About Me

Aerokat, Poecat or just Cindy.... Or you could call me the cat lady.... I got a lot of cats. Seriously, in the future, I will be the crazy cat lady that rambles on nonsense and takes in strays.

blaxkMy name is Cindy Ramey, you can call me Aerokat or Poecat… I will answer to any of those names. I have been drawing all my life it seems. I started drawing some weird like punk rocker cats, that seems to be a mix between Jem and the Holograms and Top Cat.

The next thing I remember drawing a whole lot was “TMNT” back in the 80’s. I drew the heck out of “TMNT”. LOL… I even made up a whole alternate turtle verse with girl turtles.  I drew “TMNT” fan art up till around 6th and 7th grade. I had seen an episode of “Dog City: and wanted to make my own world of Cat Cops. And that is where the “Nightshift” (CK Agencts) came from.  I drew little 12 page comics of the CK Agent crew a couple times. I do have those comics still around here somewhere.

There was another comic that I drew a lot of… but its in the box and I’ve not looked at it for a long time. It’s called “The Black Tailed Terror”. Can you guess where this character came from? If you said “Darkwing Duck” The you got it. LOL

I didn’t come up with “Starfire Agency” until around 2004.  And “Hellkats” in 2012. I have many other stories and short comics laying around. I would love to show them to you all. But until I can work on comic art full time. They shall stay in the box. :3

FAQ

When did you start drawing comics?

I started drawing like quick comic short comics when I was in grade school. But I never really started putting all the little short comics into an actual story until I had graduated college

Can you teach me how to draw?

I can’t actually teach you, I don’t feel that I am a very good teacher. But I do say that you need to draw everyday and study what you are drawing. You should either purchase a human anatomy book, or go online (since the web has everything right?) and look up some basic human anatomy images. You don’t want to go this boring route? Then I suggest that you look up some Marvel or DC superhero comics online or purchase at your local comic shop and study the poses. This is how I started learning myself.

What is the process you use when drawing comics?

In the past, I would draw my comic pages and make up the story as I went along. THIS becomes a hard thing to do after awhile.  So for a while now I have been going by a script for each comic. It makes things so much easier.  After the script is final. I will draw out thumbnails of each page. Then I will draw the thumbnails into comic pages.

Can I email you my idea for a comic?

No. Please do not.  Emails with stories and ideas will be deleted without being read.  While I do encourage creativity, I do not want to be put into a position where I am accused of stealing… because I may have a similar idea that hasn’t yet happened in my comics.

Can you draw my comic if I pay you?

Right now, No… My plate is full at the moment. Besides that, there are certain things I look for when being proposed comic work. But if you would like to commission a few pages for yourself, just email me.

When will you have new comics out?

As soon as I can. I am usually working by myself on my own comics. Though I have an awesome buddy that has started coloring when she can. [/bra_toggle]

Can I help you?

Right now, I can’t pay much to people for their services. And I don’t feel right accepting your services for free. There are certain things I look for when finding people to work with.  BUT, there is a way you can help me. You can help support the comics with donations and Patreon!

Why do you draw a lot of cats?!

I LOVE cats…. I thought everyone knew that >_>

The Artwork here has all been created with Bristol paper,  Copic Markers and some Prismacolor pencils. I need to break out my Copics and add more art to this gallery. 

PENCILS

CRUX

CRUX… was a comic that I put together in college, for a graphic design class. I spent the whole semester coming up with the plot, characters and finally making to actual comic.

CK AGENTS

Before the comic was titled Nightshift… it was called CK Agents. The CK stood for Carter Kenrick, who was suppose to be the leader of these agents. These pages are from 1993.
