Meowie Christmas Black Cat Canvas Tote
I'm a big fan Hotline Ink, the Etsy shop run by Austin, Texas based screen-printers, Jess and Ian. I first featured their awesome Mayan Laser Caturday and Tangram Kitty tees and totes back in April, and now they're back with a whimsical holiday design, featuring a super handsome black kitty named Gorgeous George!
I asked Jess to give me the scoop on the real-life feline inspiration behind the rad holiday bag (and shirt!), and here's what she had to say:
George started life in a barn nestled in central Texas. He had big dreams of being a model, and luckily was rescued by designers. He moved to Austin and started out with a couple of photo shoots before he got his big break as the model for Hotline Ink's Meowie Christmas design. When he isn't shooting on location, George spends his free time snuggling and sleeping at home. He's always up for a game of laser pointer or tag, and says it helps him keep his figure!
