Percy “Pouncer” is a portrait of the pilot of airship 7 of Feline No. 9 Squadron. Percy calls his airship “Lucky Seven” because it’s always brought him and his crew home in one piece. He is shown in his standard issue flight helmet and goggles on a tropical beach as he looks out on the sunset over the sea.
Percy earned his call sign “Pouncer” because he is a crack pilot and an excellent hunter, but it’s rare for him to boast about his talent. He lets his flying speak for itself (and there are never any mice to be seen around an airfield when Percy is in residence). He loves to explore the world, socialize with his squadron mates, and find new places to take naps.
When Percy is not in the cockpit or checking his airship to make sure everything is in tip-top shape, he can usually be found lounging in a sunbeam or at the nearest pub.
The original drawing is done in Prismacolor colored pencils on 2-ply Bristol vellum.
Each Percy “Pouncer” print is hand signed and hand numbered out of a total run of 50. Once they are sold out, no more will be run.
The print comes mounted in a 11″ x 14″ 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 Percy “Pouncer” I usually use a double mat, often with tan or light brown inner border color and a darker brown outer color. A green mat would also work well on this print. Sometimes I use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 9″ x 7″, which leaves an approximate 2″ border on the sides and 2.5″ on the top and bottom.
Prints 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.
