Carpet Cats - Silk-Screened Art Print on Fabric
- SILK-SCREENED ART PRINT ON FABRIC
- Original artwork drawn and silk screened in Calgary AB, Canada
- 16" x 20"
Ok, the idea for this one started out as a friendly gang of cats flying around on their magic carpets, and that's basically still what it is, except that a couple of the "cats" kind of morphed into other creatures a bit. The middle guy has a kind of a foxy face, and the bottom guy reminds me of a Frida Kahlo bunny. But they still all have cat-like tails, so who knows what's going on. I drew it and I don't...

All of the fabrics used for the prints are vintage or reclaimed fabrics that are sourced from a magical fabric sale that happens once a year in Calgary organized by the charity Ujamaa Grandmas. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, with most fabrics going for $1/metre, and all proceeds going to the charity. It's honestly one of my favourite days of the year and has led to me having a large and cherished collection of amazing fabrics. Because they are purchased second hand, I cannot be sure of the fabric contents.
