3-D Kitty by Christie Hicks

Description: The visual illusion of movement and depth can be created with the use of black and white repeating shapes in art work. Shadow, scale, and alternating patterns of black and white can fool the eye into seeing depth of space, where in reality there is only a flat surface. The 3D designs on this cat were all created in Photoshop, and then precision cut onto pliable black vinyl sheets. The resulting graphic designs were then carefully adhered to the cat with transfer tape.
3-D Kitty was inspired by Computer Graphics classes I took at Columbia-Greene Community College. While it’s fun to use computer graphics skills designing logos and websites, it was really great to apply these skills toward creating this Catskill Cat.
About the Artist: I moved to the Hudson valley in late 2014 when my husband Kevin retired from the army. We enjoy the tranquility of the area and the beauty of the mountains. I’m so excited to be participating again in this year’s amazing fundraiser for the town of Catskill.
