Whimsical Witch Cat Drawing

Standard

Since Halloween is only a few days away, I decided to combine two of the holiday’s most famous symbols – cats and witches.

Here the cat is snoozing away while flying on a broomstick.

It’s no wonder why these two are such popular symbols of Halloween. Cats have long been believed to have psychic powers, while witchcraft has brought about feelings fear and curiosity.

 

Scared Black Cat Drawing – Fur Standing – Minimal Halloween

Standard

“Beware of the night, child. All cats are black in the dark.” -Jean Genet

I wanted to make a drawing that was simple yet spooky. I thought that the striking shape of a cat with it’s fur standing was a good choice for that. I sketched out the shape, darkened the outline with marker, and filled in the black with editing software. Here’s the result:

Physical prints are also available for purchase on Fine Art America.)

Black cats are one of the most popular symbols of Halloween. They have long been believed to have physic powers. This belief was so powerful in Ancient Egypt that the cats were often mummified and buried with their owners.

I hope you enjoy my scaredy cat drawing!
