Sleeping Cat
My goal for this illustration was to create a sleeping cat from the shape of a circle, in my minimalist style. Through my ideation stage I drew 28 different variations of this cat – from sketching to vector illustrations. After my executions, I decided to challenged myself and take my top two illustrations (left) and develop a simple gif animation with minimal frames.

Is this cat yawning or meowing… maybe both?
