Cleo—Though I loved all of these Wide-Eyed kitties, Cleo was my favorite. Something about him seemed to need me more than the others!
M Y C O L L E C T I O N — These Wide-Eyed Kitty posters have a copyright/litho date of 1965. They hung in my bedroom from then until the early '70s when I switched bedrooms and became a bit more "adult." I replaced them with the Motor Trend "In Retrospect" posters featured in this blog a while ago. Interestingly, I've found almost nothing online about these posters, or the artist, "Gig" except for several of these prints for sale at eBay. They measure 10 1/4 x 14 inches each, and all feature vintage thumbtack holes in each corner, lol. I really like the details Gig painted into each one, whether it was a half-buried tea cup, a discarded sardine can or a brick tenement building.
