Pieces of Cait
Help I've fallen into an obsession with a bunch of fictional French revolutionaries and I can't get up. I draw a lot and write a little. Sometimes I even remember to update my Redbubble with stuff from here!

Baby’s first exhibition sale <3
It is my birthday today, and to ring in my 30s I kicked off my very first solo art exhibition!
It features all of my Miserable(s) Month pieces, and it’s so lovely to see them all framed and hung up together. This project gives me a lot of emotions, and they’re all lovely emotions.

Hello! just wanted to say, I got my link to the PDF of your Miserable Month and it looks fantastic! I'm so glad I got the preorder, there are definitely illos I missed and they are all so wonderful! Thanks for making them available this way!
Hello!
Thank you! I have been hoarding this ask for weeks because it brings me such joy to read - this little zine project has consumed so much of my life these past few months, and there’s definitely been moments I’ve wanted to walk away from it completely, BUT! I DIDN’T! And I am so so so proud of how everything has turned out!
Also - as of today all of the preorders are officially on their way! (Technically they have been for a fortnight, but I called in some help with posting to take the edge off of shipping rates between Australia and the US, and that leg of the shipping took a hot minute)
Everyone that ordered a copy should have received an email through Etsy with their tracking number by now, and they should be arriving within the next week or so! I am so excited for people to finally be getting their copies, and I am so so thankful for everyone that supported this project!
Once all the zines arrive at their new homes I’ll be listing my leftover copies on my Etsy store, so if anyone wanted one but missed out on the preorder window keep an eye out for that :)

Here are the Amis illustrations from our Banguette collab!
You can find these scattered throughout Reset - both in the short film and the fic!
I’ve never done a proper line up of the crew, but I had a lot of fun with their designs here and it’s got me keen to tackle one!

Reset - A Les Amis Short Film
A rally doesn't go as expected, and Enjolras receives help working through it.
My contribution to @thebanguette is a collaboration between myself, @shitpostingfromthebarricade and @thepiecesofcait!
shitpostingfromthebarricade wrote the fic that you can read here!
thepiecesofcait drew the art featured in the short film!
And @maroonwombat and I made the short film!
For all my followers out there who aren't into angst--THIS IS THE SHORT FILM FOR YOU. Shitpostingfromthebarricade wrote a lovely little story about how important it is to always try again, even when it feels impossible and, of course, about the power of friendship. Thepiecesofcait's art featured in the film helps bring that power alive in a simple, yet elegant way that's sure to bring a smile to your face.
Subtitles are available! Just hit the CC button.
Thank for watching!

Enjolras closes the door behind him with even composure. His breath is a firm three beats in, three beats out through the removal of his shoes and the hanging up of his backpack, and when he fills a glass of water at the sink, his hands are perfectly steady.
He is not upset.

I had the unimaginable delight of partnering with @shitpostingfromthebarricade and @thecandlesticksfromlesmis for @thebanguette this year and am so extremely hyped to share the sum of our efforts!
You can read the (phenomenal) fic here and watch the (incredible) short film here.
This project was something so far outside of anything I’ve ever attempted before and it’s just been an utter joy to work with such a spectacular crew. I hope y’all enjoy it!

Hi, I was wondering if you know what happened to gopuckurself? I'm always nervous when someone fully disappears with no warning but especially during a pandemic
Hey Anon!
Please rest assured that gopuckurself is doing okay - life just got pretty hectic for them, but he should be back online some time soon!

I apparently never properly shared this video here, but here's a timelapse of how I created the cover for my Miserable(s) Month zine!
It goes for 15 minutes, but it covers the full process from digital rough sketch, through lightbox transfer, detailing and inking, and finishing with digital polishing. It was A BEAST and it's pretty much exactly what I did for most of the pieces that appear in the zine!

Friendly reminder that preorders close this weekend!
Tumblr media
Guess who finally turned their Miserable(s) Month artworks into a zine which is officially as of right now available for PREORDER!
You can have it one of three ways!
A PDF Download;
An A5 physical copy of the zine; or
A bundle of goodies, featuring the zine + three A5 prints + a funky holographic Candlesticker!
Also! I filmed a time-lapse of how this cover came together to give a little look into the ink process I use. You can find that here!
I’ve been chipping away at this project for so long, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share these with y’all!

It's them! So excited to finally share this layout from the romantic half of the @lesmiszine - it partners @permets-2's fantastic fic: tomorrow's sun hasn't risen (but our sneakers are tied and the city is wide) This piece was such break from my usual layout and I high key adore how it turned out!

Well well well if it isn't Hands Clasped Tight zine sharing time!
Here is one of the two illustrations I did - this one appears in the platonic half of the zine and goes alongside the wonderful found-family piece - Today We're Changing History - written by @fuckyeahlesmiserables
I had a lot of fun with this, and really enjoyed getting to work alongside the litany of the other fabulously talented contributors involved with the @lesmiszine <3
A huge thank you to everyone who purchased a copy!

Enjolras & Feuilly Sailor AU!
Can't believe it's taken me so long to post this STUNNING commission by @thepiecesofcait! Please, please click for full quality so you can see the beautiful detail in the stars and the fold of sails and spray of the water.
This piece is now hanging in my kitchen so I can look at it every morning. Tell me you don't get instant wanderlust gazing at this beauty.
Also, Cait is currently talking preorders for her beautiful Les Mis Zine full of gorgeous art! Go look!

Is there a deadline to ordering the zine? Because I’m an idiot when it comes to ordering stuff and I don’t want to miss it if there might be a deadline!!!
Hello! What an excellent question, and one I definitely intended to include the answer to in my original post!
The Zine preorder window closes at midday on May 9 (GMT+8 timezone)
I will be rounding my stock orders up, and once all the preorders have made it to their new homes I’ll be listing the leftovers on my Etsy, so if you miss out on this round or the current timing will hit your budget too hard there will be another chance!
