I started looking at English dandy fashion and then just started using cats… becuase if cats wore clothes they'd be dandys.
'cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion..
I began drawing Dandy's with bow-ties and waistcoats, trying to illustrate this Kinks song lyric. However drawing this little kitten in clothes really made me want to depict more of a follower/sidekick image.
I couldn't actually figure out how work the text subtly into the image I first submitted this image with the two characters. However, After feedback I do feel that the smaller kitten in boots is stronger than the adult - it works much better as a cleaner grey background image too.
