My favourite breeds of cat: British Shorthair Cat, Persian Cat and Birman Cat…

I don’t have any cats, although I would love one! My neighbourhood already has a huge cat population so adding more to the territory warfare doesn’t seem like a good idea. My house isn’t currently set up to be a safe cat home either, but one day this will change and I intend to adopt a cat then, and it doesn’t have to be one of my favourite breeds either. I know there are lots of cats out there who need a loving home from the humble moggie through to more exotic felines…

But for the purposes of art, I can pick any breeds I like to illustrate, I’m particularly fond of the larger breeds with longer hair and stocky builds, with lots of personality… here are my three illustrated cats, I’d like to introduce them to you.

British Shorthair – Laid back, cuddly cat loves human company, this particular kitty cat is also very inquisitive and friendly too.

Persian Cat © Nicola L Robinson 2014 Cat art print, cat decor, cat gift for cat lover cat greeting card cat art to buy www.teethandclaws.co.uk

Persian Cat © Nicola L Robinson 2014

Persian Cat – generally a calm and gently cat who enjoys being pampered, this particular specimen is somewhat stubborn and grumpy, but still has a heart of gold, providing he gets his own way, which he does most of the time.

Birman Cat © Nicola L Robinson 2014 Cat art print, cat decor, cat gift for cat lover cat greeting card cat art to buy www.teethandclaws.co.uk

Birman Cat © Nicola L Robinson 2014

Birman cat – sweet, intelligent, playful and gentle, a truly beautiful and ancient breed of cat. This long haired beauty is an elegant cat and would love to find a home in a little girl’s bedroom or any cat lover’s home.

All my cats are available as signed 10 x 8 inch prints, a set of three 8 x 6 inch prints and as cat greeting cards too.  Cat’s at www.teethandclaws.co.uk

Also available in my Etsy shop too – Teeth and Claws on Etsy – Cats

If anyone is looking to add a cat to their household I urge you to visit your local animal shelter or cat rescue centre to adopt one of the many needy animals from there.

Nursery art prints for a dragon themed nursery…

When I started my illustrated brand of prints and cards I hadn’t really given a huge amount of thought to where my illustrated beasties would end up, beyond possibly with other people like myself who appreciate things with a little bit of bite, the ones who like the ever so slightly more dangerous animals, like bears and sharks and my personal favourite, crocodiles 🙂

As my range of illustrated art prints grows I have found many of my critters have gone to lovely new homes in nursery’s and children’s bedrooms. I’ve sent lots of little colourful dinosaurs out to as far away as Australia, Canada and Finland to be part of dinosaur themed nurseries for little boys (although I must add dinosaurs are equally fantastic wall art for little girls too, there are no gender stereotypes here)

However my most popular collection so far are my dragon art prints, so far a set of 6 in total. Initially featuring my original dragon illustrations of a green dragon, a blue dragon, a red dragon and a golden Chinese dragon, and later this summer joined by a lovely purple dragon and fearsome silver dragon too.

I’ve always loved dragons, I’ve been drawing them since I was a small child and am still drawing them today, nearly 30 years later. I’m thrilled to send my dragon art prints out to new homes all around the world, for both adults and children, and nursery walls too.

I don’t remember my nursery and I haven’t decorated one myself however I know if I did a dragon themed one would probably be my first choice…

So, if you’re decorating a nursery or looking for a special gift to give to a child or new baby, consider a dragon. My dragons are all very well behaved, and housetrained too. They won’t leave hair all over your carpets or require taking for walks or other ongoing maintenance like food, grooming or vet bills. They will just sit around looking lovely, as nursery decor should do.

My dragon art prints are just as happy as wall art in a little boy’s room or as decor in a little girls room (or fully grown adult’s room too).

My dragon art prints are available as individual 8 x 10 inch (20cm x 25cm) prints, some are A4.

Every dragon print is personally signed and dated by me, they make lovely scaly gifts.

My dragon art prints are available to buy from my art print shop here –

Now, I hope you’ll forgive the lack of teeth or claws on these buzzy little guys, but I’ve been inspired to draw some bee’s lately and thought they’d make a lovely addition to my shop of beasties and other critters. So, to welcome the bees I’ve introduced a new category here at Teeth and Claws too… Bugs 🙂 Hopefully more to come soon…

In the meantime here are my new Summer Bee’s, if you’d like to know a little more about them do buzz on over to my illustration blog here – Nicola’s Illustration Blog – Bee’s

I’ve been busy working on some more scaly beasties of late and am very excited to finally be able to share them with you here on the Teeth and Claws blog! Snake prints.

I’ve been meaning to draw some snakes for ages, I’ve always liked them and I think they really fit my aesthetic and ongoing range of slightly dangerous, but beautiful animals, however I’m also very aware of the common phobia a lot of people have of snakes having grown up with family members affected by it, so I have hesitated somewhat in introducing them to my work. I obviously don’t want to stop people visiting my shop for any reason! (I promise I won’t be drawing any realistic looking spiders or angry snakes, haha)

I’ve tried to approach the snake as more of a tribal patterned design than a potentially threatening being, and I hope my snake prints reflect this. Snakes, though sometimes dangerous are still very beautiful creatures… Here are my snakes… one red and one green-

Badger…. badger, badger, badger…. illustrated art print :)

I’ve been busy drawing in pen and ink again and conjured up this gruff little character… I’ve always loved badgers, they seem to have such personality. My badger is a bit grumpy, and doesn’t take kindly to being disturbed from reading his book. Who can blame him?

He is also available as a striking signed 10 x 8 inch print from my shop – Teeth and Claws. He gets on rather well with my Wise Owl too…

Last year I did a series of pen and ink owl illustrations, one of my favourites was this imposing fellow- my monocled Eagle Owl! I’m excited to say he is now available from my little shop of beasties as a beautiful black and white art print. My owl print measures 8 by 10 inches in size. Prints are unframed and signed and dated on the reverse.

All dragons are housetrained and (mostly) harmless. Unsure as of yet how they may get on with existing pets and very small children.
