So... I own 2 cats... rather, they own me and my wife. Simba is the fat one, Tembo is the cute one. In a short time, they became family.

Then I noticed something. 

All those myths about cats landing on their feet were NOT true. Simba couldn't stick the landing even when he was tiny. So I thought... what else are cats bad at?

And that's how "Cats Are Bad At..." was born.

I wanted to do something with an art book that would be fun, ridiculous, and make people laugh, or be a good gift for that cat person in your life. Some of it pokes fun at cats, admittedly, there are some cats drawn in there that would meet a grisly fate, should they actually attempt these insane stunts, but at the end of the day, it's all in good fun!

There was a whole list of things that didn't make it into this book, but there were a lot of good ones in there too: Beer Pong - Piloting Mecha - Fine Art - Photography - Acapella - Speedboats - Football - Broadway Musicals - Coffee - Breakdancing - Cosplay - Debate - Kaiju - Horror - Robots - Quinceaneras and Reading just to name a few that are in this volume!

The book itself is just about finished, and will BE finished before the end of the Kickstarter. Shipping will take place during the month of April and early May.

HOWEVER! I will be at WonderCon in Anaheim the first weekend in April and doing an event in Phoenix where PICK UP will be available! Should you choose to PICK UP your rewards, you will get an EXTRA BONUS when you see me! 

Thank you everyone for your time!

Risks and challenges

The risks of the book is minimal. There are only a half dozen pages left to draw ink and color. The printers I use for all items are quick and efficient and the Kickstarter ends with plenty of time for them all to be completed and shipped to my place in time for the first pickup at WonderCon Anaheim on the first weekend of April! =D
