I do like a portrait of an animal in clothes. There’s something about a cleverly matched animal head with a human’s outfit that makes me giggle every time. So, I was delighted to find Heather Mattoon Art on etsy – any shop whose promise is simply, “CATS AND DOGS IN CLOTHES” is alright by me. Here are some of my favourites…
This is George. Apparently, George is quiet, loves science, especially quantum theory, and feels that doctors should be more forthcoming with health advice despite the influence of the pharmaceutical companies.
And Cooper. Cooper is a deep thinker, his thoughts are profound. He walks alone from coffee shop to coffee shop carrying his journal.
Or Henry. Henry is not yet a teenager but likes to hang around the older crowd to feel a little bit cooler. He is wearing his favorite onesie pajamas.
But if dogs are more your thing… Stewart, oh Stewart, such a good natured boy. He enjoys very much organizing community meetings to raise awareness of societal issues. He provides all of the snacks as well.
Then there’s Theo. Theo lives in North Carolina in a newly remodeled home. He confuses people with his ironic sense of humor…he is what some people call a hipster.
And Sven. Sven spends his days looking after his grandmother. She lets him take her scooter to the shops. He is saving up for a motorcycle but right now he enjoys the Vespa.
Love your work, Heather Mattoon. If you’d like to check out more of Heather’s fabulous prints and originals, they are here.

Thanks for stopping by, HH – I agree!
PS, your blog name intrigued me, so I had a look – love it! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
These are fabulous but they leave me with more questions than answers – what qualifies as profound for a cat for example? I am also left wanting to know so much more about Theo with his ironic sense of humour and natty selection of cravats. I am off to email heather to ask for a full bio……
Bonjour Barker, welcome back! Yes, I think there’s a lot more to know about them – I do like what we know so far though, especially about Stewart and his snack-making. They still make me smile whenever I look at them, and that is a very good thing indeed. 🙂
