Ginger Kitten by Sebastiano Ranchetti
You might consider Joe Dawson Jr. my comrade in cool cat art. However, instead of just writing about it, Joe actually creates his own designs, and is responsible for curating one of the most impressive collections of modern feline art on the web.
Catference Call by Joe Dawson Jr.
Dawson's site, the colorfully named Pussies on Parade, is a repository of feline finery - or rather, an online gallery and shop featuring feline art from designers and artists around the world. The Chicago-based designer/avid cat fan says that his obsession with feline art started in 2008 when he purchased Cathy Peng's “White Fluffy Cat” print at a local shop. Since then, he's kept his whiskers alert, both online and off, for quirky, unique and fun kitty creations.

I'm continually impressed by PoP's awesome art finds, many of which are also available for sale in the Pussies on Parade shop. In addition to limited edition prints and one-of-a-kind works of art by Catsparella favorites like Daphne Sivetidis, Cathy Peng, Ohara Hale, and The Medium Control, you'll also find a hip selection of apparel, jewelry, home goods & stationary, and toys & treats that are sure to delight the special cat lover in your life.

Also, if you're on the hunt for cat-themed graphics to liven up your laptop or mobile device, may I suggest Pussies on Parade's top-notch selection of free wallpapers? Truth be told, I'm currently displaying CatsNPumpkins in honor of Halloween!
