The Fat Cat is one of Sheffield's best-loved pubs and also one of Jo's best-loved prints! Made originally as part of her solo exhibition at Sheffield's Millennium Gallery in 2015, this drawing was made as part of a series celebrating the spirit of Sheffield and also the city of Pittsburgh, USA.
By looking to find the similarities between the Steel Cities and highlighting a dual narrative from their shared industrial past, this pub was chosen because of the Kelham Island Brewery next door, a celebration of independent Breweries.
A film, made at both The Fat Cat in Sheffield and Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh can be viewed on Jo's Vimeo channel.
And for 2021 this print has been released in vibrant orange, because this year, who doesn't need a bit more colour and vibrancy?
