The Phantom lives in the underground caverns beneath the Opera House. His eerie caterwauls echo from inside the walls, keeping the terrified ballet girls awake every night.
“Phantom Cat” is a digital painting that I adapted from my original acrylic painting, “Mr Darcy Cat”, and modeled after my own tuxedo kitty, Dominic.
“Poor, unhappy Erik! Shall we pity him? Shall we curse him? He asked only to be ‘some one’, like everybody else… with an ordinary face, he would have been one of the most distinguished of mankind! He had a heart that could have held the empire of the world; and, in the end, he had to content himself with a cellar.” ~ Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera
Archival prints of “Phantom Cat” can be purchased in my shop, and from me personally at art shows.
