We all know that cats rule the Internet. Cats are adorable, cute, warm and fuzzy creatures. So it doesn’t come as a surprise when artists use these cute fur balls in their art.
Digital artist Alfra Martini created the viral Internet phenomenon where cats replace famous musicians in original album art. She is a is a musician who runs a record label and sells vintage posters and one day had the brilliant idea to make famous music albums so much better by replacing the people with adorable kittens.
About how the whole project came to life the artist told Humor in America: ” I was staying home from my day job as a vintage poster dealer, recuperating from a cold and feeling a little restless in bed. Lucky for me, I always have something to do for the record label, regardless of whether I can get out of bed or not, and as we are a very independent DIY outfit, I started researching alternative methods for record distribution on my laptop, i.e. checking out stores who might be interested in carrying our stuff.”
“It’s not the most effective thing, but you have to start somewhere, and I wasn’t about to waste my time sneezing all day. Sifting through online catalog after catalog, well, you revisit some iconic album covers and, if you are like me, you get distracted by the graphics decisions and the exaggerated style of rock iconography. It was then that a vision popped into my head: David Bowie as a kitten.”
So here is what happens when you mix rock n’ roll with cats, courtesy of Bored Panda.
