per month


Chubby Kitten is a clumsy, anxious, lovable portly cat who bumbles his way through life in London. Together with his love Kitten Friend, and a myriad of chums, acquaintances and coworkers (all animals, of course!), he navigates awkward and comical situations, all in the search for a deeper understanding of self. 

With both digital artwork and hand drawn and inked comics, Chubby Kitten and Friends is fun, whimsical and touching, all while giving you something your eyes can feast on. 

Although Chubby Kitten and Friends routinely features one-off drawings, sketches and brief webcomics about this fat cat, its main focus is How to Have a Breakdown and Visit 12 Countries in 6 weeks, a long-form graphic novel about emotional collapse, travel, and renewal. Although the graphic novel is nearing completion, it is still in the process of creation, and this is your opportunity to join that journey as it winds its way towards a final destination. 

Chubby Kitten and Friends is drawn by Michael James Erdman, who lives in London with his partner Sam. In his day job, Michael is a Curator of Turkish and Turkic Collections at the British Library. On his time off, however, he lives in this fun fantasy world of grumpy and gregarious animals making the most out of all that London has to offer.
