This year I will be participating in the Underwear Affair in honor of my friend Kelley Penneycook. As a fund raising tool, I offered to sculpt custom Lucky Cats for anyone who donated. They were allowed to request any kind of cat they fancied.
I sculpted the cats using Super Sculpey over aluminum foil and wire armatures, painted them with acrylics and sealed them with glossy varnish. I shot the photos with a Canon Rebel and a 50mm lens. The Cupcake Cat was made for my friend Corinne Cupcake. My partner, Stark, made the shrunken head. The Borg Cat, known alternately as Ernest Borg Nine and Borgulus, was made for my friend Tricia, as per her request for a “Star Trek: The Next Generation” cat.
