No more commercials after this one! I wouldn’t make such a fuss about this Patreon deal if I honestly didn’t need the help! And even the lowest donation helps a bunch. The response so far has been really encouraging! Thanks to Patreon, CK will update twice a month. Next week brings a new episode of CK, continuing right where we left off! Please consider sponsoring Commander Kitty!
Hi, diehard Spacers! I finally had some time to myself where I didn’t feel guilty drawing CK and crew again!
The past year has been absolute nanners. I’ve been working as a storyboard artist / animator* for the new show ASTROBLAST. (check your local listings)
In contrast to my previous job, where there were lulls and rushes, this is constant non-stop 110 percent ten speed working biz. So a bit of a culture shock maybe (and dare I say an energy drain sometimes?) but it’s super fun doing this stuff all the time. I haven’t had anything comic worthy to post here, but I do post scribbles from time to time on the CK Facebook page.
But health wise, things are back on the up and up. I had some bad depression to go through over the winter which didn’t help things. (does it ever?) But being able to talk about it was part of getting over it for me. If depression hits you, hit back with talking. And patience.
But I don’t wanna bore you!
The big question… will CK continue? I want it to, but you fans don’t deserve this stop and go stuff. To reiterate a Facebook post, I would prefer to finish it behind the scenes and just present it to you all in a collection. A book if you will. And then move onto something else. Another CK story is possible. ANYTHING’s possible! I do like to mix things up.
Enjoy some CK artwork, and keep looking at the stars! I lost my skyfly keys, and they might drift by.
*They call it a storyboarding, but really there’s a lot of animating to do, but it’s in a rough stage. It’s what you might call an animatic. Well, it’s more final than an animatic, but less final than the final piece. Is that a actual position? Animaticker? Cartoons are weird, man!

Hey Spacers! It’s been too long. I wanted to write and keep you in the loop. 2013 was a tumultuous year for me. I lost my job, I lost one of my pets, I had nerve damage in my drawing hand for two months, I got a new job, a new ferret, and things seemed to even out. But around September, I began getting anxiety attacks, and through the winter, up to now, I’m trying to cope with a bad depression. I chalk it up to a lot of things happening that I wasn’t prepared for. Y’know, I had it pretty soft til then, and losing my job really rocked my boat. It just took a while to sink in.
But even though I don’t live near many of my friends, I have my family around, for which I’m grateful. I’m trying lots of things to help me get out of my funk, including writing this note. It can be a terrible thing, but it will get better. I just need time. Thanks for reading.
One thing that for definitely cheered me up was this birthday card from my good friend Brian Emling! You’ve gotta see this!
Every mode of transportation has at least one little plastic shopping bag in the back seat. Amirite?
Lots of reasons for this interruption in my schedule. It feels good to get this episode in the can at last.
Hey, lookit the poll down there. Cast your vote for the android’s name!
Sorry, spacers, but CK will be postponed this week. There’s just too much on my plate at the moment! Hang in there!

Hey Spacers! I don’t want to leave another Sunday uncomicked, so let me post this postcard from space! We’ll be back to the story soon! (This is not part of the story.. just a pic til I get back on schedule.)
