Antique Pets

Horrifyingly cute anthropomorphic animals dressed in Victorian clothing! Apparently there was a guy named Harry Whittier Frees who would take horrifyingly cute pictures of animals dressed up as people for children’s books. These were the original cat memes before the internet ever existed. I fell in love with the concept, but decided to use Photoshop to create my artwork to avoid getting my eyes clawed out. Blurring the line between creepy and cute, I strive for a flabbergasted and sometimes uncomfortable reaction from the viewer. I digitally paint my images together in the computer using layers, masks, brushes, and textures.
