About

Hello Again!

It has only been a few months since you lovely people helped me to release my book, 101 Cats - A Collection of Illustrations - Volume 1, over 100 much loved cats, using pencils, markers and paint, printed and bound in a little book.

 This past week I completed the last few kitty portraits as part of my first ever Kickstarter. 

WHO DIS?
WHO DIS?

 It took a lot of late nights, explaining to my furbabies why I was looking at OTHER CATS, but once I learned how to draw with not one, not two but 3 cats on my lap, I realised I'm only 5 CATS SHORT of having enough cat illustrations for 101 Cats - Volume 2!! 

 GIMME YOUR KITTEHS!So here I am back again, this time not only asking for your help in publishing my book, but I also need your kitties...

There are 5 blank pages in the book, and I need FIVE crazy kitties to help me end the book in style!

As before there will be over 100 images in the book, and this time ALL of them are in full colour and as you can see, there are some GREAT new characters...
There are floofs and tabbies, meezers and moppets, and of course a few gingersnaps.

Not to mention the babies!

I have loved every single kitty I've drawn, and my art is still progressing, so I would really love to keep going until I reach my ultimate goal of 1000 cats! 

ALL THE CATS!

​One Of These Things is Not Like The Other!

One of my friends jokingly asked if he could have his dog in the book... At first I just laughed, “That’s silly it’s a CAT BOOK.” Then I thought...

WHY NOT?! Be yourself! Be different! Be the only dog in a book of Cats!

Whether its because you have a multispecies family or if you're just one of the people who want to watch the world burn...

This reward will not only include a custom portrait of your doggie, but your doggie will be the ONLY DOG IN A BOOK OF CATS! 

Madness I know, I know...You will receive the original A4 portrait in ink as well as one of the limited edition hardcovers, and the digital edition of Volume One. SUPER limited reward, Only ONE available:) 

Rewards will ship throughout March 2018.

Stretch Goals

If we reach £4000 I love the idea of adding a little blurb to accompany each kitty's portrait.
These blurbs will increase the page count and hence the cost of production as well as take a considerable amount of time to source and edit, but each of these cats have such lovely stories, it seems a shame for them not to be told! 

Here's hoping we get there :) 

And if we reach the mad amount of £5000, then I will be reprinting Volume 1 in the NEW NEW design and sending it out to all backers who pledge above £30 (before shipping).

Heres a glimpse of what the new designs could look like!

Risks and challenges

Since my first project I have learned a few things:
1. No matter how long you think things will take, they will take longer.
2. The more cats I draw, the more detail I seem to add in...and it ends up taking me longer and longer.
3. Printers are humans too, and things can go wrong there sometimes, no matter how hard we try!
4. Shipping is expensive. Especially when you find fancy shiny purple packaging you HAVE to have.
5. Bonus rewards need to be thought out carefully. They take time to make!
6. Being a perfectionist isn't great for getting things done quickly.
7. Cats do NOT like it when your lap is occupied by drawings of other cats!

So what am I going to do differently this time around?

I am going to give myself more time. Even though I have almost all the kitties ready for this book, I want to be able to dedicate the most time to the final drawings, and I want to compile the drawings carefully.

This means that I will be taking fewer portrait commissions as part of this kickstarter, and it also means that I am giving myself longer to complete these portraits.
Due to the increased detail of the portraits, I am also going to have to slightly increase the cost, but trust me, I am going to EARN my keep.

I am keeping all the most popular rewards from my first campaign, but trimming the fat, and I am going to focus on the art (and the kitties!)
Any stretch goals will be met with bonus freebies, rather than new rewards, except for that one whopper of a stretch goal idea I would like to achieve... :D
