Louis Wain: Boy's Own Illustrator

The artist Louis Wain - famous for his pictures of cats - was a regular illustrator in the early years of the Boy's Own Paper. Some of these pictures are less well known than his later works, some don't even feature cats! In later years Louis is believed to have developed schizophrenia and his pictures became in many cases what we would today think of as psychedelic (well, I would, but I know precious little about art).

Anyway, here I present some Boy's Own works of Louis Wain.
