Friends, family, and fans of Kate!

It's been a long, long time since our last update. (Too darn long, that's what it's been!) We hope you're doing well.

Kate has been keeping us busy! Since late last year, Wayne and Jaime have been working hard to bring you her next big adventure.

And now, without further ado, we can FINALLY tell you what it is!

Wayne and Jaime have written and illustrated a picture book: Kate the Great and the Middle C Music Shop. It's available now on Amazon in two formats: as a Kindle Book and a paperback book.

You can read more about it on Kate's official website!

And you can read a preview on Amazon!

Paperback book:

Let's talk more soon, okay? Drop us a line and tell us how you've been! (And if you like our book, let us know that, too!) 😀

  • Listening to: Rain, birds. Kate tearing up the basement.
  • Reading: A little KtG!
  • Eating: Jelly beans


BartholomewGarcia's Profile Picture
Wayne B. and Jaime G.
Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
¡Hola! My name is Wayne, and I'm one-half of a cartoonist. (I'm the half that likes to write and eat a lot of doughnuts.) My friend and partner Jaime is the other half of this cartoon equation. (He's the one who likes to draw and watch a lot of Hitchcock movies.) Together, we're kinda like Voltron... without as many interlocking parts.

We made this deviantART page because we're thrilled to share our comic strip with you. It's called Kate the Great, and we really, really love it. We hope that you will, too.

(In the picture above? Yep, that's Kate! And her unicorn, Zuzu. And Louie [her dragon!] and Harlan [her gargoyle!] are running around in the background. And Tidas is her griffin. You'll see him soon. He's huge and super awesome.)

About the comic: Kate the Great is a comic strip about a spirited young girl with a big imagination. Kate’s friends (a gargoyle, a dragon, a unicorn, and a griffin) go with her on a series of adventures – some in the real world, others in worlds she probably invents – yet regardless of her environment and the challenges she faces, Kate is a natural-born leader and a very funny kid.

About the author: Wayne Bartholomew holds a master’s degree in English, which he earned from Youngstown State University. He is also a graduate of Kent State University. Through KSU’s School of Library and Information Science, he earned an M.L.I.S. Wayne has published political cartoons in YSU’s student newspaper, The Jambar.

About the illustrator: Jaime Garcia Corral is a comic book artist. His professional career includes work for companies like Disney (Disney Classics), Full Stop Media-Warner Bros. (Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo, Tom & Jerry) and DC Comics (Scooby-Doo), among others. His work has been published both in European countries, like the U.K., Germany, Sweden, Denmark, as well as in the U.S.A. He has also done illustration for animation.

It is very good to see you back here! So sorry to hear things did not go as planned. I had assumed this was the reason we were not seeing your new work here,,, but at least you can now be free to do as you like/can with the series! Good luck and God Bless.
