On making Wet Food at Home for your Growing Kitten is a 14-page (yay! longish!) graphic story I wrote and drew (with Manta Ray comics) for The Obliterary Journal Vol 2, published by Blaft. The book is fleshed around everything to do with Meat, and the story explores what happens to four people (and a cat) (and a dog), love, loss and lots of foodideology.
The story really began with Brinda Baliga, who knew what she wanted (“pyoor” veg only, pliss) and what she didn’t want (anything to do with meat) and a kitten that she suddenly had to Deal With. (Then there was Mincho Mondal, a complicated nemesis gnawing on a meat-tainted toothbrush.) This is an adapt of the first thing I drew about Brinda and the Kitten (for whom wet food gets made. At home).
But where the lines began to blur was with Andres and Torby Delano, the mushroom-twins. These guys sure do need a hug, in the middle of the story, and I don’t know if they got it. But you can order custom-grown mushrooms from them online, it seems.
Things get thick and convoluted, for the how and why and what-really??! grab a copy of the book and read the story.
