LOVED this! Such a great gift for the majority of cat owners since this seems to happen to a lot of them! Super funny and shipped fast. Would definitely order from here again.

About

Bent Whisker

Bent Whisker is a side project of illustrations created by Twin Cities artist Kara Hendershot. It began with a few small drawings that were originally created for a local Art Vending Machine at Altered Esthetics Gallery as the first illustrations of the Satirical Social Commentary series. The series evolved and continues to produce new comical characters.

Current series of works by Bent Whisker:

Satirical Social Commentary
This series is a playful social commentary that uses satire to touch on the desperately contagious trends of our culture within society today, and the absurdity of the labels that people place upon one another.

The Passive-Aggressive Minnesota T-shirt
To people who live in Minnesota, this shirt design speaks for itself. It is based on a spontaneous drawing that Josh Methven, Kara’s fiance, created one day after a long shift at a retail job. Frustrated at the passive-aggressive behavior of certain customers that he encountered on a daily basis, Josh drew this little logo on a piece of paper and called it the Minnesota State Flag. It hung on the fridge for a while until one day Kara suggested printing it on T-shirts. She re-formatted the drawing into a screen design, and handed it to a local screen printer who hand screen prints each shirt.

Damn Cats
Kara and Josh have two cats, Oliver and Emma. This makes their lives filled with endless humorous stories of cats vomiting on personal possessions, getting caught in curtains, and inevitably finding new ways to piss off their ‘parents’. All the more material for humorous cat illustrations.
