Cat & Fish Linocut Print

Gorgeous and cheeky work by artist Catherine Cronin. The proof that what appears simple can explode with character and mischief. Love this piece!

Cat Among the Pigeons Press

I printed this cheeky pair recently; not my usual style, what do you think?

Traditional Japanese art and cats

I love both. Traditional Ukiyo-e Japanese art, waterbased inks and  block-printing technique – something that definitely inspired me since a young age, and something I plan on practicing a lot more and soon.

And cats! I love all sorts of pets, and cats are funny, and very inspiring.

This is an article on the exhibition Life of Cats – there is also a link to a virtual tour of the art.

Cats and Japanese block-printing ukuyo-e prints

Do you have any favourites? I’m intrigued by the relations between humans and pets, and art is a beautiful way to explore it.
