Meow 31 / Laura Hughes

Laura Hughes is a London based illustrator with an adorable cat named Lulu. I was lucky enough to go to university with Laura and it was always exciting to sneak a peek into her sketchbooks! Make sure to check out her blog to see more of her beautiful illustrations. Her own Etsy shop will be launched later this year - can't wait!
EDIT: Laura's shop is now online at: LauraIllustrator.Etsy.com

Meow 30 / Mimi Kirchner

Mimi Kirchner is a Boston-based artist who creates wonderfully imaginative, excuisitely hand-crafted dolls. The beautiful cats above are only a tiny fragment of the amazing range of characters she creates, so make sure to check out her shop! Etsy also made one of their hand-made portrait videos about Mimi, you can check it out here . It makes me so happy and inspired to just look at her work. Her own lovely ginger cat is called Mango.
