This is a custom illustration of an orange/cream tabby named Mal that I did for my parents. You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but he’s a really mischievous cat who’s always getting into some sort of trouble!
In the reference photo, however, he looks like a pretty cool customer. Fun fact: I helped name Mal when he was just an itty bitty kitten. Mal is short for Malcolm (as in Captain Mal Reynolds) for any of you Firefly fans out there!
