    The making of Cat X by Oleg Tischenkov

    Overview   Process  

    When e-mailing the author about reprinting the first two Cat-books the manager suddenly learns about the new one: “...and the new book that I’ve almost finished—let’s start with it. It will be called Cat X. Naming it Cat 3 doesn’t seem like a good idea in the first place, but the more important thing is that in 2013 it will be ten years since I drew the first cat-cartoon. So it’ll be like OS X.”

    The author finishes the last chapters in Cuba.
