Who is Tabs the Cat? About six years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model).
This was a pretty easy week for Tabs, all things considered. No redeye flights or business hotels. In fact, Tabs didn’t travel at all. He stayed here in Novato the entire week.
He did have a slew of modeling jobs, though, but everything was shot in studio with a green screen.
It’s pretty amazing what they can do nowadays…
You might be interested in one of his gigs — the one for MAC. It was really interesting. A crew showed up at the front door the other morning with a portable photography backdrop and one of those fancy metal suitcases. They open the case, and what’s inside? How about a $250,000 diamond necklace from Tiffany!?
The necklace was a loaner specifically for the shoot. The crew set up the backdrop in the dining room while a MAC makeup artist did Tabs’ makeup. Then they brought in this huge prop of a giant MAC 217 brush, stood it up next to Tabs in front of the backdrop, and the photographer got the shot.
Amazing, right? 🙂
And here’s the final result…
