|Before you read on,
here's the answer to the #1 most frequently asked question - When do
Currently, the major updates happen once to twice a year, which isn't too bad considering CDD is now over 10 yrs, old. This schedule can vary, however, depending on how many contributions we get and how much time I have to recruit or gather material. If you are interested in submitting creative material to Unofficial CDD, check HERE.
If you just can't get enough of CDD art or want to be involved with CDD fandom, please consider joining the catsdontdance_II yahoogroup. Group members get first notice of site updates, plus it's a great way to help out with the projects we do for the Unofficial CDD Fan-site. Okay, back to the program...
SITE NAVIGATION TIP: clinking the left side menus changes the HEADER frame where there's more submenus.
Time for an update! There's been some changes here and there which I hope will make your visit to Unofficial CDD more pleasant. These changes are mostly code related, and tested well in the top 3 browsers, but if there's any problems please let me know at: email@example.com On to what's new...
Fan Art: Welcome to a lot of new artists from the halls of Deviant Art. If you like what you see, please visit their galleries, and see what else they draw besides singing and dancing animals. To make room for the newcomers, I've pared down the fan art page, but no worries, the art isn't gone..just moved to the Holiday and Fan Art Archives. <:)
Fan Fiction: Three new authors this time around, thanks Daisy E, Alycat and Reggie. A welcome back to Eric whose tale of two kitties concludes and to Nothere89 who has another short and sweet offering too.
Fun Stuff: In the printable downloads area, there's a new pumpkin stencil of Tillie. Just in time for next year.. <:)
Media: In the CDD promotional items list, there's 3 pics of CDD promotional pieces that are quite interesting... I'd also like to pass along a tidbit a CDD shared with me for the CDD International sectin. On the Japanese CDD video cover the title is written in katakana - an alphabet to make the phonetic of the title 'Kyattsu-Donto-Dansu'. Finally, I stumbled upon a video of Randy Newman performing 'Laugh and be Happy' in which he also has a few words about CDD as well.
Comics: I added a one pager I did during Obamas election night, 'Time Would Tell'.
Cat Chat: Last, but certainly not least, a Cat Chat with CDD cleanup artist, Todd Jacobsen! A lot of interesting CDD tidbits and Todds excellent examples of the 'art' of cleanup. :)
That's it for now, but I hope to have a small update in December too. *crosses fingers*
Apologies for the very long hiatus, but here's what's been
Fan Art: Welcome to new artists Osprey Hawk, Selina Patience, Kateartist and to returning artists PandaJenn, and Bloodyd-Chan. Nice work guys. :)
Fan Fiction: Three new authors this time around, thanks Eric, Ssellur, and Nothere89.
Fan Fun: There's a new Sawyer Wallpaper available, inspired by real life icon, Madonna.
Production Art: More model sheets of supporting animal cast, plus 3 for Sawyer and one for Tillie. There's also some nice new art iin the Sketch & Cleanups section featuring Darla, Max and misc. human characters too. I recently got a whole new set of 'Kitty Letters' which has all sorts of 'creative' art from the CDD crew which I'm happy to be share.
Cat Chat: The interview with Annie Award nominated supervising animator of Darla & Max, Frans Vischer is here! A very nice read about a very nice fellow.
In closing, thanks for your patience and I'll try to get
this show on the road again.
CDD's 10th anniversary year!
A VERY long time coming ( like the 10 yr. anniversary of
CDD) , but here's what's been updated.

whole new crop of DA artists - Bryon Dunbar, Flintheart, and bluekoinu.
New artist Zootsuit and returning artists Jenn Morton, Bloodyd-chan and
Chris also help make this a hefty fan art update -12

NEWS FLASH! The
CDD Catalog project is also REOPENED FOR SUBMISSIONS TIL DEC 2007.

Things to come - more CDD fan projects like the year -long CDD Catalog Project, an interview with CDD animator Frans Vischer and hopefully a new fan comic series.
A long time coming, but here's what's been updated.
4 new images
this time. Welcome to new artists J. Scharman and Spiritwolf ! J. Scharman
makes his debut with a Life magazine parody pic featuring Danny and
Sawyer. Spiritwolf has a unique mix of toons in her Happy BDay to CDD
producer David Kirschner. Mitch Beiro is back with a fun pic that is too
much of a good thing. ;) Lastly, I had a go at making a fictional DVD
cover about cats..
Enjoy the goodies and the rest of your summer. :)
Yippie! It's the first update of the year
and it's off to a good start. Here's what's on the plate:
Fan Art: There's 3
new images, -2 by returning artist Taral and one be yours truly. You
might notice that the new art page is a lot shorter this time, but fear
not! The 'missing' pictures have now been moved to the Fan
Art Archives and the Holiday
Art Archives. A few people finally got to move out of the one shots
misc. artist area and have their own listing in the archives now...nice
going, Brian Harris, Al Fishbeck, Will Gifford, and Chris & Indy. :)
Thus begins the 9th year for Unofficial Cats
Don't Dance. Next on the list will be a revisit to Sawyer's Plane Crazy
page which will be expanded on. To give some breathing room for this and
whatever else may come...
