Krazy Kat and a worm
£ 40.00 – £ 74.00
Krazy Kat encounters a worm. I love it. Simple and surreal. The original was black and white. I’ve added colour to the sky.
Krazy Kat is an invention of American cartoonist George Herriman – many subsequent cartoonists have listed him as an influence.
The two characters are the rather stupid Krazy Kat and his much brighter mouse friend Ignatz, who secretly despises him although Krazy never realises this even though he’s always having bricks lobbed at his head.
The strip ran from 1913 to 1944. It first appeared in the New York Evening Journal owned by William Randolph Hearst.
Handmade, limited edition screen print on cotton paper, mould-made at the St Cuthbert Mill in Wells, Somerset. 25cm x 19cm.
