Apr 18, 2018

            Our wonderful artist, Josh Byer had an image which recently went viral on the popular social networking site Reddit; gathering more than 100,000 views!  

As a result, Josh was interviewed by A UK News Wire and the story was shared among a variety of publications.  The image that went viral is called “The Cat Who Stole the Sun” and it is inspired by a dream that Josh had.

He described the dream in the interview, “I had taken my shirt off because I was sweating. There was a lot of noise. The sky was overcast and shimmered like gasoline.That’s where the cat appeared, between clouds. He stole the sun while I watched, smiling with tiny little eyes. There was nothing I could do to stop him”.  Josh went on to say that he draws much of his inspiration from his dreams or “visions” as he put it.
