Snazzy Cat Capers Inktober 2018!Read More
Thanks to so many of our friends and the supportive Kelowna community (including the Innovation Centre and Mosaic Books!), the Snazzy Cat Capers book launch was SO MUCH FUN! We had over 150 people come to celebrate with us and check out the art installation we created that showcased the process of how Snazzy Cat Capers went from idea to a published series with Macmillan’s Imprint.
Yesterday, with the help of a couple of friends, we set up our Snazzy Cat Capers art display in Kelowna's Innovation Centre! It will be there for the whole month of September and we hope you'll go take a look at it. If you're planning on coming to the Snazzy Cat Capers Official Book Launch, you can take it in then.
While there's some cool "final" art on display, it actually aims to show the messy process of idea to publication. Everyone's publication and creative process is different. Snazzy Cat Capers started as a graphic novel with the fish as the protagonist and morphed into a chapter book series with the villain cat, Ophelia von Hairball as the protagonist.
The display shows rough art, rejections, rough drafts, and talks about some of the adventures along the way. It's a glimpse into our personal journeys with this book series. We hope you can check it out... and we hope you'll come to the book launch party!
Snazzy Cat Capers, the book about the world's #1 cat burglar didn't start with a cat, but with a fish. Deanna Kent and Neil Hooson talk about Ophelia von Hairball V of Burglaria and how her idea was born... from behind a fish bowl.Read More
