Tabby was first successfully funded in February 2015 through Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1917428739/tabby-action-romance-and-lots-of-cute-cats/) and after that Kickstarter, there was amazing feedback on the Rewards sketches. Everyone loved seeing them so I thought I would take the opportunity to get them all published along with a NEW coloured short story!
If you are after a copy of the first Tabby Graphic Novel, this can be purchased by increasing your pledge by $15.
What is Tabby Sketchbook?
Everything is ready to go. This Kickstarter will be to fund the first print run of Tabby and get it ready for distribution.

Each graphic novel will be over 40+ pages :
- 260mm x 170mm (slightly smaller than A4)

War & Peas is a short story in full colour that will be part of the Tabby sketchbook. See what happens when an old dog (War) meets a young kitten (Peas). It's the odd couple of friends!

Some amazing sketches from P.R. Dedelis and Eric Gravel are all part of the sketchbook! These are all never published before (not even as an A4 print) sketches that will make up part of the book. There will be over 20+ amazing sketches included as part of the graphic novel.
