Malaysian Artist Perfectly Creates Fluffy Cats Using Just Ink

Artist Kamwei Fong painstakingly creates these textured, fluffy black cats, using only fine-line pen. The illustrations, a series called The Furry Thing, are the gorgeous end product of a technique that requires a great deal of skill and patience.

“I draw them by shading with tons of tiny furs,” Kamwei told Bored Panda. “It is indeed a very time consuming process. Small ones like A3 could take a few days, big ones like 25×37 inches could take a few weeks.”

The lines are varied in size and density to slowly build volume and texture, resulting in a ‘furry’ look. The cats are crafted in such a way that each one displays a unique, playful personality, which is testament to the skill of the Malaysian artist. Kamwei makes similar works using the same technique to create a variety of animals, such as monkeys, puppies, and Bo the Goldfish, a minimalist and peace-evoking character through which Kamwei aims to “encourage and uplift people to become more optimistic about life.”
