Artist Challenges Herself To A 100-Day Cat Meme Drawing Challenge (20 Pics)

Published 3 months ago

Emily Paquin, aka Catwheezie, is an animation student who challenged herself to draw a cat meme every day for 100 days back on the 13th of June. She is currently on day 75 and it looks like she’s determined to reach that 100!

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Emily said that cats were actually the first thing that she ever learned to draw. She says that she always loved funny cat pictures and used to print out similar ones and glue them on her school notebooks.

As for the current 100-day challenge, the artist says that she finds most of the cats for her drawings on Instagram, and says that each one of the drawings takes her 2 to 3 hours to finish. “Usually, I work on several of them at a time so I can make sure I’ll have a new cat to post everyday,” says Emily. “A lot of planning goes into this project.”

Believe it or not, Emily did not start this challenge by accident – turns out she really wants a kitten and the challenge is a way to prove it to her family. “The project started when I decided to draw a cat every day until I was able to adopt one myself,” said the artist. “For a while, I imagined I might be drawing cats forever, doomed to never adopt one. Magically, things fell into place and on day 21, my family and I adopted Beanie, a two-month-old rescue kitten.” And even though she adopted the kitten, the artist decided to continue the project for the remainder of the 100 days.”After that, who knows! If people aren’t sick of my cat art by then, I’d be glad to continue,” concluded Emily.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
