Life took a turn for artist and maker, Kate Funk when she decided to make a birthday card for a friend featuring her mean mugging kitty, AC. Clearly it was a hit and ever since that fateful party picture, Kate has let her imagination go wild and AC’s stardom to the moon. From Pee-wee to the Christmas tree, AC has a long and expansive modelling career fueled by the creativity of Kate, her attention to detail, and absurd sense of humor. Kate has taken her photo series and built a serious business. Coming up on the release of her second book, Kate and AC are as busy as ever but took some time to talk about where they came from and what is happening next.
