Hey guys! We've started in on the work for Volume 3, which we've titled "The Ballad of Laundry Cat". We're going to do something new this time and go through the work we do to put a book together step by step, with new updates on the process on Thursdays. Hope you enjoy it!
Yuko's parents have been renovating their upstairs! It looks amazing. If my calculations are correct, besides the upstairs den there's one new renovated room per cat. This is how I make all the calculations in my life these days ... or should I say ... catculations ...
Check out this cool mug! We've been sitting on this design for years and the fine folks at Topatoco finally helped us make it a reality! Hurray!

Hey guys! Phoenix Down tees, CMYcat tees, and CMYcat totes are now in the store! That's the last of the items we're adding for Christmas. Johnny Wander Vol. 2 is still in the store, as well as a discount book pack.
Apparently the new Pokémon game takes place in an abstracted New York - whenever Yuko gets around to playing it I'm going to be looking over her shoulder. Yuko hates that, so hopefully she'll read this first so she can be prepared.
Some of your ordered prints! We're going to try to send them out this week - sorry it's taken so long! As it's the first time we're offering these, we're taking the time to make sure we do it all right. It should run more smoothly once we get the first batch sent out.
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.
