That! Pesky! Kitteh!

27 Oct

 

My cat Sparta sometimes hijacks my computer and writes her own blog. This really annoys me because apart from the mucky paw prints on the keyboard, her blogs get about three times as many readers as mine! The CHEEK of it! And she manages to creep into my artwork too. I was working with an artist / model friend to develop this mixed media piece when Sparta, as a kitten, came charging into the room chasing a ball of paper. And ended up in the final piece (detail above).

And here she is again, creeping into a photopolymer plate intaglio print! The little minx! And she’s managed to get into the Winter Show at Oriel Ceri Richards in the Taliesin Centre. Next month. Maybe I’ll make some money out of her – to replace the curtains she shredded. And the rat traps we had to buy to catch the rodents she keeps throwing at my feet. And the toaster that Ming The Merciless (my other kitteh) threw up into. Maybe………

    I actually follow Sparta’s blog. A lot of what she says makes sense to me. Does she draw?

    Beautiful piece, Sparta reminds me of another kitty in that top piece. Think it’s in Cardiff museum. No idea so don’t ask, but there is something there that is wiggling about in my brain 🙂

    The cat’s coat is vivid with the light brown against black!

    Really nice work. Love the diagonal band of brighter colours in between the more muted colours.
