Oh, designer jokes. Typically when a designer puts something together for print, they are working in a CMYK color space - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and the K is for Black (as in Key Black). It has to do with the way printers are set up. Anyway! The point is that Rook's tongue is magenta, his eyes are yellow, he is all black ... only the cyan was missing! UNTIL NOW. 

Okay okay you guys don't care.

Yuko's got some new art up on her Tumblr! Take a look. 

An update on holiday shipping,

  • International shipping deadline has passed! But we can still mail it out as quickly as we can. 
  • Domestic shipping deadline is December 15th!
  • We're unfortunately out of holiday dino gifts! Really sorry about that! We went and got a second batch and you guys burned through that too. 
  • Mawzantine Crest tees are 25% off! Hokusai tees available too!
  • And books! We're cutting off Special Edition books soon so that Yuko has enough time to get them all ready for holiday shipping!
  • Lastly, there are only about 10 Puppy keychains left! 

I think that's it. Sorry these posts have been so repetitive - Winter is possibly the busiest time of year! See you next week!

So, anyone else agree that "Cat" should be spelled with a "K" in this case? Anyone, anyone?

OhMyGods... I am SUCH a graphics geek.
I was totally sniggering at that.

Just thinking about all the times I have wanted to put my head through my monitor trying to explain to a client the difference between RGB and CMYK, while they're complaining "It didn't look like that on MY screen!" (Yeah, your UNCALIBRATED $79 Dell Display...)

Carry on. Banzai!

Looked like she was holding a thong at first glance.
Was thinking to myself "now there is a woman who is passionate about thongs"

Mother's cat died because it's collar got stuck on something and it choked to death. Good luck with that. =/

It's a safety collar - it

Comment by Ananth Tue, 12/14/2010 - 14:50

It's a safety collar - it comes undone easily if too much stress is put on it. Sorry to hear about your mother's cat. 

HAHA

First time posting -
I love your nerd humor guys. I really love what you do, and I can probably safely say this for most everyone here: I wish there was more, but alas, there is only so much time in a day.
The artwork is fantastic, and the fiction is refreshing and original. I love the auto-bio too.
I've been trying to start a webcomic for a while now and you guys are a heavy influence. I'd like you to know your work is appreciated.

Delightfully Nerdy!

Rook looks like he'd fit right in to some crazy '60s psychedelic thing here.

The little musical notes

Comment by Adam M (not verified) Tue, 12/14/2010 - 11:47

The little musical notes around the collar are a nice touch. When I read that panel, I heard a triumphant kazoo fanfare. :)

It all makes sense now

Comment by Grandus (not verified) Tue, 12/14/2010 - 12:11

For the longest time the wife and I felt compelled to get our little black kitty Sora a cyan collar, now I know why. We both have an artistic background but it never clicked. We had been subliminally programmed!

And this comic popped to the forefront of my brain.

CMYKitty

Comment by Robyn (not verified) Tue, 02/01/2011 - 22:27

As a Graphic Designer (and fellow owner of a black cat), I giggled so hard...

Then I realized... For 2½ years, my cat had a red collar. I recently got her a new one - CYAN colored. I freaked out and ran to go check her paws (I was pretty sure they were black, but I had to be sure)... and sadly, they are black.

So I only have CYKitty.

CMYcat shirt

I just got my CMYcat shirt in the mail! It is the best, I want to wear it for the rest of forever! :D

D'aww!

Comment by JET73L (not verified) Thu, 09/15/2011 - 01:06

I had seen the CMYcat t-shirt ad in the sidebar, but didn't get it until Yuko referred to the collar as "cyan".

Rook is a CMYKitty :3

Ah yes, I just love the cmy cat shirt lol
I would've ordered it a long time ago if the shop accepted i-deal (safe internet banking system) credit card is a big no-no online in both my country and for my parents :/
