How to draw a cat

If you’re a cat-lover with an artistic flair, you might be interested in our latest YouTube series. Featuring a line-up of excellent artists and illustrators, our ‘How to draw a Cat’ series focuses on how to make cat-themed images – using everything from pencil and paint to animation software.

The first episode features Rus Hudda, Creative Designer at Cats Protection, as he shows how he creates some of the artwork that you might see in our leaflets and guides. Using an iPad Pro and Apple pencil, he sets to work creating a drawing inspired by his own cat, Tali.

Next up is Ruth Hammond, a freelance illustrator who loves to illustrate cats using a combination of pencils and watercolours – something you might even be able to attempt at home.

The third episode features Garth Jones, an animator at studio Persistent Peril. He explains how he uses specialist animation software to create short films about cats – some of which have appeared on our YouTube channel.

Illustrator Sally Townsend is the focus of the fourth episode, showing how she illustrates cats using her sketchbook and tablet. Created in a distinctive style, Sally’s cats are definitely full of character!

Finally, well-known illustrator John Bond explains how to draw a cat from the comfort of his studio. Although he is typically known for drawing dogs, he’s given creating cats and go – and this one has a spooky Halloween theme.

You can watch the series below, where you’ll learn more about all of the excellent artists featured.
