IF: Talisman - Money Cat

Who doesn't love this cute little talisman money cat? Otherwise known as Maneki Neko "Beconing Cat" being a symbol of prosperity, fortune in business and general good luck. He is convienently saved at 1024 x 768 to download as a wallpaper freebie, just for you! I was inspired to illustrate money cat from two figurines that were given to me by my Dad, and my very best friend. May he bring you inexhaustable good fortune!

Excellent job Cynthia! I love the way you handled the background. I get such a kick out of this because I see this little cat at so many Asian restaurants that I go to here in Los Angeles.
