Some may even live in your own home. I first conceived of the idea of Scary Cat about a year ago. I am always brainstorming new book ideas. Scary Cat seemed like a good concept for a Children’s book. This book is the first one I have drawn by hand. I used Copic markers, and Sakura Pigma Micron Pens. The speech bubbles were added with Photoshop. Since this book is going to be a series, I spent a lot of time in the first volume introducing the characters. I spent a lot of time designing the characters. Each of them is themed after a specific type of cat. The main girl, Filipa, is based on a Tuxedo Cat. The mother is a Calico cat, and the older sister is a Havana Brown Cat. The Tuxedo cat is not a type of cat breed. Rather, it is the name for the color patches. Filipa has a step-dad, and a little brother too. I thought it would make the family dynamics a little bit more interesting. The drawing style of the book is Kawaii. I thought the Kawaii style was interesting enough. Still, I feel that the anatomy is more Chibi. The scenery I drew it realistic, with cute faces in houses and trees. The first story is about looking for a scary sound in the woods. Kids tend to get worked up by unusual sounds. I was going for a whole investigative crew type of feel for the stories. Still, I do not want to make the scary stuff be a guy wearing a costume. There will never be a guy in a scary costume. The book is meant for little kids, but grown up can enjoy the book too, if they have nothing better to do. Hopefully, the kids will be able to cope with their childhood fears. Aside from the cat family, in this book there will be other species of people. I do not plan to have humans featured. Each of the creatures will have some of the passive abilities of their animal counterparts. Scary Cat Filipa will be able to climb, and her penguin friend will be able to swim underwater. Filipa will also roam a bit, as is the habit of kitties. I seen them roaming about from time to time, in the back garden. Aside from the book, I suppose I should speak of myself a bit. I graduated with Honors from FIU from the School of Journalism. I have a Bachelor in Communications. I started drawing in my spare time, between my classes. This is the second series of children books that I have started. The other one is about the Bible. I could have done with story with any other type of animal. I could have even used people. Instead, I used cats and cute little animals. I like cats. I hope you like cats too. Aside from children’s books, I have a manga and a fantasy book series. You can check them out, if you like the way I write and draw.
