Caz the cat and Dec the dog – introduction

To introduce you to Caz & Dec I thought I’d start with a description of what they look like. These are the illustration briefs I completed:


  • Caz is a female American Silver Tabby American Shorthair Cat. She is anthropomorphic and stands, walks and moves like a human but still has a long fluffy-tail.

  • Dec is a male Alaskan malamute. He is anthropomorphic and stands, walks and moves like a human but still has a long fluffy-tail.


There are more details regarding proportions, colouring and that sort of thing but hopefully the above shall paint a picture in your head. But if not here are a couple of sketches for you.



As it happens and to be expected my idea of what Caz and Dec look like is already changing. I love these sketches, but they are very “flat” and to translate better into a dynamic superhero like cartoon I have realised they need more facial definition.


Where are their bodies? Well, I have sketched them out but there’s not too much too it. The current idea is for them to be “bobble-head” like, with heads out of proportion with their bodies. Let’s see how that idea finalises itself. I imagined them with human-like bodies because of the actions and adventures that they would have to take. In a world of imagination and make believe whether they walk like humans or quadrupeds hardly mattered. But with a mind to toy creation I figured get them upright could help, so now they walk among us!


More about our exciting duo in the next post. Thanks for reading and please drop a comment should you have any questions 😊
