Billy is an ocelot that lives in a cat sanctuary in England. The photograph I used as a reference to draw Billy was taken by Alannah Hawker who I've collaborated with several times and hope to do more. I especially love the glassiness of the eye and how the whiskers reach forward. If you've ever owned a cat - you've seen that any time they are about to pounce there whiskers all move forward. Ocelots aren't much bigger than a good size house cat but they are wild to the core.
