My new e-book "Sekey on Planet Earth".

The story behind this book begins about 4 years ago, when I started working on a comic strip about a cat from outer space searching for some evil little beings called the Ukee, that have arrived on Earth to eat everything they find in their way.

(This is an example of the original comic strip written in 2009 and in spanish.)

About a year after that I decided to write and illustrate the children’s book based on that original comic strip.
The main character in the story is Sekey. To create this character I was inspired by one of our own cats, Ezequiel, believe it or not she’s a female cat, but how she ended up with that name is another long story. She’s a thin small thing, but with the soul of a true fighter. 

(Our cat  Ezequiel)

She arrived at our home 13 years ago as a stray kitten, and in these 13 years she’s overcome many diseases and physical hardships. If bravery can be attributed to animals, I think she’s a fine example. That’s why I chose her to be the hero in this story.

(This is an original illustration from the book.)

All the other feline characters in the book are also based on some of our other cats, some have already passed on, some are still with us today.

The book is about friendship specially with someone that is different in some way, and about what true friendship is about, all mixed up with lots of adventures. You can buy it through Amazon.com, clicking on the link below:
