I'll admit, I'm rather new to the comic biz...only been working on comic related projects for over a year now.   While my strongest suit is as a writer, I figure if I don't use my artistic ability I'll never see it become what it could be.  

Spellbound and Senseless is actually a fairly recent concept that came to me.  Being a fan of Garfield for thirty years, the real challenge was to create characters that anyone could identify with, so I leaned hard towards reality and picked two different body types.  Sabine would become a Turkish Angora, and I kept a lot of t he breed traits with her, including copper/orange eyes, although technically she is the combination of two cats; a cat I had in the first year of my marriage (appearance) and our current oldest cat (attitude).  I suppose you could call her my "straight cat". 

Sparkles is essentially one of those "free to a good home" kittens, which I based off of my own "free to a good home" kitten.  And like any kitten, she's going to be the source of all kinds of interesting trouble.

 

and speaking of trouble, I'm going to be risking it in the future, cause there's cat based humor already out there that I'm planning on taking a few pot-shots at...bwaaahahaha!

 

Also; look forward to some of my other comics!  Currently in the works; Gamer Girl and the Dice of Fate (from the number of gaming related comics I've seen here, I may be in good company!)  Crumbshoe Detective a 1940's style noir thriller....cast with anthropomorphic sweets.  The Dracos, dragons and half-dragons in a modern world fighting for survival.  Whisper in the Gears, a Steampunk monster fantasy. 

That said, I'm sure everyone can agree posting a strip a week when you've got that much to work on isn't a bad idea.
