Sometimes cats really are trying to tell us something - but we don't always listen. A lot of this illustration was done in the final piece with little reference material, which I think was necessary to give the surrounding darkness and the shadowy hands an element of motion outside the protective circle.
The drawing comes complete with a copy of the story by Sean Walter.
