2017 is the year of Stan and Tim's Imaginative Adventures

Between one reason and another poor SnT (Stan and Tim) have been off the page for a while.

How we miss their purrs and meows...

Well this year will see their return! 

A story sketched out and some warm up painted sketches

Stay tuned for some updates and concept sketches of future stories.

THE SHREWSBURY INTERNATIONAL COMIC ART FESTIVAL

Meow meow!

It's been a while (lots of cat naps ...as well as Mikey being busy with other work) but we're active and looking for more Imaginative Adventures!

A table has been booked for The Shrewsbury International Comic Art Festival and we plan to be there with Volume 2.

Mikey has already been warming up his sketching and paint skills to give the next comic a slightly different feel..

If you have a cat you know that weird licking chest technique they have.

Slim line, super thin line, red pencil line...

...brown line... the artist has many decisions to make in his creative process.

There's three stories for the next volume already being written and soon to be illustrated.

STAY TUNED!

Raising tails with excitement as Stan and Tim help raise money for Cramar

Hi Kitty Fans!

Some new and exciting news to announce:

Stan and Tim's Imaginative Adventures comic creator (artist/writer), Mikey (that's me), loves to help out disadvantaged cats.

When I go to Spain to visit my girlfriend, Pilar, I have come across an area of Spain that has a "stray cat problem". I often see in the streets, parks and industrial areas lots of stray cats and their kittens. So many are under fed and even have infected wounds - it's such a sad sight to see. 


While in Spain I try and do my part to help the cats by buying cat treats and food and feed those we see...


Word has got out - human has treats.

Mikey: "Hola, gato!" Cat: "Buenos dias, señor humana!"


C-can I have some more? (but in kitty Spanish of course)

Not posing - honest. Didn't realise how many photos Pilar had taken of me and the cats.
Meanwhile back in the UK in the West Midlands....

There is a wonderful organisation where cats are looked after, taken in, rescued, and put up for adoption. That place is: Cramar Cat Rescue & Sanctuary 
After seeing countless updates on Cramar's  Facebook page, I wanted to do my bit to help the cats at Cramar and make sure they are kept fed, treated for any illnesses and get any toys and beds required as well as looking after the feral cats who can't be homed through adoption.

I will be attending a number of Cramar fund raising events this year and offering my caricature and pet cartoon portrait skills to help raise money. Any sales I make through on the spot caricatures or through pet cartoon portraits on these days I will donate all proceeds to Cramar.

Cone Head

So a while ago Stan had to wear a cone on his head. A "cone of shame" to borrow a term from Pixar's 'Up'.

Tim was fascinated by what Stan was wearing and followed him around for a while. Whether it was brotherly concern or he just liked to stare at Stan in amusement we aren't sure... but it inspired this comic strip - enjoy and please share.

Full story available in the Stan and Tim's Imaginative Adventures Vol 1

"Cave"

A recap to "Cave" all in one go as purr the new webcomic format.

The REAL Stan and Tim adventures update

Hi S&T fans,

I hope you have been enjoying the comic strip stories recently. Feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think and for those kids who read it feel free to send your own drawings of Stan and Tim in: mikeyb@theartyone.co.uk

So as you may already know Stan and Tim are based on two real cats of the same names. They maybe not be the kittens you see in the comic stories any more (they grow up so fast! *sniff*) but they still get up to some amusing and exciting things.

They have been house cats for a few years now and one weekend recently, after moving from a flat to a house, they got their chance to step outside into the real world...



Brave little steps into a big scary world for the boys.

"This is as far as we go ...today." - Stan and Tim

They weren't outside for long before they got a bit scared, overwhelmed and cold. No doubt it won't be long until they're in and out all the time.
