Meow 62 / Jen Collins

Jen Collins lives in Glasgow, where she creates illustrations inspired by people, nature and every day occurrences - they are absolutely lovely and I've been a fan for a long time. Make sure to check out her blog, where she shares more of her work as well as photos of her beautiful workspace and flat - so inspiring! (I'm a little envious). The fantastic Cat Tote Bag and Cat Notebook are available from her Etsy shop. Jen doesn't own any cats herself, but she likes to make feline friends. The cats in the photos are George, Desmond and Biscuit.

Meow 61 / Harriet Damave

Harriet Damave is an artist from Amsterdam. She makes unique hand painted ceramics as well as porcelain delft jewellery, wall hangings and ornaments. There were so many amazing cat-themed items in her two shops (House Of Harriet & Harriet Damave), I had a hard time picking only a few! Her big black cat is called Bessie and was adopted from a cat shelter eight years ago. Check out more images of Harriet's art and life on her flickr page.

Meow 60 / Ekaterina Trukhan

I have recently discovered the lovely work of Ekaterina Trukhan, she is originally from Russia and now lives in London. Ekaterina has recently had a book published called Me and My Cat, published by Macmillan Children's Books,  about a friendship between a girl and her cat. Ekaterina is running a competition to win a free signed copy! All you need to do is leave a comment on her blog answering the question 'why do you like cats?'. Ekaterina will select the winner on July 20th. Her pretty ginger cat is called Moris.

Meow 59 / Nicola Rowlands

Nicola Rowlands is an artist and graphic designer living in Manchester, where she creates her charming illustrations and the products she sells in her Etsy shop.  Her Taco Kitty tote bag was recently featured in Frankie Magazine. She's also a runner, which makes her super cool in my books! (There totally should be a blog about illustrators who run.) Nicola dreams of owning a white cat at some point in the future, but for now she got the best birthday cat cake ever! Don't forget to check out her blog.
