Tut’s Cat is a spoof horror movie poster about a cat mummy. Of course ancient Egyptians did actually mummify cats, so maybe this isn’t so far fetched? Hmm…
Work with me here. King Tut had a special cat. The cat was mummified along with the king, and thus also part of the legendary curse. When they opened the vault, well, mayhem ensued. And cuteness.
Some people have told me that the fine print is the best part. It reads: “May cause kittens to develop an irrational fear of cloth strips, underground vaults, and pyramid-shaped objects. Based on The new original screenplay, ‘Anubis had a cat’ by Disrelli sechs.”
This is a digital illustration done in Photoshop.
Each Tut’s Cat print is hand signed and hand numbered out of a run of 50. This one is getting close to being sold out, so if you want one, don’t wait. Once they are sold out, no more will be run.
The print comes mounted in a 8″ x 10″ 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. Generally for Tut’s Cat I use a rusty orange color to compliment the background, 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 Tut’s Cat 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.
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.
