There is a history behind this drawing and the title, several years ago I had a cat who wasn't exactly an angel, her name was Toxic, (which is a whole other story).  I doodled her with horns and a tail and then added a fire and brimstone background, to create a small cat by a very large fire.  This image stayed with me and I found myself updating it one year for Halloween.   


During a holiday to Portland Bill (South of England) we had some glorious sunsets that put me in mind of the Halloween image and matching it with a much bigger cat I decided to re use the title, this time with Maya the black jaguar in front of the biggest fire I could find, the setting sun.


Maya lives at The Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent.
