We are stuck in the 90's when it comes to web design and we thought it was time we started using a content management system and clean up some of the old useless content.
So bare with us as we clean up and add redirects on all the old pages. if you notice anything amiss please do let us know!
Also, we are raising money to get our butts to Calgary Expo! We have an indieGOGO campaign and there are lots of nifty prizes and perks for donaters.

It would be really amazing if you could help us by donating some money, or even just promoting it for us! If you have Twitter, facebook, google+, Tumblr, blogs, or websites or anything (your dA journal for example)! if you could just promote our cause, and get the word out we'd be forever in your debt!
We have a campaign goal we're trying to meet.

We had a full table, and even that seems too small sometimes because we have so much stuff!
Prints and little captured ghosts were the hot items at this convention for us.
|A closer look at our table with our prints in our new portfolios and our last remaining stock of little captured ghosts.|
The Market was an odd mix of crafters, comic artists and cosplayers which worked well for us as we had lots of cute little trinkets.
It was disappointing, as always, to see how many people were making a profit off of other peoples characters, concepts and ideas (I'm referring to the sale of fanart), which is usually rampant to festivals with a large anime fan group, unfourtunately. Which is why we usually avoid them and stick to small press shows.
We even heard a couple girls (who kept coming back and admiring our table) say how much she loved our books but didn't buy them because she "didn't know who the characters were."
Very disappointing but gladly that wasn't the attitude of everyone as we had quite a successful venture.
I think the staff of MiniComi did a really great job putting it all together.
We are going to try and get some better ideas for displaying our stuff more upright and visual, everything laying flat sucks beans.
|Mini Comi table Next time we're getting display boards! woo hoo!|
Hope to see you there!

Its called Bad Kitties, and its based around random scenarios that our kitties torment us!
So I'm not entirely set on the timing for this, but it won't be weekly I don't think. Maybe Bi-Weekly. I'll see how much interest there is (that means the more enthusiastic you are, the more you see).
I'm trying to still work on Hello, Albertosaurus, and we have many conventions and stuff so time is tight, but I'll do my best for this :D
Additionally, some days there will be 1 page, some will be 5 pages. Whatever is needed for the Gag, But each blog post with comic will be a complete gag. They'll be inked traditionally and coloured digitally, but simply! well, you'll see :)
So this is going to be Blog only content! I won't be posting these comics ANYWHERE ELSE! so it's in your best interest to follow this blog if you want my random insane kitty comics! You can follow with Google Friend Connect, or add it to an RSS feed!
So here we are, Issue one of Bad Kitties!

There was tons and tons of cosplay of course, and lots of people milling around. the big hits at this one were the ghosts! Everyone loves the ghosts!
It was SO COLD! SUMMER FEST WAS FREEZING COLD... O_O
It poured rain all day, cleared up for the even kinda, then poured on the way home, but its was so damp peoples art was curling on the cork boards, and our little moleskines and comics were all wrinkly with the damp. even when we got home the damp was in everything. Not fond of that at all! But still, overall GREAT!
so here are a couple photos of the day! I didn't take many cuz I just had my phone.

Also we have a new pile of buttons for sale as well!
So cute! Here's a little production photo of the Moma charms!
it'll also be a good chance to come and talk to us about the anthology if you had questions or ideas to share with us.
|Available as cell charms and keychains|
We have our Table Number for Mini Comi, it is F3.
If you are interested in a floor plan for that convention you can see that in a Journal post by Nyurt.
It also shows where the other members of DeviantArt will be situated.
A more recent convention, that has tables available still if you are looking to sell some stuff is Summer Fest!
That is happening this saturday at SFU. We will hopefully be showing off our new table banner at this show.

We're Preparing for convention season! We have 3 conventions this month (check out our calendar)! We have Vancouver Comic Con this Sunday (July 10th) and Kitty will be in attendance at this one, then we have Summer Fest the following Saturday. This is the first time we're attending Summer Fest so we're not sure what to expect! You can RSVP to this event on Facebook.
Then we have the MiniComic coming up on the 27th which we are really excited for! Our friend MyntKat will be there too!
We're preparing for them all! I spent all day yesterday finding new merchandising stuff for our tables, and I think we have a much better system for displaying our little charms!
We're also going to be launching some new stuff related to Ghost Tales, and If we're really really lucky, we'll have our table banner in time for at least 2 of the cons! I don't think we'll have it for VCC.
We're also confirmed for a table at Comix and Stories! This ones August 28th! We're going to be at C&S with Donut! That should be interesting.
Well, back to work! I just wanted to drop in and say Hi, and let you know what's been going on!
