The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Kittens & Kale

Kittens & Kale

When my friend Hamish said he was making art prints of “kittens playing with kale” I thought he’d finally lost it. I mean, kittens are always adorable, and everyone on earth but me seems to be obsessed with kale, so it could certainly work. What he ended up with was slightly genius.

Kittens & Kale is a celebration of youthful felines and tasty fronds. A loosely bound series of art prints depicting rescued kittens and kale recipes produced to celebrate Printed Matter’s second LA Art Book Fair (Jan 30th – Feb 2nd at the MOCA Geffen Contemporary). $5 from each sale will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society, the rescue and welfare organization dedicated to making Los Angeles a 100% no-kill city.

The project is a collaboration between Claire Cottrell, Lauren Spencer King, Hamish Robertson, and Andi Teran, featuring ten 5″ x 7″ prints of recently rescued kittens frolicking with kale accompanied by their adoption stories, and artfully-captured fronds of kale backed by recipes from Los Angeles restaurants Alma, Forage, Heirloom LA, Moon Juice, and Cookbook.

If you’re interested there’s a nice preview of the Kittens & Kale prints over on Los Angeles, I’m Yours.
