Imaginary Curator: Cats & Dogs

i’ve been contemplating some kind of pets related post, and why not use Imaginary Curator as a fun platform to do so? there were way more pet related artworks out there than i imagined! for some reason i could just picture all these pieces hanging in some gallery space somewhere, people perusing…
