We’re All About Cats are in constant search for feline inspiration across the web and this time we have something really cool for you guys, Artist Alex Hubbell is behind a new innovating project called The Cat Calendar. So we caught up with Alex to hear more about what appears to be a project we should definitely pay attention to 🙂
Q1: Please introduce yourself to our community
Hi! I’m Alex. I paint watercolors, and in particular, animals. I like getting to know an animal first, and then painting a portrait that shows their expression, their movement, and their spirit. One of the animals that I know best is my cat, Petunia. This is why I love to paint her so much.
Q2: Tell more about the inspiration behind Cat calendar?
Since my cat brings me such joy, I thought it might be nice to make something that would share her spirit with everyone, especially those who can’t have a cat of their own. I paint her so frequently that it was easy to find a selection of paintings to use! Each month is a unique and original watercolor of Petunia.
Q3: What do think makes cat Calendar so unique?
This calendar comes from the heart and is painted with a single color: Indigo. I haven’t seen another Cat Calendar quite like it! Also, I assemble each one by hand, and the materials are 100% natural. So, you can recycle it when the year is over!
Q4: How do you see Cat calendar developing in the future?
Next year, I want to paint cats from around the world. I’m hoping that people will submit stories of their felines to me, so that I can be inspired by all the amazing animals that brighten people’s lives. My dream is to have a 2019 Cat Calendar with future portraits of new cats I’ve yet to meet.
