Hello Agents and Happy Holidays! I hope you all get to enjoy this wonderful IFS weekend! This months artist is Yacyan from Wuhan, China!

How long have you been playing?
Since 2014!

What inspired you to submit your piece to the contest?
I love cats, have two at home, and love the game. So, i thought i’d combine stuff i love- Kitty + Ingress item, and here it is!

Is there anything about your artwork you want people to know?
The cats in the artwork are based on my lovely cats, with each of them featuring an Ingress item for the IFS theme.

Is there a website where people can see your artwork or other artwork you like to show?
This is my personal channel featuring my photos and artworks. You’re more than welcome to subscribe:

Yacyans Channel

Are there any details you would like to share about your craft? 
This artwork is created with Photoshop, my usual method is watercolor paints.

Do you plan to make swag of it?
Yes, I drew 12 cats and these are only 2 of them. I intend to make a 2022 calendar with all of them.

Is it ok if agents use your image in their Virtual IFS Group photos?

These two kitties are absolutely adorable I just want to pet them! Please give the cats in realy life extra pets from all of us. I look forward to seeing the other cats you have drawn and hopefully get this calendar you are making! Thank you so much for participating in the competition and doing this interview! Agents, if you would like to get the media for this artwork join an IFS event this weekend and help decode your puzzle!
