Damn cats will play with anything… Happy New Year!
Here’s a little something I made for Cats Protection. I hope you enjoy and are having a lovely Christmas!
From myself and Tali, Merry Christmas!
With Christmas just around the corner I thought it might be useful to have a guide, albeit a very small one, for cat owners. I hope it helps!
Tali can go from zero to mental in a few seconds flat which usually involves her speeding around the house like lunatic. Why? I have no idea.
Don’t forget, if you would like a commission in time for Christmas then get in touch soon! Details can be found here http://bit.ly/18XulFg
I’m taking on commissions for Christmas so if you would like an illustration of yourself, one of you or a loved on with their pet or perhaps how you would look as a cat (all of which can be seen in the slideshow above!) to give out as a gift for Christmas, now is your chance!
If you live in Europe, USA or Canada then I would need your orders in by Friday December 6 whereas UK residents can send order until December 13. More details can be found on the commissions page or alternatively, get in touch via the contact page.
For some reason, Tali finds the tumble dryer to be fascinating, avidly watching its many cycles and spins. Personally, I don’t see the appeal but compared to a lot of TV programmes nowadays, I think Tali has the right idea.
My second Thought Bubble was even more fun than my first thanks to good friends, good comics, good food and questionable dancing (not by me…) The train journey back from Leeds I could do without (hence the comic being a day late,) but Tali welcomed me home the best way she could.
Thank you to everyone who came by my table too. It was nice to talk to others who are so keen on cats!
I like to have documentaries on in the background while I work as it makes tedious work more bearable and naturally, Tali likes to watch too. Especially the ones with small furry animals in. Her eyes are glued to the screen if ever a squirrel saunters by.
I had a quick chat with comic enthusiast site Bleeding Cool on Saturday at Comica Comiket about my comics and their inspiration. Because most of my stories have twists of some kind, it was tricky to go into too much detail but it was nice to chat to a fellow lover of comics.
And yes, the old adage remains true - hearing my voice on a recording sounds really weird!
Tomorrow is Guy Fawkes night where British skies are filled with colourful explosions and the smell of burning effigies but not everyone find the whole thing quite so enjoyable. Don’t forget your feline friends who may be scared of all the noise and to help, I’ve made this handy guide.
I have one last minute addition to my shop - even though I said the 2014 Calendar was the last addition but hey, I guess I’m a workaholic. Based off of my advent calendar comic from 2012, I redrew the panels with pen & ink and gave it a colour scheme reminiscent of retro Christmas cards. The comic is printed on an A4 Gesso card and can either be bought online or I’ll have some with me this Saturday at Comica Festival too.
If you want to play games with a cat, you should probably let them wake up first.
I’ve always wanted to make a calendar. So I did! Taking 12 Diary Comics and a whole lot of numbers, the 2014 Eat, Sleep, Sniff Calendar can now be pre-ordered from my shop. As soon as they’re back from the printers (estimated w/c November 4th) they’ll be posted out.
