“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Speaking of cats; it's amazing how alike yet unalike cats are from tigers/lions, etc. They share common ancestory and are from the same family tree, but boy are they different when it comes to ferociousness and cuddliness. :-)

Great illustration, Eric!
