Portrait


This is officially my #1 prized possession, custom portraits of my two cats/the Summerland mascots Muffin and Cupcake. I first found Sarah McNeil through a late night Etsy binge and instantly fell in love with her drawings. They're reminiscent of old Victorian prints, perfect for an ex-romantic goth like me haha (more on that later).

This is definitely the best Christmas present ever, my fiancé scored major points!!!!

Oh my god Muffin & Cupcake look so adorable! Those bows! Ahhhhh! My head hurts from the cuteness.

Oh my goodness!!!!! These are so perfect! Was it her idea to include the bows? Because if it was your fiancé's, NEVER LET HIM GO

PS "lucky bitch" is a pretty good tag you guys

HAHA I never look at tags so I'm glad Anabela mentioned the lucky bitch one. Very awesome. Also I can't wait to hear about this gothic past of yours. ME TOO GIRL... me too. Well, semi-goth.

anabela - she suggested the bows but he had the forethought to have them colored to match their IRL collars, cute cute.

anja - we have a lot in common! i was semi-goth too, maybe we could go hang out in a cemetery sometime?

glad you guys appreciate the lucky bitch tag!

Adorable! And I love that your cats are named Muffin and Cupcake.

Sarah McNeil stayed in my apartment in November! She and Devon Smith (http://www.etsy.com/shop/deerface ) were in San Francisco for an art show and were couchsurfing with a friend of ours. Their next place fell through, so we let them stay at our place while we were gone for the weekend. I had seen Sarah's art on etsy before, so it was a weird "small world" moment. When we came back Devon had left us this painting of our cats, which I absolutely love. http://transientexpression.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/cat-portraits-small.jpg
