Artist Statement:

As the wise old cat was heard to say:

"If life is a bowl of cherries, can I have a second bowl?"

This is the second image taken from the book, The Last Cat Book (1984), in which Kuper illustrates an essay on the value and nature of cats by Robert E.Howard, an American author best known for his character Conan the Barbarian.

The original 49 prints were carved from linoleum blocks, then printed by hand by the artist. Each image was only printed once or twice and never editioned. We have chosen to reproduce a few of these linoleum prints using serigraphy (silkscreen). This image of Fat Cat was printed on top of a split fountain background on archival rag paper.

As with ALL Buddha Cat editions, EVERYTHING was printed BY HAND!

This print will be release on January 28th, 2011 at 12 NOON!
