NEW! In time for holiday shopping, Pulcinella Press is offering Fine Art Giclée Prints of two beloved Fred Marcellino illustrations. These fine prints are reproduced on heavy Arches Aquarelle stock and printed with Fred's insignia.

In 1977, Fred was inspired to create an homage to M.C. Escher, whose famous crystal ball self-portrait conveyed a much less lighthearted mood. The additional pencil point notion is entirely original. Not to mention the cast of characters.


At first, Fred had some hesitation about using his Puss portrait in this fashion. He feared ripping himself off. But as he began to work on it, his sense of fun took over. It was a best-selling Christmas card for many years.
