Cat Calls II is a spoof movie poster the inevitable sequel to a movie about a cat that makes prank and perhaps somewhat inappropriate phone calls. The inspiration for the original Cat Calls happened when I ran across an old dial telephone. I knew I had to do something with it.
But what to do when that image sells out? Make a sequel, of course! Hey, Hollywood does it, why not me?
Cat Calls II: The Redial follows our phone loving cat through another series of misadventures. Or it would, if it were a real movie. It’s really just a picture, so the action is left up to the imagination.
While on my way home from a vacation, I took the sky background in this picture at a rest stop off Interstate 5 near Yreka, California. I really liked the clouds that day. I doctored them a bit in Photoshop to make the colors more dramatic.
Some of the other graphic elements in the picture are the same as in the original Cat Calls. Why mess with a good thing, right? I did change a few things. With the different colors, I think it gives this picture a look all its own.
While sometimes hard to read, some people have told me that the fine print is the best part. They don’t call it fine print for nothing, right? It reads: “May encourage some cats to make prank phone calls, or maybe just have the urge to gnaw on phone cords. Based on the completely unoriginal screenplay, ‘Dial “P” for Purr’ by Anna Thurbadwan.”
So that’s Cat Calls II: The Redial. Will there ever be a Cat Calls III? Stay tuned…
This is a digital illustration done in Photoshop.
Since this is a limited edition, I hand sign and number each Cat Calls II print. I will only produce 50 images in this run.
For ease of framing, the print comes mounted in a 8″ x 10″ archival mat with backing board. I mat all of my prints to standard frame sizes.
I cut my own mats. Depending on what I have in stock, I may vary the mat colors. I always pick something that compliments the artwork. Generally for Cat Calls II I use blue, and that’s what I would recommend. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send me a note and I will try to accommodate you. For Cat Calls II I usually use a single mat. The print itself is about 6″ x 8″, which leaves an approximate 1″ border on the sides and bottom.
Since an unprotected print is vulnerable, an archival clear plastic bag guards against moisture and minor scratches. I recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
