Alana McCarthy's Profile

About

Hello! I'm Alana McCarthy, an illustrator from Toronto, Canada. I live here with my hubby, two kids and cat Pumpkin. I've been painting these geeky paintings since I created a Christmas card featuring two of my cats, Luna and Bacon. The popularity of the image drove me to paint some superhero cats and so started GeekyPet. I've been travelling around to comic conventions selling my prints and meeting a lot of fabulous people. I thought I would finally try selling my work on Etsy. So glad to be here!
