A slightly modified page of an unused comic I made for Borrowed Tails. The original drawing was inspired in this cat, Andy, but it didn’t really look like him, so that’s what I fixed. He is one of the best cats I’ve met in the world… He’s sick right now so his owners are making a funding for him and I contributed with this drawing theyre printing as a postcard.
During the annual egg hunting days kuš! invites you to hunt for Easter egg specials. The prices of randomly chosen š!, kuš! or mini kuš! will be massively reduced on the kuš! webshop for a limited time, changing every now and then until the end of the hunt on Monday night.
