Sometimes love is just two catsharks cuddling on the soft white sand
Alright, time to re-vitalise this thing. XD
I’ve kinda dropped tumblr (again) 😅 and am mainly posting on Instagram under the username jillustrations - sadly, on tumblr, someone else already has that name. Sigh~
Upcoming, art dump deluxe 😅
Im starting with a series of drawings I did for a combination of Mermay and Misadventuremay in 2018 - which, of course, I didn’t complete till, like, September. But hey! At least I finished it! XD
Here are the first 6. They’re a little more all over the place stylistically than the follow ups, since I hadn’t at that point yet decided to go with a more unified style of illustration, you’ll see what I mean. ;)
If you want to know more about the individual pieces and what the prompts were, head on over to my Instagram (jillustrations)
Much Love ♥️
So, this morning, I awake to a frantic message from my friend @happygrasssmell with a sinister picture. It is a photoshopped image of a cat face on a shark body.
Now, most probably think, “Alright, and?”
The problem is that I, MANY YEARS AGO, dreamt of a cursed creature and drew it out for all to see, creating what I call Cat Shark
I AM COMPLETELY ENRAGED THAT MY CURSED CREATION WAS SOMEHOW LEAKED AND NOW SOMEONE ELSE CLAIMS MY CHILD. IT IS OUTRAGEOUS TO SAY THE LEAST
I just thought I would share that story with everyone. Also, thoughts on whether I should patent my other awful creations as to not go through this again?????
And here it is, the grand finale of my 2017 Summer Collection–a collection in and of itself–of cat-sharks!
Cat-sharks are a type of small, harmless-to-humans shark composed of many different species, with a few similarities–the structures of their fins, their basic physiology and, most noticably, their huge eyes, which have eerie, cat-like pupils that go diagonally.
For the die-hard Beatles fans seeing this collection who’ve already seen my Sgt. Pepper shark, I actually sneaked another reference to the band in this picture–these playful young cat-sharks are having fun in an octopus’s garden, in the shade! The octopus (whose name is Marvard) isn’t too happy about it, though.
But let’s not focus on him–let’s focus on what these sharks are doing–after all, it isn’t Octopus Week.
From left to right: Toto, the aquamarine Pyjama Shark, is taking a nap in a little sand pile. Next to him, Panthy the purple Leopard Cat-shark has taken advantage of Luna the orange Swell-shark’s ability to swell so that he could play a game of ball with Rita the chartreuse Chain Cat-shark, who would have preferred to use a smaller ball. Cora the magenta Coral Cat-shark is using a coral branch to roll her friend Eddie the blue Puff-adder Shy-shark like a hula hoop. And finally (because Marvard himself paid me in sea-money to include him in the description), Marvard the rain-bow octopus is harumphing his beak off and shaking his shovel at the mischievous sharks who may or may not ruin his beautiful garden. (Fun fact: real octopi actually do build fancy “gardens” out of shells, rocks, and found objects!)
And here’s another fun fact: this picture was originally conceived in 2017, and was intended to be posted that year. Due to the size of the project, I set it aside until the next year, 2018, when I came up with the fun idea to draw and post special extra additions to the last year’s collection, called Summer Sequels, along with the actual collection of the current year.
Well, I hope you all enjoyed this fun, festive and intricate addition to my pixel shark collection! And I’ll say it once more before the week is over–happy Shark Week from the team at Ekaki No Mi!
What if kittens could one hit kill sharks and we didn’t even know it? Imagine a kitten out for a little dip on a hot summer spring just above the marianas trench and a shark swims at him, kitten counter attacks. BOOM! *shark fucking dies and floats to bottom of ocean* Kitten treads back to shore thousands of miles away. Kitten takes the dub.
This filetail catshark – found at a depth of 470 meters in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary – is indeed 100 percent shark. However, it has light-sensitive eyes similar to that of cats, which helps it hunt for fish and squid in the deep, dark waters that it lives in.

I like cat. I like shark. CATSHARK! SHARKCAT! WHO CARES?!
Aw dang that’s one fancy lil guy
A bit late posting the first image, but meet Croissant the catshark, who’s become something of a mascot for my Twitch channel. He’s a mix of a Blacktip Reef Shark and a Scottish Fold.
I cant tell you how excited I am to finally have my @blackmooncosmetics highlighter! I got it in Cat Shark and it’s the most gorgeous shimmering purple ever! Thank you BMC!

The Striped, catshark extracts aragonite from sea salt to build a series of mirrors on the back of its eyes. This allows it to see 10x better than humans underwater in low light.
