Hai! Meanwhile in Gallery Two
 
we have added Mike’s CG photo-manips of two images of cosplayer / artist Crissy Volpe http://www.crimsonskycreations.com was the guest of the March 2008 Mew! Firstly of those images is Crissy as Lara Croft exploring the dark tomb! Crissy purrchased the outfit to cosplay as the Tomb Raider Legend video game’s ‘s heroine Lara Croft at the 2012 NY Comic Con, where she was brilliantly photographed by David Ng https://www.facebook.com/ngmasterphoto
 
She also appeared in the TV commercial for VideoGameCentral! With Crissy’s permission, Mike used Photoshop CS2, the mouse and his own photo of the stone wall to create this CG fan art, adding the background and the shadowy FX to the image! To see David Ng’s great original photos of Crissy as Lara at the con, please visit that gallery at Crissy’s cosplay site Blood, Sweat and Glitter http://www.crimsonskycreations.com/bloodsweatandglitter/laracroft.htm!
 
Secondly of those photo-manips is Crissy as Mera posing under the sea! She wore the gorgeous costume made by Setsuna Kou http://www.setsunakou.com/costume/costume.html to cosplay as the Word War II pin-up inspired “Bombshells” version of DC Comics’s Mera at the 2018 NY Comic Con, where she was photographed greatly by Nerd Calibur http://www.nerdcaliber.comLawrence Brenner https://www.lawrencebrenner.com and others!
 
With Crissy’s permission again Mike used Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to create this CG fan art, adding the ocean depths and crepuscular sunlight rays to elements of the great photos.To see the original unedited photos of Crissy as Mera at the con, please visit that gallery at http://www.crimsonskycreations.com/bloodsweatandglitter/meradcbombshell.htm
 
Then we have Mike’s latest two illustrative pieces of fan art of famous catgirls! The first of those is the pic of “Alita”, the plasma- clawed, cyber – tailed titular purrotagonist of Yukito Kishiro’s epic cyberpunk manga Battle Angel Alita! Mike used the pencil, pen, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse for this pic of her leaping amidst the post-apocalyptic future scrap yard! We love the manga and look forward to Alita’s live-action movie!
 
The second of those pics is “Selina Kyle: Nekomimmi Kunoichi”! Mike used the pencil, pen, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse for this pic of DC Comics’  Cat Woman from the Batman Ninja anime, which we praised in the June 2018 edition of The Mew! Here is Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman in her feline female ninja attire, grooming herself upon the three branch, perhaps after the busy night of the prowling, pouncing and catnap! 
 
To top off this month’s additions to the Catgirl Island Meweum of Art are Mike’s latest two pencil, pen, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse illustrations of his original characters, starting with “SUP- Purrs”! A SUP- Purr is the contended sound that a kemonomimi makes whilst joyfully Stand Up Paddle surfing! In this case, it is our friends Trini-chan (fox girl) on the left & Kara’Meowl (catgirl) on the right, in the bikinis as they paddle past the rocks!
 
That is followed by the pic of the heroic battle maid professoras known as “The Four Points”, who are are among the NPCs in Mike’s monthly tabletop fantasy RPG! The Celtic faerie lizard lizard girl on the left is Kayt the Western Wind Point; the Shoshone Elven bee girl in the upper middle is Diana the Northern Light Point; the Maori Faerie mermaid at the lower middle is Kyli the Southern Star Point and the Neko Mata catgirl on the right is Mitsu the Eastern Angel Point! 
 
Mike used Photoshop CS2 & the mouse to embellish this pencil & pen illustration of “Betsy the Bartender Bunny Girl” at the Her Hare Hooch Hutch bar and grill! Seen here wearing the tied tank top, shorty shorts & strappy sandals, she leans against the bar at which she expertly mixes and cordially serves the many waters, sodas, juices, milks, shakes, smoothies coffees, teas, ciders, beers, wines, whiskies & other drinks, including the bar’s delicious, nutritious, signature nummy carrot cocktail!
 
Lastly but not leastly for that gallery is Mike’s B&W 1984 Mermaid illustration that was recently found after 35 years! Her name is Hope! Mike originally used the pencil, pens & paint for this pic, but had to use Photoshop CS2 & the mouse to retouch the some of the areas that did not scan very well, such as her shading & the kelp background, but now she is happy to be at the island where she can meet many new friends! So, what do y’all think of the art?
 
Na Ling:
I like Doc & Raider’s tight six pack abs amidst the dazzling lights, and I am purrticularly fond of Tabitha’s sly expurression with the ornate piercings, nya!
 
Ji Yun:
The Dragon girl has the tight abs too, nya! I also love the fawn’s gown, the fairy’s ivy, Beryl’s twin-tail coffure, and the Black Lady’s jewelry, nya! 
 
Mike:
As usual, the lines, colors, shading, pose, expression, composition, symmetry, fashion and scenic details are wonderful in Rebecca’s illustrations!
 
Bunni:
Speaking of the scenery, there is so much mecha detail of the scrapyard in the Alita pic, and in the huge weathered rocks of the paddle surfer pic!
 
Petra:
I like the purrspective view of Trini-chan & KaraMeow’l, the supple curves of Selina and the tree, and the sheen of Hope’s fishy scales, nya!
 
Na Ling:
I would like to be there in the gallery when Trini-chan & KaraMeow’l see that illustration of them, nya!

Hai! In this portion of The Mew, we commeowmorate famous catgirls and nekomimi of myths and  popular culture, nya! Here they are broadly – defined from anthropormorphic feline females, ailuranthropic shape – shifters and other types of feline femme fatales, to those who might not actually have kitty DNA, but do have the cat-titude and / or the style for us to consider as the “honorary catgirls”, nya! 
 
This month, the spotlight will shine upon more of the comics & animation catgirls, starting with Todou Mako’s co-stars Tamaya Karin & Hayami Shun in the MaMaMa: Magical Director Mako-chan’s Magical Guidance manga by the manga-ka Okayado who is purrhaps most famous for the Monster Musume series, nya!

We have been reading our public library’s collection of the many older comic books which includes Arctic Press’s wonderful Furlough anthology series, nya! After I have read more, then I hope to have a report on some if its recurring catgirls such as Kitty Chow of The Sophisitkats and Ms. Chevious of Iron Panther, nya!
 
Lastly but not leastly we wish to mention Purrincess Unikitty, the anthropurrmorphic half – unicorn / half- cat, nya! She was introduced in The Lego Movie in 2014 and has since appurred in the sequel movies and in her own animated TV series which premiered last year upon the Cartoon Network, nya!
