    Wow. That is one intense look in that cat’s eyes. Great triangular composition that just keeps one’s eyes going around and around it, from the cat’s eyes to the two mice. I’m not sure which mouse is in more trouble–the foolish one who seems to be communicating with the cat, or the fat one paying attention to nothing but the food. GREAT illustration!

    My first thought upon seeing this illustration was, “Mmmmm….snacks!” Very dramatic, beautiful work.

    The cat’s eyes are fantastic! They follow you no matter where you are looking from.
