Marija Tiurina is a game designer by day and illustrator by night. She recently teamed up with NeonMob to depict the Seven Deadly Sins with internet’s favorite animal – cats. According to Marija, “Deadly sins are quite symbolic and interesting. But Google search shows you only boring fantasy art, and pretty much the same style of drawings is repeat on every page of search results. I thought that the topic deserves another chance.” She was apparently bored with all the usual depictions and decided to create her own feline version. The Seven Deadly Catsins are accompanied by little poems to describe them. Here’s the one that starts off the series:
“The Bible doth spell seven sins of death,
But as a feline in this mortal realm,
There is one more to know before you rest,
Read on, to pilot your soul with its helm.“
