Cards for the moderately crazy cat lover.

The Dancing Cat features the modern and distinct cat art of Rhode Island School of Design graduate Jamie Shelman. Founded in 2008 (while living between NYC and Martha's Vineyard), our shop seeks to capture and share our love of fat cats and good design. Inspired by their fat plump shapes and seal like bodies, we've found cats to be the perfect form of self expression. From cats doing 'cat things' to more human activities, our art hopes to capture & stir the same love and passion for cats & art that you experience, often in a whimsical or unique manner. We hope you can recognize your cat, or yourself in our pictures! :D

Our work can be found online and in shops worldwide from Paper Source and Urban Outfitters to Meow Parlour NYC, and WHSmith in the UK. Our clients include Chronicle Books, Papyrus, and American Greetings among others. And look for our new book 'Life Lessons I Learned From My Cat' recently published by Michael O'Mara Books in the UK and coming to the US in 2019.

When we're not drawing & painting we're riding our bikes, eating waffles and squeezing the neighborhood cats! To find out more about us visit our website www.jamieshelman.com
