About

"Brevity is the essence of wit."

Welcome to The Dancing Cat!
http://www.etsy.com/shop/jamieshelman
We graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006 and have studied around the world from Rome to Australia to St. Petersburg Russia and Paris, France but more importantly we love the thought that our work can make someone happy even if just for a moment and possibly redirect their day or their lives in a positive direction. Tom and I, regardless of the black realities of the world that surrounds us, never pass thru a day without finding something ridiculous enough to make us laugh to the point of tears. As your art doctors we would like to prescribe a dose of this levity to you! From haute couture to bloated cats our medicine cabinet has just what you need! We are the cure all snake oil of the modern world!

What they're saying about us:
I am a collector of happy things. When I saw this on Etsy this morning I knew that I needed it. $25 for something that will improve the way I feel every time I see it? $25 for something that holds the promise of peace (because who could ever argue with their husband or their mother in the presence of a cat proudly modeling his rainbow toe socks?) and harmony in my home? I hit the buy button so fast that I gave myself a little neck spasm.
