"Mungojerrie & Rumpleteaser" (originally "Wildcat & Sheetiger" before the influence of Cats upon me became overwhelming) were the most visually developed, and last, of their kind, the last installment of my "superhero" phase. The drawing above underwaent many reworkings and, thanks to its high frustration quotient, was never quite finished. By the time my skills had improved, I had already moved beyond the concept, and a more feline human -- a refined form of which is "Cat" (short for "Catherine" she was origianlly inspired by the live action Beauty and Beast television program) -- developed out of this pair.
