Holiday Greetings From My Creative Cats: Meowy Cats Mess

Meowy Cats Mess

This is a linoleum block print I designed to use for my 1996 holiday card. Busy little stylized kitties in spots, stripes and solids climb and run through the words.

I usually use white or cream rice paper with gold and silver flecks to print this, but that background didn’t scan very well so I’ve left it out. I often sell this as limited edition framed holiday print and also sell limited edition greeting cards, but I’ve given it a break this year while I’m reorganizing my block-printing area.

Printed in a color other than red or green (like black on white), it works for an all-year image, as I noticed when I forgot to take down the print I had made for myself as a sample. It’s always a meowy cat’s mess around here.
