A tattoo commission of the client and her five cats as zombies, and a ton of fun to work on~!
While bleeding catbutts and 7 legged fruit bats are my life’s passion, I seem to end up working on innocent, butthole-less girls very often. For some reason, it appears tween girls are a bit more in demand. I’m not complaining– I enjoy the tween market as well!
This lady is going to be hanging out as a 5 foot tall cutout for the Feltables trade show booth. She’ll be covered in felt embellishments and fashion totes. It will be exciting to see her lifesize!
So the holidays are upon us, and as such I’ve formed a new Christmas-themed obsession-of-the-week: Holiday Cat Sweaters. You might say this has nothing to do with art, but I think these may be an emerging storm in the Fine Art field. Oh wow. These things are amazing.
It all started when a holiday commercial for Walmart came on, featuring a man with an absolutely hideous ice-skating cat sweater.
AMAZING. I immediately decided I must own this sweater. After an exhaustive search on Ebay for “Ice Skating Cat Sweater”, GUESS WHAT.
That’s right. Not only does it exist in real life, but people are willing to pay $50 for it. Now, it may be an investment for the future when it surely skyrockets in value after the Tacky Ugliest Holiday Cat Sweater artform takes off, but I’m not sure I’m willing to make that investment today. That and I don’t see any more available right now. *Bitter tears*
I decided to take a look at the other ugly cat sweaters available during the holiday season, and found quite a few gems! I’m still holding out for a more affordable Ice Skating Cat, but I might settle for one of these in order to have something fantastic to wear on Christmas morning.
So, which one is your favorite?
