All Black Cats Are Not Alike – The Illustrated Book Kickstarter Campaign


All Black Cats Are Not Alike Kickstarter Campaign

Cynthia: I was perusing the awesome Kate Benjamin’s Hauspanther site and I came across her post about Studio Goldsparkle’s kickstarter campaign.

Studio Goldsparkle is campaigning to create an illustrated book about black cats called, All Black Cats Are Not Alike.


Mockup of All Black Cats Are Not Alike

Marcy:  So?

Cynthia:  So Peter Arkle is an amazing illustrator whose work appears in Time Magazine and the New Yorker, and Amy Goldwasser is a super talented editor and writer. They love cats and will feature 50 distinct black cats in their book.

One of the rewards is a chance to nominate a black cat to join the All Black Cat Casting Call. Winners of the casting call will be featured in the book. Isn’t that so fantastic?

Marcy (shrugging):  Not really.

Cynthia (excitedly):  Aw c’mon! Guess who I’m nominating?

Marcy (exasperated):  But I’m not a black cat. I’m white cat with black markings. Sometimes I wonder about your powers of observation.

Cynthia:  Oh… uh… I meant that I’m nominating Penelope Kitten.


Penelope Kitten learns she’s nominated for All Black Cats Are Not Alike 

penelope kitten (squeaking):  me?

Marcy:  Gasp. You wouldn’t.

Cynthia:  Why not? It would be a great opportunity for Penelope Kitten if she were chosen. Don’t you want our Pkitty to be just as famous as you?

Marcy:  No.

penelope kitten (squeaking loudly):  photo shoot playtime!

Penelope Kitten excitedly hops and flops and crashes into Marcy trying to figure out her best side for photos. 

penelope kitten:  this is my best side. no this is. no this. wait. this is the best…

this no this how about this wait this is the best

Marcy is disgusted. She stalks off, whipping her tail back and forth.

Cynthia:  Ahhhhh… Marcy… where are you going in such a huff?

Marcy:  Off to start my own Kickstarter campaign. It’s an interactive media project called Big Sister Revenge.

*Only a few days left to contribute and nominate your favorite black cat to Goldsparkle’s Kickstarter campaign for ALL BLACK CATS Are Not Alike.
