When I first started creating things and posted them on my website, I had twenty-five flyers printed with my website address, my Instagram account and my email address. I thought that I'd leave them around London and use that as a way to spur interest in what I was doing. It turns out it was expensive, maybe not all that effective, and frankly a bit repetitive.

So now I've decided that I'd do something a bit different. I've used some blank watercolour postcards to do a bit of calligraphy in Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, Manchu, Pashto, Kurdish or whatever, and I'm leaving them about. Each one is different and each one was handcrafted. If you've found one, see what else you might have gotten. If not, keep your eye out for one of these messages in a café near you.

A bit about the artist.

Oh, hello there! I'm Michael, the


creator of Chubby Kitten (and the


various other things that you might

find on this website). I grew up in


Canada, but I've lived in a few


different places before ending up


in London. Most of my time is spent

doing serious things, usually with


books and stuff like that. In my


spare time, I bring life to neurotic,


fluffy, funny, and portly little animals


who jet around the world. My


current project is a full-length


comic called How to Have a


Breakdown and See 12 Countries in


3 Weeks!
