Holy crap woke up to the news that "House Cat Sez" made #10 in the Round 2 Jam. Aiee!


Thanks, everyone! And be sure to check out all the entries.


Extra thanks to Corey and Michael for voices, and Anangi for checking over the script.

One year today, I posted "Ask a Cat" here on NG, as well as YouTube.



I've animated before, but this is the first time I truly animated a short from start to finish. I actually wrote the script back in 2018, when I was still working for "Pencilmation". I pitched it to them, but they turned it down as they decided not to produce other series.


Fast forward to 2020, early in the global pandemic, I decided I wanted to give animation a shot again when I remembered I wrote this script. I dug it out and decided to finish it. This took some doing but after about 2 months I had enough footage animated.


It got a good reaction, even winning a Daily 4th Place on NG. This sparked a huge boost in me wanting to do more with animating, and I saw a huge potential as at this point I felt I hit the brick wall with webcomics, which I've been doing non-strop for years at that point.


Looking at it again, I've gotten much better at animating since then. Here's hoping I'll continue to improve a year from now.

My goal last year with the 2nd Fuzzy Princess book was to launch it in conventions. Obviously that didn't happen.

I am, however, shipping copies out. Consider getting one at my shop

I overhauled my Patreon page to put more emphasis on my animation projects. Any little bit helps ensure that I can create cartoons on a consistent basis, as well as making it easier to hire voice actors and other artistic talents.


Here's a new promo vid:



Every little bit helps! Check it out at https://www.patreon.com/smallbug
