The Eyes Have It: We Love Casey Weldon’s Creepy Cats


Southern California-born artist Casey Weldon is interested in portraying popular culture in a retro style, recalling something eerily nostalgic and a little unsettling.

It’s the perfect style to convey the spooky mystery of cats. You know what we’re talking about — the way your cat sometimes perches up on a shelf, staring down at you with slit-pupil eyes, making you wonder if she’s about to pounce on you with outstretched claws. There’s a reason cats were once believed to be the familiars of witches — there’s something a little otherworldly about the quiet way they can stalk their prey, padding about on slippered paws, leaping effortlessly, and making killing look like a game.

Weldon’s work is host to many subjects, but our favorite is his treatment of cats. At first glance they seem so innocent — until you take a closer look and realize there’s something ever so slightly amiss. It makes us think of the times we’ve watched our cats chase some unseen prey throughout the apartment — do they have some kind of vision that allows them to see into other worlds? Or are they just a little bit crazy?
