The feline adventurers Deborah Julian lives with in her own New York apartment are models and inspiration for the art that goes into making her cat prints. Their antics and especially their efforts to engage become universal models for the behavior cat lovers recognize in their own pets. She aspires to imitate the artfulness ingrained in their lives in all of these offered for sale.
For the cheese shop cat print shown on the left, an illustration from her cat book Travels With George: New York, Sam, George and Billy all get into the act. George and Bily, in their tour of New York, have been taken for a walk on Arthur Avenue in The Bronx, New York's real Little Italy. Sam plays the cheese shop cat, determined to prevent the visiting cats from sharing any of his beloved pecorino romano.
For Deborah's popular collection of cat prints, Famous Artists' Cats, she came up with the idea while reflecting on the trouble she always has getting her work done with cats in the workshop. Her cats insist on "helping," inspecting and otherwise getting involved. An art history graduate, she wondered what it would be like if some of her favorite famous artists had her cats. Matisse, Van Gogh, Degas and others ended up with cats in their work. Check them out as classy, unexpected gifts for cat lovers.
Joining the collection of cat prints are designs originally developed as illustrations for two cat books. George tells the story of traveling with Billy and their people to Paris and around the popular tourist spots in New York. Chat Noir, from this collection, is currently her most popular cat print.
