This piece tells a visual story of a cat and its movement throughout the cold war. A cat is a smart intelligent creature who I believe embodies someone who has the mental capabilities to understand the complexities and length of the events taken place in the cold war. Using strong red to contrast the black and white gives the book tension, while slowly shifting to colors to signify a change in the mood.
