Illustrated Superhero Cats Just as Lazy as Real Cats

What if Darth Vader played with a ball of string? Would he be as menacing? Probably not. And, as we see in Chinese illustrator A Ke’s work, he is most definitely not.

Ke’s series re-imagines cats in popular culture. We see the video game character Mario (Maricat) has been replaced with a rotund domestic short hair. And Issac Newton (Issac Newcat) isn’t crafting any theories by just rolling around. 

I like Ke’s style of drawing, and I also enjoy that these cats are just being cats, dressed up in different costumes. They are still delightfully lazy. We think of superheroes like Batman as someone who answers call to actions. Here? Not so much.
