Pat Thomas -- the original "Cat Head."
Our store takes it's name in part from Raymond "Pat" Thomas' near legendary "cat head" drawings. He's done literally thousands on every substrate imaginable. From plywood and cardboard to table tops and toilet seats. He is the son of the internationally known bluesman/folk artist James "Son" Thomas. One of 13 kids, Pat lived with his father till 1993 when Son passed away. During that time, Pat picked up his father's habits -- good, bad and otherwise. Fortunately, he also picked up his skills as a blues musician and folk artist. In addition to his cat head drawings, Pat works with clay and found objects whenever he has materials at hand. If he has clay to work with, he usually creates various head, skull and animal designs. He is a featured performer at the blues festivals in Clarksdale and Leland, Mississippi each year, so be sure to catch him if you can.
Call for current selection and prices. (They are very reasonable and ultimately help support a truly fascinating artist/musician.)
