My name is Katy. I am an Orthodox Christian, a libertarian, and an artist. I take joy in the love of God, in the radiance of nature, and in the preservation of freedom.

I have always been a very prolific drawer of animals and various other things. My mother tells me that, when I was 2, she found that I'd figured out how to turn on the computer, navigate to the art program, and start drawing. For me, drawing is not a way of dealing with problems, expressing important ideas, or making statements-- it is about satisfying a visceral desire to pick up any wayward pens and create (but it helps me deal with my emotions too). I was one of those students who spent most classes drawing pictures of dragons and wolves instead of taking notes. For most casual observers, the fact that I was meant to do art was obvious; but for me, the plain reality was buried underneath the idea that I had to do something glamorous. I have since come to my senses, and am now launching The Feathered Cat-- or Feathercat-- the banner under which my current and future works will be collected.

Currently, I am working primarily in watercolors, with some work in ballpoint pen and oil paint. My subject matter varies, but focuses primarily on furries, animals, and chimaera. My favorite creatures to draw and paint are currently cats, but my other favorites are dragons, fish, snakes, big cats, wolves, and dinosaurs. I also take great pleasure in creating new animals, and these creations will likely come to constitute the bulk of my work apart from cats. My favorite non-animal subject matter is space-- I love to paint the detail on the surfaces of planets, or the layering in the atmosphere of a gas giant, and I love the shape and luminescence of a spiral galaxy. My art is limited only by my imagination, and I am always imagining new things. Read Less
I am open for commissions!

I currently offer two basic types of art: pen and ink drawings, and watercolors. As a general rule, I price my work according to how long it took me to do it. This price, depending on the final quality, will fall between $15-$20/hour. So, if I'm making you a 1.5 to 2-hour watercolor por… Read More
I am open for commissions!

I currently offer two basic types of art: pen and ink drawings, and watercolors. As a general rule, I price my work according to how long it took me to do it. This price, depending on the final quality, will fall between $15-$20/hour. So, if I'm making you a 1.5 to 2-hour watercolor portrait, for instance, that will cost around $20-40. Also, I am happy to get art framed for you, but you will need to pay for it because frames cost money. The same goes for shipping costs. Likewise, if you want something very big or in expensive media, it will cost more because I will have to factor in the material expenses. I am happy to discuss any questions about these things with you, and I am willing to do custom work not appearing in the below chart, including negotiations on the price of said work. If you are interested in a commission, note me or e-mail me at TheFeathercat@gmail.com.

WATERCOLORS

5x6" portraits; price: $30: these are small portraits of a character, animal, or whatever (or whoever) you like. These I generally would not send in physical form, but I will send you a high-quality cropped scan. If you want the original painting, however, I will gladly mail it to you (provided you pay the shipping fee).

9x12" full-body painting; price: $40-50: These are painted on nice watercolor paper and are meant to be physically owned and so, if you want one, I will ask for shipping information from you! For $40-50 I will do a full-body watercolor of your character, creature, fursona, etc. with a minimal background.

9x12" Richly detailed busts/face portraits; price: $75-85: These are similar to full-body renderings, but can include more richly colored and occasionally simply-patterned backgrounds, as well as highly detailed features. The result is a striking painting that takes about 4 hours of work to complete.

DRAWINGS

More info will be posted on my rates for drawings as I get examples posted up of what I offer. For now, if you are interested in a drawing, contact me-- I have paper in 6x6", 9x12", and 14x17" sizes, and as with watercolors I can negotiate around a rate of $15-20 per hour of work. I have several slots open, so if you are interested, note me or e-mail me at TheFeathercat[at]gmail.com and get a commission!

Other notes:

1. Just because I don't list it doesn't mean I won't do it! Ask me about what you're interested in; I can probably make it happen! I have been known to draw and paint on rocks, post-it notes, notebook paper, butcher paper, canvas, and in one case a makeshift mantlepiece. My art media have been known to include oil paints, pencils, pastels, chalks, crayons, charcoal, clay, a camera, and even ground-up rocks mixed with spit. I know how to use a grid to scale an image up and make wall murals, for instance. I am willing to experiment and try new things, and I learn very quickly, so if you have any neat ideas you'd like to see me bring to fruition, say so!

2. I am an Orthodox Christian. What does this mean for commissions? It basically just means I won't draw smut or satanic stuff. If what you want isn't smutty or generally evil, I probably won't have a problem with it. By smutty I mean anything overtly sexual, or anything where the pose or clothing of a character makes it look kinky or otherwise suggestive. I don't mind drawing/painting attractive characters, however; likewise I am fine with tasteful nudes. If you have questions, ask them! Read Less
