WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CREATE THIS PIECE OF ART? WHAT'S IT CALLED?
Tortoiseshell cats are often abbreviated to "torties" on the internet, which just lends itself to some great puns. I spent a few hours brainstorming all of the possible food related puns for torties that I could think of, before settling on this one. This one is called "Torte-ie" and features a tortoiseshell cat flopped over on a torte. A torte, btw, is just a fancy name for a cake.
WHO DO YOU ENVISION WILL LOVE AND USE THIS ART?
Tortie owners are a special breed. We all know that our cats can be a little spicy. I'm excited for this art to make it into the hands of tortie owners, cat lovers, veterinarians and registered vet techs everywhere. I think it'll also make a great gift for cat moms and dads.
WHEN AND HOW DID YOU MAKE THIS PIECE?
I made this piece, along with the three other tortie-food pun pieces, on one very long Sunday in October 2021. I'd say overall it probably took me 5-7 hours to make all four designs.
I used Rebelle 4 to create the primary illustration for this sticker; then I used Affinity Designer to add the text and do final, small adjustments. I always use Affinity Designer to prep my sale pictures, too.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE PIECE? DO YOU HAVE ANY REGRETS?
I love how playful the tortie looks as she's rolling around on top of this perfectly frosted cake. I had to mix and match cat poses with food to get it all to look right. I think my only regret is the coloring - they're all a bit dark. I can (and do) lighten stickers as I print them, if needed.
