I’ve finally finished a comic that I’ve been working on for what seems like a very long time. I was going to write a post explaining it, but I’ve realised there’s no point. It exists because I wanted to make it, and with all the love in the world, I don’t care if anyone likes it.
Anonymous asked: are you intending to release a physical collection of all the catfoxwolf things you do? Because I would buy a copy. I would buy 12 copies. I would buy exactly 150 copies and build a safety nest of catfoxwolf.
Thank you so much for saying so! Maybe someday. To put it succintly, right now I just don’t have the resources to make it happen - emotional or financial. I am terrible at everything to do with generating, keeping, asking for, spending, or caring about money. I find the prospect of trying to produce and monetise a physical thing immensely stressful, and it would keep me from doing what I actually want to do, which is just Make More Art. Artists should absolutely be paid for their work, but I’m not in a place to make a living from this comic right now, so if I’m going to be working on it, I want to work on the parts I enjoy, and not on editing, printing, marketing, processing orders for and shipping a book that is likely never gonna pay for itself.
Plus there’s some weird part of me that feels like if I start selling proper merchandise, I’m entering into a sort of contract with my audience, like I have obligations beyond supplying them with the object they paid me for. I don’t know how to explain it, and I don’t know what that obligation is, I just know I’m afraid of it. I’m still learning to distinguish between what there’s a market for, what society values and what I value. Right now what I value is this: my time is my own, I get to draw whatever I want and I don’t owe anybody anything.
Thanks to you and everybody that reads the comics, and a special thank you to the…like, 8 people who have ever tried to pay me for my work.
u ma peeps.
abnormalous asked: So what's Cat doing while all of this is going on?
That’s an interesting question. Hiding out, I guess? Keeping a low profile.

Ok, two birds with one boule.
