Since I am waiting to go roast to death I was looking through my art folder(s) and came across these.
For those of you who may not get it for a while a little novel I'd written was meant to be published by an independent publishing company, however over the last 2 years they've made promises and had a ton of issues so at this point it's release has been delayed indefinitely.
Anyway, it was basically a story based around Asian influenced mythology and creatures, the story beginning in Egypt before being set primarily in Tibet and then later in China.
As you can see the main creatures in this book were cats. The cats you see here are 4 of the 'Wise Ones' -- mainly godlike creatures that take the form of cats among men. They control elements as well as time and are eternal.
The main protagonist is a young cat named Tika and and her brother, Kiro. Their lives go from average to extraordinary when a beastly presence called 'The Chaos' begins to take over the land, threatening animal and humankind alike.
Alongside a band of several other high class warrior class felines, Tika and Kiro are sent off to seek the help of the reclusive and elusive 'Wise Ones'; beings that walk among both worlds.
A story of mystery, adventure, myth, and even a bit of humour... this story was one I'd been working on for years.
It sounds cheesy from the description I guess but those that read the manuscript enjoyed it so, can't too bad. I know I had a lot of fun writing and doing the research for it.
However, now it's been put on the back burner until I can reedit it and then find another more promising publishing company which will actually make due on their promises and stuff.
Anyway, have a couple promo posters from last year which were going to be part of the promo perk at some local book stores once I had the books to give them.
I tried to go for a simpler 'Anime' style here because the place I was getting these printed said it would be easier to print the simpler it was. Not to mention cost lol (I was buying these all out of my own pocket soooo :I they had to be affordable).

PS: Please do not ask about which publishing company it was. I'd sooner not talk about it... and it's not my place to go blabbing about someone else's business. They're no longer in business anyway.
