"The Cat Collection" is a British magazine devoted to, well...cats!

Issue #5 includes my version of "The Owl and the Pussycat" in their Famous Felines section tribute to Edward Lear's nonsense rhyme.

This collection of tiki gods attempts to shed light on a lost and forgotten world. Some exist in plain view among the throng of civilization.
