There are several ways to capture a cat. While in the past, old masters rendered playful felines in detailed oil paintings, contemporary artists use their individual styles to highlight the specific characteristics of this lovable companion. Malaysian artist Kamwei Fong is one such creator. Using a simple technical pen, he recreates the fluffy appearance of fur in his black and white cat drawings.

From long-haired kittens to bright-eyed tabby cats, each of these illustrations is made up of numerous hatch marks. Fong uses this technique to slowly build up the texture, color, and sometimes even pattern of the cat’s coat. From a distance, these tiny lines blend together, making the animals super soft. It’s only when you take a closer look that you are able to fully appreciate the time spent on this striking style.

In addition to fuzzy coats, Fong increases the cuteness of her designs by simplifying bodies into smooth geometric shapes. The bodies of these cats tend to be all circles and triangles and long rounded tails. The only definite characteristic of his subjects is the glowing round eyes and black pupils, which Fong usually leaves open to fully capture the feline appearance.

You can purchase limited-edition prints through Fong’s Etsy shop and see more cat designs by following the artist on Instagram.
