Anastasia Melnicova is an Illustrator from Moscow where she gives human-like qualities to a very feminine feline in her colorful cat illustrations. There is no doubt about it, cats get a lot of attention and the title of the images, ‘Everybody wants to be a cat’ is not far from the truth.

Within the pop-art-like images, a kitty wears a tightly fitted dress highlighting her curves. The cat begs for attention, as pets do, and is patted by a man in a suit. The photos demonstrate "anthropomorphism" where animals are given human-like qualities, but Melnicova shows this in an artistic fashion.

Bright colors are used where black shadows are added to create that pop-art effect. These colorful cat illustrations comment on the cat craze and also reveal that people love attention just as much as our pets do. Stats for Surrealist Pop Kitty Illustrations Trending: Older & Warm
