Of Cats Past, Part One

I looked through my archive to see when I drew my first cat-comic – and it’s this one, from 1999, about my sweet albeit a bit grumpy Scottish kitty Djinn:

I’m pleasantly surprised with the way I drew Djinn, and I really like the dream-sequence. But I’m less enthusiastic about the way I drew myself, I was going for some funny abstract comic figure, but to me it now mostly reflects how I could not grasp my self-image in that period – both graphically and metaphysically.

This comic was originally in Dutch – I translated it just now and lettered it with my own handwriting font I made on www.myscriptfont.com. It’s a quick, easy and free way to make your own font!
