Everything about this is fantastic. The print is lovely - just what I was hoping for. Shipping was timely and the customer service was great. I'll be purchasing again!

I'm so in love with my custom pet portrait of my kitty Teddy! Jamie really captured his personality. Teddy approves as well. Thank you!

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 to Meow Parlour, and Look Mum No Hands! in the UK. Our clients include Chronicle Books, Papyrus, and American Greetings among others. When we're not drawing & painting we're riding our bikes, eating waffles and squeezing the neighborhood cats!
