Pop Cats - Vol 1.

$10,826

170

Welcome to our Pop Cats Vol. 1 Kickstarter! We are The Ninjabot, a husband and wife team with a passion for design and illustration! Oh, and cats. We hope that you enjoy what we are trying to accomplish, and help us get this project funded. Please read below for more details!

NEW POP CATS ADDED

The book will contain over 100 full color pages, and over 50 detailed cat illustrations. It will be a 7"x7" perfect bound softcover book. Each cat illustration is inspired by a different pop culture character, anywhere from movies, comics, historical figures, and much more! The book will feature fun characters like: Meowzaki, Catpool, Catleesi, Furryosa, Catgirl, Darth Kitty, Captain Americat, Kitty McFly, Jack Purrton, Tenth Kitty, Rocatteer, Clawrra, Hairy Potter, and many more!

This will be a limited edition printing so each book will be hand numbered.

Plus, all Kickstarter backers will receive a special little stamp inside their book to show off the Kickstarter Exclusivity and awesome support to us, The Ninjabot!

As a thank you to our backers, the book will also contain a full spread of the names of everyone that helped us make this project a reality.

Our Adopt-a-Pop Cat kits are a fun way for you to take home our illustration work. The kit comes with one original artwork piece from the book in a 5"x7" frame, a certificate of Pop Cat "adoption", an Exclusive Pop Cat button, a few "candid pictures" of the cat's adventures, and obviously, two yarn balls!

In this tier you will have the opportunity to get one of the Original Illustrations from the book. Here is the list we have so far, as they have not all been finished yet. However, when we do have them all done we will post them up, and then collect the requests from each backer. You will get to choose what character you want in order of when you pledged to this project, so the sooner you pledge to this tier the more choices you will have to choose from, but you will have to answer us within 15 calendar days otherwise you will give up your "place in line".

List of Originals from the book currently available:
Meowzaki, Catpool, Catlessi, Ruby Rawr, Batcat, Fluffy Quinn, Clawn, Darth Kitty, Calico Ren, Paw Dameron, Captain Americat, Agent Catter, Jack Purrton, Tenth Kitty, Albert Felineinstein, Rocatteer, Clawrra, Hairy Potter, Catnos, Slash Kitty, John McClaw, Frida Catlo, David Clawie, Tony Meowtana, The Catmedian, Princess Meownonoke, Indiana Cat, Fuzz Lightyear, Kitty McFly and many more!

If you pledge to this limited tier, your cat will be added to the book that will be shared with thousands of people around the world! When the project is over, and (hopefully) fully funded, we will contact you asking for a few pictures of your cat, and we'll discuss what character you wanted him/her to be. **IMPORTANT INFO: It can be any character of your choosing, but please, nothing that can be considered racist, sexist, vulgar, homophobic, and/or distasteful. We reserve the right to reject the character that you choose. We will do our best to work with you and come to an arrangement where both parties are happy! We just want to make sure it's a friendly, and fun character that would fit in well with the book.

By pledging to "The Loving Parent Package" you are giving us the right to print, and use the commission of your pet in our book, promotional, social media and/or any other material related to Pop Cats and Ninjabot LLC. Once we request the pictures of your cat you will have 15 calendar days to respond, and e-mail us all of the information we requested in order to have your cat in the book. If you don't answer within that time frame you run the risk of us not being able to publish your cat in our book.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please send a message through Kickstarter, or send us an e-mail at hi@theninjabot.com.

Thank you so much for checking out our Kickstarter, we hope you join our project and become part of this great ride! If you can't pledge for the project and still want to help, please share it with your friends and family on your personal blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, or any other social media outlet. Thank you so much once again for taking the time to checkout our project!

Risks and challenges

Once all of the illustrations are finished, the biggest risk of this project is the book printing. Fear not though, we have set time aside, and planned our next few months to be able to finish all of the illustrations, while also working on other things.

We tried to pick a book printing company that is dependable, affordable, high in quality, with a fast turn around time.The criteria we set for ourselves seemed impossibly high! However, we think we have found one with all of those attributes! Unfortunately, there is always a chance where something can go wrong with our vendor, and they delay the printing process. In which case, it would delay the delivery time to us, therefore delaying the shipping time to you. If something were to happen we would let you know right away, and we would work our hardest to get all the package out the door as soon as possible.

We plan to ship everything as soon as we have it all, so everyone can get their package right away!
