Crittertude is a wry photographic portrait of the secret world of ferrets, dogs, cats and birds all forced to live together under one roof. Part comic-strip, part photographic documentary, Happiness is a Warm Tush presents us with the often conflicting views and fantasy realm of these extraordinary household pets in full-color, comic book format. From the innocence of Mady the squiggly ferret to the diabolical plans of the nefarious black sneaky cat, Crittertude is a place where life is magically transformed from the daily doldrum of existence to the realm of fantasy, imagination and the occasional unplanned mayhem.
Happiness is a Warm Tush is Crittertude's first publication in a 10″ x 8″ format and features the entire cast on the front cover. In many ways, this book truly represents the best that we feel that Crittertude has to offer by showing the true innocent nature of our various and assorted pets. Observant viewers may note that the background image is actually the image from our third volume, stretched across both the back and front cover. We've worked hard to make this book both a work of art and of passion, and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we loved making it!
Aliens Have Taken Our Cat! is a perfect continuation for fans of the comic strip and a nostalgic experience for those who remember it fondly. We had fun designing this particular book with the transition to an 8.5" x 8.5" format which we felt gave a better flow to the size of the comics. We promise: No black sneaky cats or java rice finches were harmed in the making of the cover of this book! In this second volume, we were able to include many of the newly developed plots, twists and turns that were introduced into the comic strip. By this point, we had a good feel for how the personalities of the pets should play out and, surprisingly enough, found that they reflected their true selves even more so.
This third volume kept in line with the 8.5" x 8.5" book format and featured Mady the squiggly ferret on the front cover. Interestingly enough, he's sleeping on an old baby blanket from years past which gives it a double nostalgic meaning for us. Occasionally, we wonder, what does a ferret dream about?
