Marian Coleman "Alphabet Cats"

Alphabet Cats is a 12” by 18” frameable poster.  The 26 letters of the alphabet are formed by cats in different positions.  I made each letter as a separate little piece of artwork, then combined them.  The whole process took almost a year.  I was happy when it was done, but I missed the involvement in a long-term project.  Although the kitties were fashioned after our own cat, Peanut, I felt throughout the last year that I had a litter of 26 different cats! 

The poster is perfect for kids, but every adult I know has fallen in love with it.

I’m a self-taught artist, inspired by color and fantasy. My primary medium is ceramics. Many years ago I took a night class in ceramics and fell in love with clay. I’ve been working and experimenting with it for over 30 years. I love the feel and the flexibility of clay, and I love the exquisite luminosity, range and depth of the glaze colors. When I work I try to follow the direction of my heart and my mind and my hands while listening to the voice of the clay.  

In the last few years I've been experimenting with art on the computer.  The artwork for this poster was made entirely in Photoshop.
