Preview: Short Story Collaboration

Here's a preview of a project I am working on with a couple of friends on the east coast, a short story written by one of them, plucked from a dream she remembered.  I happily agreed to illustrate the story, which is in its conceptual stages. It centers on the experiences of an alley cat who good-naturedly shares his knowledge to any felines who by choice or circumstance find themselves confronted with life on the streets. It is, in essence, a personalized survival manual for would-be alley cats. Below are a few selected concept sketches.  

I've tried to keep it to a limit so I don't spoil too much.  I'll keep you posted as the project progresses and particularly when we have a finished story on our hands, ready to distribute in some shape or form.


  1. omg YES. This story concepts looks brilliant and I am sold with those adorable, scruffy alley cat drawings! Super excited to see this finished! Love the character profile sketches.. XD Hilarious.

    1. Yay, I'm happy to hear you like it! Hopefully we'll get to the next stage soon. We're still playing with the possibility of extra chapters and deciding if we want to try and print it or have it available online, maybe even both. But it will be coming!
