I designed my 'Street Cat' monoprint using a cardboard stencil which I first drew then cut out with a scalpel. I love the bold graphic quality achieved by working in this way. To give 'Street Cat' a lived in dirty look I added a bit of smudgy black ink to his face because he's been living on the streets for some time now, but by the look on his face he has adjusted well to his surroundings. I would imagine 'Street Cat' is very well known in his neck of the woods.
