Everybody loves a LOLcat right? I’m delighted to be part of LOLcat: Teh Exhibishun a fabulous exhibition celebrating the world of internet LOLcats. I’ll be jointly exhibiting with Glasgow based writer Kirsty Logan, whose poem Sestina to my Lolling Cat I have typeset and illustrated.
The illustration features my gorgeous little cat Mia, who sadly passed away in July. Mia loved lolling about my desk, walking on my keyboard and encouraging my procrastinative tendencies with lots of hugs, posing for instagram shots and insisting I hang out in the garden with her. Here’s a sneak preview, see if you can spot mine…

The exhibition, curated by Jenny Theolin of Soapbox and Sons, opens on Tuesday 23 January 2013. The prints will be available to buy framed and unframed; a fantastic 50% of the proceeds will be going to Battersea Cat and Dog Home, so it’s LOLcats helping actual cats (and dogs), which makes me happy as I am a crazy cat lady after all.
The exhibition has picked up some pretty awesome press coverage appearing in Huffington Post, The Independent, Creative Review, Wired, Computer Arts, We Heart, The Fluffington Post, Design Taxi, Digital Arts, Its Rude to Stare, Design You Trust and Design Week
LOLcat: Teh Exhibishun (how cool is this site?!) opens on 23 January and runs until 15 February 2013 at The Framers Gallery, 36 Windmill Street, London W1T 2JT
Needless to say, I have a suitably cat themed outfit for the private view. Miaow…
