Additional Details

The drawing is based on Gorey's series of ballet cats from "New York Kitty Ballet," a group of 3 images developed for the New York City Ballet's promotional merchandising. Accompanying the "I Love Cats" drawing are two images from the series (a single kitty en pointe, and a totem of 6 dancers) each printed as a faint positive on tracing paper as well as a set printed on thick paper stock. A third image, a Pas de Deux, is not included.
