Everyone who knows me knows I absolutely adore kitty cats!

For me, cats are like pussy – I can never eat just one.

Uh… I mean… like pussy, cats taste great.

No… um… cats are soft and furry and wet, just like a good pussy.

Er wait…..

Clearly, I’m a little unhinged today…  Just as I was the night I created this purrr-fect piece of pussycat portraiture.

When I began creating graphic art works I knew I wanted to showcase serious, motivational pieces (like Relentless), but I also knew I wanted to show off my sassy silly side.  After all, life is short!  What good would it be without levity?

That was the hedonistic inspiration for this piece:  Lust and laughter.  Pussy and cats.

Life is better with healthy doses of each.


My pet name for the cat in this piece is “Milo.”

The Piece:

PussyCat is a bold, in-your-face piece that commands attention. I find the vibrant colors and Milo’s piercing yellow eyes to be riveting – especially when contrasted against the stark, ultra-white background.


I think PussyCat’s beauty is more than skin deep.  And I think the piece has more to tell us than we might realize.

When I first finished the piece, I remember being surprised how effectively Milo’s hypnotic stare communicates interest and longing.  He wants it and he wants it bad!  He’s mesmerized by the thought of it.  At that frozen moment, nothing else matters to him.  And I think Milo is teaching us a critical life lesson… “Eyes on the Prize.”

I say it to myself every single day, like a mantra…  “Eyes on the Prize. Eyes on the Prize.”

Say it with me… “Eyes on the Prize.” 

Peer into PussyCat’s radiant yellow eyes and say it with him… “Eyes on the Prize.”

In his own adorable way, Milo is teaching us about focus and determination.  He’s teaching us how to get whatever we want in life. 

So whatever Prize you seek – pleasure or plenitude – don’t be a pussy. Be a PussyCat instead. Roll up your sleeves, focus all your strength, energy, and desire on obtaining that Prize – and it shall be yours.
