Classy Portraits of Cats Portrayed As Royalty

July 31st, 2013 by Ieva | No Comments | Filed in Design

Tashkent-based artist Eldar Zakirov presents a series of digitally painted cats, proudly posing in different royal attires for the Hermitage Magazine. The cats look so at home in their outfits and each piece is so realistic that one might even be tricked into thinking these are actual oil paintings! Every singly detail, starting with the fabrics of the outfits and ending with the background of the paintings is very carefully chosen to represent the era appropriately.

Throughout the course of history, cats could often be seen in royal or otherwise important surroundings: starting with their divine positioning in Ancient Egypt, and ending with the muse status for the most famous artists. Clearly they’re the best pet models to pull off these royal tuxedos!

  • About us

    It was in the back corner of McDonalds with a couple of hours to wait for a train home to Norwich, that theDot first came together. Freshly inspired by a weekend at the 4designers conference in London and having traipsed around museums and exhibitions all day, three minds came together over chicken burgers and chips.

    The three are currently studying Graphic Communication at Norwich University College of the Arts, where they delve into advertising, corporate branding, design for publishing, photography, illustration and so on. All confident in their skills, but continuing on their learning journey.

    We are a new design group hoping to achieve great things

    Meet some of our friends.
