Castialpaca by Launchycat
Castialpaca

One of the (many) things I drew last weekend during CM:MK. Quiet con, but apparently pretty good as far as inspiration was concerned. Prints coming soon.

Speaking of cons, I'm going to be at Birmingham MCM this weekend! If you're in the area, do stop by my table and say hi!

This Is Radio by Launchycat
This Is Radio
One of my more well-known bits of art. Drawn sometime around Halloween last year, after I saw someone mention Halloween in Night Vale. Obviously, this was one opportunity I couldn't pass up.

Khoshekh kitten 3/6

The lesser-known danger of drawing pictures of cats - it’s very hard to stop. 

I decided I wanted to bring something to give to the Night Vale folks at the live show in London. I soon learned that drawing adorable monster-kittens is very engaging.

Also, just a little reminder that I'm going to be running a table at Collectormania Milton Keynes this weekend! If you're around, do stop by and say hi!

Working on making more pony profiles/future badges in the style of this one. First batch: Whooves, Derpy and, by request, Trixie. More to follow.

I’ll be honest. The last year hasn’t been an amazing one for me. I’m not one to go into personal details on a public site - suffice to say, there were many ups and downs, which meant any progress towards transitioning from aspiring artist to professional, full-time illustrator has been slow. I still can’t say I feel like I’m 100% there, but, having gotten myself somewhat back on my feet, I’ve decided to put my foot down.

If I want to be taken seriously as a professional artist, it’s time to start acting like one. Not to say that I’m suddenly going to turn into an “all work and no play” sort, but it’s easy to see now that a few things haven’t quite been up to standard - to the point that this page, for example, ended up falling into disrepair altogether. To that effect, I am now officially back.

On top of that, I've also made a few other changes, and am planning a few more.

  • The first is dropping L.C. Khatt as my writing/art alias. It’s served me well for a while, and I’ll look back to my time using it fondly, but after much deliberation, I realised three things: 1)it adds an (unnecessary) third layer of complication on top of my usual nickname (i.e. Launchycat); 2)far more people know me by the aforementioned nickname, in all likelyhood because 3)Launchycat is also more memorable (this probably all sounded more coherent in my head). Anyway, the point is dolphins that I felt it was time for change, and the first step of that change is rebranding L.C. Khatt into what is now Launchycat Studio. Which brings me to the second change:
  • Websites! As of yesterday, launchycat.comis officially up and running. In addition to that, you can also find me on TumblrGoogle+Facebook,Twitter and Etsy. And finally,
  • Regular updates. It's all well and good saying that I'm back, but I can hardly expect other people to pay attention when I myself display the attention-span and reliability of a grapefruit. I'll start off by getting my artwork up to date, then, should all go to plan, will be carrying on with a steady stream of fresh updates.

So there you have it. Sorry about the long rant, but I felt I needed to get this out there. I’ve promised regular updates in the past and failed miserably, which is just one of the reasons why I want this time to go differently. Many thanks to everyone who’s stood by me all this time. I’ll do my best to live up to it.

Indeed I am. I should be looking mostly like this (though chances are I won't have the coat on for most of the day).

I assume you're going to be at the comic village again?
