Spot the cat owner — a silly illo by Ian Gunn

Spot the cat owner

Spot the cat owner

As every cat and dog owner knows, it’s impossible to conceal evidence of your pet. Because your pet will always lovingly mark your clothing. So. Spot the cat owner in this pic.

Silly Illo artist Ian Gunn

Ian Gunn, creator of these silly illos (illustrations), was a much-loved award-winning artist based in Melbourne. Cancer took him from us too soon.

Ian left a legacy including lots of great illustrations. Many of these illustrations are available for sale.

Victoria’s science fiction convention, Continuum, occasionally presents the Ian Gunn Memorial Award recognising the ‘unsung heroes’ of fandom: people consistently working in the background who never expect any recognition of their efforts. This commemorates Ian’s selfless efforts to reach out to others, encouraging others and thereby building the science fiction community.

K’rin Pender-Gunn, Ian’s widow, gave Dark Matter Zine permission to republish Ian’s artwork. Thanks, K’rin!
