La Sardina Wardrobe Artist — Mandycat's La Sardina DIY

Having artworks published on various newspapers and magazines, Mandycat despite being an illustrator and a full-time cartoonist, she is also madly in love with cats. No wonder we always see cats in her work. Her La Sardina DIY is no exception too..

1. First, could you briefly tell us about the theme of your La Sardina DIY ? What’s the concept behind this?
The theme is wait and protect love.

Actually there isn’t any specific concept, when I accepted this La Sardina DIY project, my mind was already telling me that cats love fish cans! I have three cats at home, this time my eldest son Michael would be in the picture, he would be waiting and protecting the can, and waiting for me to open this sardine can (LOL).

*2. Where do you usually get your inspiration? *
Life, cats at home, families and friends, memories, sky, ocean, nature, cities, noises, laughter..

*3. If you were to give this to your favourite artist, who would it be? Why? *
Feng Zi-kai.

He liked cats too, but the main reason is that I like his works that are simple, refreshing and poetic. So i would let him and the cats to chew and taste slowly the Sardina, hopefully he would get to create some interesting works.

4. Could you share some tips or thoughts with all the DIY newbies?
There isn’t anything special for me, I always try things out when they come to my mind. From there, you could find your own character. I had also painted some colours on the camera, and then wiped it away, and restarted.
But don’t be afraid, just be brave!

5. For whom or which place would you like to use your La Sardina DIY for pictures taking?
Hopefully for people with love, cats, ocean, sunset, nature, and any touching moments. Also, for a place without greed, but only love and peace.
