About the Project
Cashmere Sky is a fantasy adventure graphic novel attempting to recreate the magic of what cartoons and animation did for us growing up. It’s described as a retro-future world with “solarpunk” tones bringing together an exciting brew of airships, electricity, and an alien race of cat-like people. The project is heavily inspired by TV and feature film animation pulling from many twentieth century trends.
The style and concepts are derived by many past inspirations including Fred Quimby, Chuck Jones, Preston Blair, and Hanna Barbera while moving to later inspirations such as Glen Keane, Don Bluth, and Bill Watterson. The idea is to tell a fun and epic adventure in the true spirit of what cartoons do for us as a kid, yet with a modern approach and deeper themes, all while falling in love with a great cast of characters. It can be thought that Cashmere Sky attempts to be like a feature film on paper.
