My name is Charlie, but online I'm known as Kobbzz or Ko. I'm from the UK and I graduated from Derby University in 2015 with a degree in Illustration.

My passion is story telling - I've written both books and comic series before, and now hope to focus solely on graphic novels. I write both human and animal based stories, mostly with cats or other felines. My current project, 'Home' (working title) is a graphic novel based on real pet cats I own, or have owned in the past.



'Home' is a story I began to work on after my oldest cat, Cuddles (known as C in the series) passed away. Why do cats leave home to die? Who is enforcing this law, and what happens when that law is disrespected and broken? The story is told from the point of view of Lea-Scarlett, an aging tortieshell cat who dreams big, travels far, and remains in constant turmoil over the passing of C and the build-up to his death. Most of the story is based on true events, but a lot of it is fictional, with some fantasy/dream-like elements included.



'You see, we are divided, in a way, by our beliefs. Some, like myself, are said to be 'gifted' with the ability to dream. Others are not. They lack such an ability, and so look to logic to form their beliefs. They believe they are the smart ones, and the rest of us simply need to wake up.

They call us crazy. I say they haven't yet lived.'




I've invested years into developing this project, creating concept art, experimenting with different styles and thinking up unique ways to tell this visual story. Now the comic pages themselves need to be made! With your help and support, not only will 'Home' be available as a web series, but you'll be able to purchase a physical copy of the book once all the chapters are complete. You'll have access to each chapter as it's published, sneak peeks of works in progress, character biographies, photos and videos of the real cats the main cast is based on, older design/concept work from the early stages, story notes, the chance for your own cats to be included as background characters, colouring competitions, and much more!

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my project! I can't wait to get started.
