Kitty and Cadaver

My new multimedia online project is now up and running!

Kitty and Cadaver is the story of a rock and roll band that saves the world from monsters. It's a story about a young woman with a mysterious past who does makeup for the dead, until the day the dead all sit up and take a bit too much interest in her. It's the story of love and loss. It's the story of a zombie apocalypse that maybe isn't one, on the streets of Melbourne.

The Kitty and Cadaver project involves a story being told online, with songs and art, a craft project and eventually a comic book. Who knows what else may come out of it?

Visit Kitty and Cadaver to subscribe to the blog and see what's going on!

You can now download the first six chapters for your e-reader. Catch up with the story!

The Kitty Jewellery project – making jewellery out of broken musical instruments – is now underway. Check out our Etsy store for necklaces, earrings, hair sticks and (in due course) more! - including this hair stick made from a violin bow and peg.
