pepito mimumo: portraits of an ancient cat

for my 30th birthday last month, my boyfriend brenden made me a really special beautiful & huge hardcover book full of amazing portraits of one of my cats pepito mimumo.  over quite a few months he managed to wrangle a bunch our very talented friends to draw pepito inspired art.  here it is!... and it looks even better in person.  oh, and as a super extra added bonus, i'm get to keep some of the original pieces of art, and i'm going to make prints of the rest of the portraits and put them up on my cat wall (formerly known as the front hallway).
