Fat Cats at Wallstreet

I stumbled across some beautiful fat cat art today with an interesting back-story (best viewed large)...

Great American Bubble Machine

Here's what it's all about:
“I’m trying to capture both the global financial collapse and the revolutions and uprisings that it fomented,” Crabapple said. “My tentative list of subjects is Goldman Sachs, the health insurance industry, hacktivists, the American Dream, student loans and mortgages, Egypt, Greece, the United Kingdom, Occupy and unions. If I have time, I’d also love to paint something about Iceland.”- Molly Crabapple via Wired Magazine

Her art is similar to that of Hieronymus_Bosch, known for his use of fantastic imagery to illustrate moral concepts and narratives.
