Developing The Inflatable Cat


I know the first comments on this post are going to be that we made the wrong choice, but let me explain why we did what we did. Our first impulse when we had the idea for Cat-In-A-Can was that it should just be a photorealistic cat printed on an inflatable body. A staff member volunteered her cat, Lily, who underwent an intense all-angles photo-shoot. From the side, you can even argue that it looks better than what we went with…

From the front, the limitations of the shape and detailing of inflatable objects turns the realistic cat’s face into a seriously deformed and deeply disturbing, sad-eyed cat/pig demon that haunts our dreams.

Some people even had problems identifying it as a cat. We went with the less interesting but less creepy cartoon cat, but I had to share what could have been.

    Sign me up for a photo realistic cat in a can. Heck, I don’t even need the can. I’d take it in an even creepier presentation – ziploc baggie!
