Simon Tofield, creator of Simon’s Cat

I had the honor of introducing Simon Tofield, creator of Simon’s Cat, at Miami Book Fair International this weekend.  With his pitch-perfect pen, Tofield  captivated the audience by drawing a series of cats and showing how he creates his lovable but annoying characters. He inscribed a copy of his book (with a drawing of a Maine Coon cat) to Lorenzo. And he was just a sweetheart of a man.BiondiTofield EnzoBook_Snapseed frame

Odyssey magazine feature

Apparently Lorenzo is “an adventure in science,” or at least that’s what Odyssey children’s magazine thinks. He’s featured in the October 2013  issue as an animal with a real day job.

Asheville Citizen-Times

Spent the month of August in a log cabin just north of Asheville in North Carolina, working on a series of photos  of Lorenzo in rustic settings. All was well until we encountered a mountain lion which lead to a broken shoulder. Here’s a link to a story the Asheville Citizen-Times did about the incident and us.

Coral Gables Museum exhibit

As a cat that was tossed in a garbage can and left for dead in Coral Gables, Lorenzo is now thrilled to be hanging in the Coral Gables Museum as part of the “Capture Coral Gables” photography exhibit opening on July 6. Here he is perched in an African baobob tree at Fairchild Tropical Garden. For the record, he hates that tie-dye shirt. The show runs until August 30th. Biondi Gables

These Handsome Cat Photos Feature-Fashion Forward Cat Lorenzo

 By: Lacey-Jane Walsh – Published: Jun 19, 2013 
These fiercely fashionable cat photos were taken by proud pet owner Joann Biondi (who obviously understands that cat humor is taking the Internet by storm.) This handsome cat goes by the name of Lorenzo and is seen here wearing all kinds of classy and edgy cat attire.Lorenzo must have seen Zoolander one too many times because this cat appears to be a modelling pro. He doesn’t mind being dressed up in little kitty clothing and he seems to look off into the distance as he poses for the camera. These shots were taken in a variety of different settings, from graffiti-covered alleys to country captures. Some of these fashion-focused cat photos incorporate props. For example, in one shot Lorenzo is seen wearing a blue polo shirt, with his paw casually thrown over a stack of books.These creative cat humor captures are sure to appeal to animal lovers.
