Colorado-based artist Arna Miller and her husband Ravi Zupa have created a series that will set the internet on fire.
Entitled Strike Your Fancy, the collection of matchboxes feature humorous vintage-style illustrations of cats staying out late and making bad decisions.
From two felines getting into a heated argument, to a drunk pussycat spending all his meow-ney at the bar, the series makes these animals more relatable by putting them in awful situations (which we’re all familiar with, one way or another).
Everybody Knew The Words! This is from a series of new matchbox prints I collaborated on with @arnamiller. Hand printed by us! Her show is called Strike Your Fancy and will feature new prints by Arna as well as some of our collaborations. Opening is June 1st @abstractdenver gallery from 6-10 pm. Come by, we’d love to see you! #matchboxart #catart #strikeyourfancy #safetymatches #abstractdenver #denvergallery #arnamiller #ravizupa #blockprint #drunksinging
“My aim is to create narrative illustrations that depict magical moments,” Miller said about her work. “I often use text to tell part of the story, but like to leave most of the narrative up to the viewer.”
