Illustration Friday - Fat


What would a fat cat like more than a juicy mouse... sushi of course. I think my cat would take a California roll over a mouse any day - she wouldn't have to chase the California roll.

i love this! all the details are great...i love that the mouse is serving the fat cat. it reminds me of my friends old cat who once watched a rat eat from its bowl and didn't even move to catch it!
