Illustration Friday: Enough

Do you ever feel like you don't have enough? Not enough good luck, good fortune, wealth, happiness, or love?

Meet Maneki Neko, the Good Luck Cat. With his good luck charm and paw up in the air, you won't worry about having enough for long!

I'm working on a Japanese series, and my Maneki Neko cats will be the first finished pieces of the collection. This one is my finished illustration for Illustration Friday, as it suits the topic of Enough purrrrfectly. So far, this tabby cat is my absolute favorite, and I plan on having a print on the wall above my work space to provide good luck and good fortune whenever I create. I also have finished a white Maneki Neko cat with a lovely pink cherry blossoms background and have a black cat in the works. They are so cute and fun!


I'll be adding Maneki Neko, both the prints and originals, to my shop sometime next month, once my Japanese series if finished.

Enjoy!
xoxo,

nice illo :-) but don't forget that lucky cats should be placed in such a way that they can look out the door and attract good fortune and especially money when it passes by: only that way it will come in and stay ;-) i have one sitting in my hall and i can only say ... it works *g*

Every time you show a new illustration, I think, "This is the cutest thing she's done yet!" Then you post the next illustration and then I think the same thing. (Though now I actually think the Mittens picture wins hands down for the cutest thing ever. Not that I'm biased or anything...)
