Cat and Rat

New spot illustration for an Pearson Education

This was a fun little project. Just a simple color spot of a cat on a mat and a rat in a hat. I liked the first sketch better with more interplay between the characters, but the editor wanted the cat laying on the mat. The 2nd version I drew the cat laying on the mat but attempted to keep the tension between the characters with the cat’s playful posture. 

In the final version the editors wanted the cat to have all 4 on the floor.
