Several weeks ago we exhibited for our second year at CatConLA, which is, as far as I know, the worlds only convention specifically for cat people. There are plenty of cat shows of course, where people show off all kinds of fancy schmancy cat breeds (I'm partial to Abyssinians), but this is drastically different. The organizers describe the event as a comic con for cat people, and I agree that the pop culture atmosphere is highly reminiscent.
One of my favorite activities at conventions, whether they be cat cons or comic cons, is meeting and networking with the other exhibitors. That's how I first met Mary from Outlaw Kritters, and how I've now been introduced to Stacy from Sweet Rolling Pins. You can see a sample of their wares in the giveaway banner, along with my maniacally mood enhanced Happy Cat, appearing now for the first time on a ceramic mug.
The three of us decided to get together and do a cat-themed giveaway with the hope that you, our cat peeps, will introduce us to your other cat peeps so that we can all be cat peeps together. Plus two of these collective cat peeps will get to take home a cache of cool kitty swag.
This giveaway will end at Midnight MST on Tuesday, August 2, 2016, so if you've read my letter a little too late and you want to hear about future giveaways before they actually end, as well as announcements about new artwork and artist appearances at shows like CatConLA, then consider yourself invited to subscribe to my newsletter.
If you do enter the giveaway then I wish you the best of luck. And also, I dearly want to see a selfie of you wearing your new Outlaw Kitty metalwear while partaking of cat-stamped baked goods with a Happy Cat morning brew.
