I was just digging through some old files and found these, my first pass on what i thought "Skeleton Cat" might look like. I originally envisioned him as a kind of scruffy older Scatman Crothers type character who loved to drum on trash and would get shoes hurled at him, a little insight into the behind the scenes of illustrating a picture book: the date on the file said 4/30/09 as in 2009 and that book just came out in July that's almost 4 years from initial sketches to "on the shelf".
