Cat With Hannibal Lechter Mask Collage

Hello everyone:

Here is a photo collage I did that started as just something to make a friend laugh.

My friend's cat has a habit (as most cats do) of bringing mice and birds into her house (sometimes living, sometimes already dead) resulting in much disgust on my friend's part.

She mentioned she would like to have a customized mask for her cat similar to what Hannibal Lechter wore in Silence Of The Lambs to keep him from doing this type of thing anymore and that was all it took for me to come up with this.

Aside from the blurred cell bars, all photos were taken from various sources found on the internet then manipulated by myself in Photoshop. So I want to make this clear that none of the reference photos (included to the left of the final image) are my own work.

The sad thing is, there was one of a crappy CG kid's movie that came out recently (Cats and Dogs 2, I think) that had a promo poster with a similar look to it but I promise you I finished this long before I ever saw it.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

And Tony, disturbing is one thing that is unavoidable whenever a straightjacket and mask is involved.
