Space cat meets Mars - illustration by Paul Galdone (1957)
The cover of this book circulates over Tumblr in a modified version (as seen on 4chan etc), “Space cat on mushrooms”, this is the original. I really don’t think it needs any editing, it’s perfect as it is.
Paul Galdone was born circa 1907 in Budapest, Austria-Hungary and immigrated to the United States in 1921. Galdone studied art at the Art Student’s League and New York School for Industrial Design. He served in World War II in the U.S. Army, Engineers. The author and illustrator of children’s books also was employed as a bus boy, electrician’s helper, and fur dryer, in addition to four years in the art department at Doubleday (NY). His work was awarded runner up for the Caldecott Medal (Eve Titus, Anatole, 1957 and Anatole and the Cat, 1958) and selection by the American Library Association for notable books (The Little Red Hen, Winter Danger, and Flaming Arrows). He died of a heart attack on 7 November 1986, in Nyack, NY.

Acrylic on wallet-sized mini canvases
As a weekend project, I decided to draw as many cocktail-drinking fish as I could on tiny novelty canvases. I ended up making twenty (the canvases come in packs of five) and then I turned the set into an 11x17” print. The print is for sale and if you wish to purchase one, you can do so here.
