Quadra Cats

The Quadra Cats in the world of colour!

The Quadra Cats in the world of colour! The comics are in ink because they have to work for the newspaper, but the cats thought you’d like to see what they look like in colour!

In 2014, a friend who works on a local neighbourhood newspaper did an interview about me for the paper, and asked if I would be willing to draw a comic for the paper, which comes out quarterly. I said yes, and the Quadra Cats were born. This page updates on an irregular basis whenever I draw more comics. I’m planning to have a little book of them done for the spring convention season, so stay tuned!

UPDATE: APRIL 29, 2016
The script is done for the book! It will use most of the material here, but I’ll also be adding lots of new material to form a continuous story!

UPDATE: JULY 10, 2016
Holy furballs, Alien Cat! I totally forgot to mention back in May that the book is now out, though I did make a post that I was sending it off to the printers. Here’s the cover:

The Quadra Cats are all assembled for some interplanetary cultural puzzlements — but they all love takeout!

I had a fantastic time stitching together all the previous pages — I added quite a bit more than I had originally intended (Crossover quote from my Muse: “this will be easy”, she says, “you’ve already got so much already!”). The book is about 2/3 new material. It was actually really hard to stop where I did; I’ve now got a script written for the next book, planning to start work on that as soon as I’m done with a children’s book illustration project I’m working on. I’m also thinking of doing a Quadra Cats webcomic, in all my copious spare time.

Now back to the original strips:

The Quadra Cats get political — from the cat point of view, anyway.

A little dignity goes a long way. Especially if it doesn’t involve water.
