Cat Princess of Mars is a spoof movie poster about an astronaut kitty who goes to Mars and his subsequent adventures with Martian cats. He came. He saw. She conquered.
Some people have told me that the fine print is the best part. It reads: “Due to adult cat themes parental guidance is suggested for cats under six months. Not that any juvenile cats would really want to see this movie anyway. In fact, probably no one wants to see this movie. Based on the new original screenplay, ‘Do Martian Cats Have Green Fur?’ by Korni Schippe.”
This is a hybrid illustration, with parts drawn traditionally with a graphite pencil, and parts done digitally in Photoshop.
Each Cat Princess of Mars artist’s proof is hand signed and numbered. Artist’s proofs are similar to a print but may vary a bit in color or brightness from the regular production prints. Once they are sold out, no more will be run. This is not something I generally send out to shows, so the only place to get one is here on the website.
The print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board. All of my prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
I cut my own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what I have in stock but I always pick something that compliments the artwork. 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 Princess of Mars I usually use a double mat, often with a gold or light tan inner border color and a dark red outer color. Sometimes I use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The artist’s proof itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.
Artist’s proofs are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. I recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
