Perfect for the kitty cat lover! Tails Up! features the jaunty Smiling Cat walking away, her tail curved in a self-possessed pussy cat pose.

I made this black and white linocut (linoleum block print) when I lost the Smiling Cat earlier this year. I liked the image of her little cat butt jauntily walking off into the unknown to her next home, her curved cat tail showing her ever-inquisitive nature. I like to call it "The Smiling Cat Has Left the Building."

This relief print was hand carved-into a linoleum block and hand-pulled without the benefit of a printing press which has created backgrounds of various textures. This one is mostly black while the second one shown in the photos shows an unknown that is a little more amorphous:

The image is 5"x7", printed with black and white oil-based Speedball ink creating a dark gray/grey ink on archival Pentalic paper that is approximately 6"x9". It would look great in a black or white mat and framed for your wall.

The print is signed and numbered by the artist (me!) in an edition of 30. The print will be shipped flat in a plastic sleeve and protected to keep it from bending.

Note: Copyright is retained by the artist. Print does not come matted or framed.
