Knit Pet Portrait Painting of Adoptable Cat

I couldn’t resist drawing and knitting a cute adoptable cat in a knitted sweater.

It’s been a few months since I drew a shelter animal and for some reason I was feeling inspired to return to the adoptable animal pages. For today, I chose C.C. an adoptable cat in Chicago.

A new element is the sweater. This came from two places: 1. I recently finished a job where I needed to put my knit portrait subjects in sweaters and 2. finishing a sweater for my doggo Rocket. I doubt you can see it but the sweater design inspiration came from a building in my neighborhood (below). I’m tempted to actually create a pattern and knit the sweater for Rocket, hmmmm what do you think??
