ABOUT OUR GUEST JUDGES
Natasha Allegri is a writer, storyboard revisionist and artist, and comic book artist. While she originally wanted to just make comic books, she is most well known for her work first as a storyboard artist, and later, as a storyboard revisionist for Cartoon Network's Adventure Time.
While in college at the University of Arizona in Tuscon, her friend, and creator of Adventure Time, Pendleton Ward, contacted her about working on Adventure Time and she has worked on the show since. While working on the show, Allegri began drawing gender – swapped versions of the show’s characters, including Fionna and Cake as her gender-swapped versions of Finn and Jake, and eventually these characters were featured in full episodes of Adventure Time. As of August 6, 2013, she also has written and illustrated Fionna and Cake comics for BOOM! Studios.
One of Allegri's most recent endeavors has been the creation and production of her own animated work, Bee and PuppyCat on Frederator Studios' Youtube channel, Cartoon Hangover. The project currently consists of one episode. The episode introduces viewers to Bee, a young woman who has just found herself unemployed, and PuppyCat, a small and mysterious creature resembling both a puppy and a cat. Things soon take all sorts of strange twists as they are transported to Fishbowl Space where their adventures begin.
PuppyCat is a puppy. Maybe a cat? Voiced by the Vocaloid Oliver.
ABOUT THE KICKSTARTER
"Bee and PuppyCat" is a very popular original cartoon created by Natasha Allegri. In it, Bee, an out-of-work twenty-something, has a life-changing collision with a mysterious creature she names PuppyCat ("A cat?... or maybe a dog?"). Between space and time, Bee and PuppyCat take on an intergalactic babysitting gig to pay another month’s rent. Now, you can help Bee write a happy ending for PuppyCat’s tale of betrayal, intrigue, and magical sparkle transformations. Help the creators reach their minimum goal ($600,000) to produce six, brand new, six-minute Bee and PuppyCat cartoons - find out even more, including all the levels at which you can back the project, at the Kickstarter page!

Q: It’s been more than 2 business days and I don't see my design on the site. What’s going on with my design?
A: We review every submission we get before they are made live for viewing and rating. We sometimes reject designs for obvious reasons. If you’ve done any of the following don’t even bother asking why your design was rejected.
- Your design has inappropriate materials.
- Your design uses other copy righted material. This means you are using other people’s intellectual property in your design you do not have the right to. NO MASH UPS!!!
- It’s not a design. A direct photograph or a scribble you just drew on a piece of paper is not considered a shirt design.
