Bad Bad Pussy

Artwork details: gouache, some graphite pencil, 8.8 x 11.1 inches (22 x 28 cm), 2004.

This is a story of Possession. The last vestiges of the swap that has just occurred can still be seen - the catlike eyes of the girl and her smug, self-satisfied expression are matched by the horror and shock in the overly human 'cat's' face. The transformation is almost complete and soon no one will ever know the truth. I wonder if the little girl deserves her fate? Perhaps she was spiteful to the cat all its life and it's time for revenge? Maybe not...maybe it was always an evil cat.
