Scrollwork Cats of 2023

In the world of quilled paper art, every creation is an opportunity to breathe life into the delicate strips of paper, forming intricate designs that capture the essence of the subject. In 2023 I had the pleasure of creating just two scrollwork cats: an orange tabby named Larry in August, and a black, orange, and white calico in October.

Over the years, I have made over a hundred of these cute kitty cats. They have been my most popular personalizable item outside of typography. One of these days I plan to make a count of how many of each color. If I had to guess, I’d say that orange, black, and white calicos have been the more frequently requested, though I’ve done a lot of black cats, too.

As I write this, it’s actually in hindsight because right now, as I’m typing, it’s March 5, 2024. This year I have created six scrollwork cats. Do you love my Original Scrollwork Cats? See the entire gallery here.
