Eyes of the Cat Illustration

Eyes of the Cat Illustration is a newly-formed illustration studio, founded by Devin Mawdsley, rooted in Chicago. Our work focuses primarily on sequential arts--original graphic novels, as well as illustration/editorial cartoons and album/single art. EoC's vision is to create works that capture and reflect the wonders and horrors of the human condition, to tell compelling stories, both fiction and non-fiction, historical as well as future-facing. Our production is characterized by its acuity and precision, and we have collaborated with musicians, playwrights and directors, as well as educators and urban planners.
Our breakout graphic novel-No Small Plans-a collaboration with the Chicago Architecture Foundation, has received critical praise from architecture critic Blair Kamin, The New Yorker, Salon, The Chicago Reader, Chicago Magazine, City Lab (The Atlantic), to name a few, and it is currently being used as instructional material within a nascent Urban Planning curriculum being developed by CAF and Chicago Public Schools.
