chattan, who is the heroic witchy were - panther star of Jamie's urban fantasy webcomic Clan of the Cats, nya!

Chelsea was a guest for our August 2007 Mew, nya! In this illustration she is so elegantly wearing the holly head lei and the White gown as she inspects the purristine snowflakes, nya!

We are especially excited to exhibit the winners of the Catgirl Island School (K-12)'s Art 1 Class's Winter 2018 Compurrtition, nya! As determined by the non-biased panel of judges, the top four winners were (in no purrticular order) the water color painting of the "Neko Rainbow Wish" by Amyaria-chan which depicts the kitty in the meadow looking at the rainbow...

... the brush marker illustration of the "Treasure Hunt" by Aahlaadita-chan which depicts the mermaid finding the chest, the colored pencil drawing of "Mom's Fresh Carrots" by Bunina-chan which depicts her mom Melony with the bushel; and the pastel pic of the "Neko Kippurr Snack" by Gildanna-chan which depicts the face of the happy kitty with the fish, nya!

They were awarded the Paw d' Plat (Platinum Paw) ribbon for 1st place, the Paw d' Or (Golden Paw) ribbon for 2nd, Paw d' Argent (Silver Paw) ribbon for 3rd, the Paw d' Bronze (Bronze Paw) for 4th, and the other students were awarded the Paw d' Cuivre (Coppurr Paw) ribbons for their purrticipation, nya!

Then in Gallery 8

An erotic drama for adults and not for widdle kitties, Omaha's saga spanned several titles over the decades and concluded in 2013, nya. Mike used Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to illustrate her in the bikini whilst purrforming the pole dance, nya! It is also time for --
