Year of the Cats

For the past six years, our studio Popdesign has produced a calendar 
featuring Sebastiano's animal art. The project started as a gift to family and friends, 
and evolved into a series of limited editions available in Italian and English versions. 
In the past we have explored different subjects, from dogs to birds and wildlife,
but our customers' perennial favorite, as you probably imagine, is cats. 
For the third year, the calendar has been featured as a giveaway on Modern Cat
a wonderful resource for cat owners with a taste for modern and innovative design.
There's still time to enter by leaving a comment here before January 2nd.
And if you decide to buy the calendar from our etsy shop, you'll receive three bonus prints!

I am very glad that this happens as we welcome our new pet Chapi, a very sick and homeless young cat 
which was rescued last Summer by our daughter Julia. When he first appeared at the campground
where she was staying, he was a smelly bag of bones with eyes half closed, missing teeth, a rough coat
 infested with fleas and mites and very little energy left. Although still suffering from a lingering cold
 and conjunctivitis, since he has been adopted Chapi has turned into a lovely cat with soft shiny fur,
 a nice healthy body and a great disposition. And now that he's stronger, it's time to move
 from a small city apartment to the country!


  1. Lovely work – such gorgeous colours and compositions, and how nice to read about Chapi.

  2. Yikes! We do seem to think alike, Laura. Take a peek at my post today, if you have a minute...

    Terrific work, Popdesign!

  3. Tremendously beautiful prints! and Chapi is a handsome charmer.

  4. So glad Chapi found a great home. Nice calendar, love the use of color.
