Project Tabby

In the last post, I did a call out to anyone interested in been a background character in my current project.

So :
What is this project?

I’m calling it Project Tabby until I finalise the name. The basic premise is Tabby’s (the protaginist cat) idyllic lifestyle is turned upside down when another family of cats enter the neighborhood. The story is split into 3 Acts with a short epilogue.

Writing this has been difficult as one of the challenges was to be able to tell the story without any of the cats “speaking“. The concept would the artwork and sequential panels would be enough to convey the story without the main characters talking. (Think the montage at the beginning of Up!)

So :
How can you tell a story without talking?

Most of it will have to do with facial expressions. (This is made harder when the characters aren’t human!) I have included the rough sketches done by P. R. Dedelis. This is the other family of cats being chased out from their neighborhood before deciding to move into Tabby’s area.

I’ll continue to post updates on the creation of this graphic novel! Keep checking back to this site for updates.
