Cats and Guitars

For almost a year, Monika and I were babysitting a cat named Romeo. At some point, I realized how well he matched one of my guitars, a Rickenbacker 620. So, into the studio we went and took some photos. That's where this project began.

I put the word out for cat volunteers. Each cat was brought to my studio, where he/she stayed over for a weekend, to give them enough time to acclimate before I started taking pictures. This also allowed me to visit my buddies down at Emerald City Guitars and borrow a guitar overnight.
