Ainars from Latvia is the man behind DailyPurrr, a cat drawing series. The artist started doing these drawings about four years ago, making one drawing for each day. “Everything started with a simple idea to make ‘stupid cat portraits’ which was recorded in my notebook and left there for a few months. One day I was checking my notes, came across it and thought that I should give it a try. That’s how dailypurrr started. First drawings were made without cat photo reference besides drawing and that concept was a bit weak in my opinion, after I started to add photos, everything changed and account got its current form,” explained Ainars when reached out by Earthwonders.
To get inspired for the next drawing the artist always scrolls on the internet looking for some silly cat photos, which potentially can be turned into a drawing. When photo is picked (and that’s the hardest part), Ainars moves to Photoshop and starts drawing. It usually takes from 5 to 30 minutes to finish it. Drawings are really simple, but there’s a lot of small nuances.
DailyPurr has quite a big fanbase. So far the Instagram page counts 644k followers. The artist explains that there are a lot of people who tell him that these silly cat drawings make their days better and helps them to deal with a bad mood. “A lot of people are waiting for my drawings everyday to share them with family and closest ones. There’s also one interesting moment, that people always try to guess how actual cat will look on photo after they swipe my drawing.”
