I said that this pussy would be taking over and I wasn't kidding!
For those of you who don't know SUBO'S CAT is the brainchild of HarperCollins Non Fiction department, who, in February 2010 took on a little bit more than they could chew in the form of work experience girl Anastasia Catris. During my time there, my editor was pitching a brand new illustrated book inspired by Susan Boyle and her love of cats. But, she did not have an illustrator. Upon learning that I had been to art school, I was asked to help illustrate and design the pitch. The pitch was successful and I was asked to sign up as the book's official illustrator.
Over the coming months the editorial team worked together devising jokes and visual comedy based on the rise of Susan Boyle as well as satirical comments on reality TV and modern popular culture.
Now, only 6 months, 24 holiday-free weekends, 2 weeks worth of all-nighters, 3000 cups of coffee and 2000 cans of Red Bull later (did I mention that I had a full time job as well as this 112 page book to deal with?) SUBO'S CAT is finally ready for publication!
The book will be published by HarperCollins UK in Hardback format on 14th October and will be available in all major retailers as well as for pre-order via various websites. So get your copy well you can! Susan Boyle may have dreamed the dream, but this is the story of her nightmare.
This is Susan Boyle's tabloid fairy tale as never told before - through the eyes of her beloved cat, Pebbles. But Pebbles isn't your average cute kitty; this pushy pussy engineered SuBo's rise to fame and fortune for its own ends. but with great success comes great excess. From bingeing on Miaow Miaow to blowing it all on diamanté collars, this megalomaniac moggy is a salient reminder of the perils of power in our times.
SUBO'S CAT is more than just the story of the woman who dreamed a dream and the cat who got the cream. It's the cat who got the cream and then projectile vomited it, Excorcist style, into the face of any who stood in its path.
Warning: This book is not for pussies... it's for people.
