Cat is clothes is the genius idea of Artist Heather Mattoon. Recently featuring in FRANKIE magazine Mattoon’s adorable Cats in Clothes series is one for the feline obsessed. All of the kitties she paints have names, occupations and wear cool clothes just like their keepers.
Take George for example; George is quiet, loves science, especially quantum theory, and feels that doctors should be more forthcoming with health advice despite the influence of the pharmaceutical companies. (pretty insightful for a feline wouldn’t you say?)
Mattoon describes herself as a visual artist who spends lots of hertime in physical and sprirtual therapy since an accident 4 years ago which left her a paraplegic.
Mattoon has 3 cats Megan, Mama-Mia and Edgar who are her inspiration and who each have their own quirky personalities.
“We should be more like cats: soulful, stylish, and entirely unconcerned with others’ opinions” Mattoon says. Cats in Clothes bring something lively and optimistic that surpasses a meditative tone. Sure, cats are lost in thought sometimes but they’re also very stylish.
The series share a unique mix of playful and strict with realistic details in soft brush strokes enlivened by human like expressions and custom outfits.
Savannah is a city girl, feminine and fierce! She takes kick-boxing classes and works as a wine buying consultant.
Mattoon’s next series will be called Dogs in Clothes and Sausage & Sanchez can’t wait to see it finished. But for now here is one to wet the palatte.
