Malaysian artist Kamwei Fong is the creator of The Furry Thing series, a collection of adorable fluffy black cat ink drawings. The artist lives by the motto, “Be Happy. Be Childlike. Be Ridiculous.” This philosophy is illustrated throughout his growing portfolio of animal-themed artwork, where each character is depicted as playful balls of fur.

Fong works under the handle Bo&Friends, which was founded in 2010 and named after his pet goldfish, Bo. Since then, the artist has developed his own distinct style, rendering each fluffy feline with a myriad of short, thin lines in various densities. Other than being adorable, round bodies of fur, Fong’s cat illustrations are full of personality. Without mouths, each character’s emotions are conveyed with expressive, bright eyes, alert ears, and bushy tails that often seem to have a life of their own. In one piece, a cat’s tail appears to have taken the shape of Hokusai’s The Great Wave. In another, a cat looks up in bewilderment at it’s huge poodle-like tail.

You can see more of The Furry Thing series on Instagram, and purchase limited edition prints on Etsy.
