The other day my cat, Sputnik, was lying on the bed curled up for her nap. As I was hovering around her with my camera, she looked up. I turned the photo I got of her into a black and white stencil photo and used it as a spring board for my latest cat portrait series, Pangur Ban, on etsy.

Pangur Ban is a poem written by an Irish Monk about his life with his cat. The excerpt below is from a translation by Kuno Meyer at creighton.edu.
Pangur Ban - The Monk and His Cat
I and my white Pangur
Have each his special art :
His mind is set on hunting mice,
Mine is upon my special craft.
