A Tale of Two Obsessions Part 2: Arline Conradt and the Cat Scrapbook

Part 1 of the Wallpaper Installation. There are thirteen 89" x 44" panels.

Part 2 of the Wallpaper Installation.

Detail of the greeting card section on left and the gradual shift into newspaper and magazine clippings.

One of Hannah's students who thankfully posed as my scale model.

War cat on bottom right (Peake of Chesapeake Railroad).

The weird cats nursing other animals section (skunks, squirrels, bunnies, etc.).

There are also lots of children looking like they could be strangling cats.

The last panel that includes drawings, a letter from the cats to Arline, and the end papers.


  1. It looks great and totally overwhelming. It's been interesting to watch this project evolve over time.

  2. thanks Cat! I wish I could say that I was done but this is only 1/3 of it.
