and Heycat Comics
A graduate from the University of Memphis’ College of Communication and Fine Arts in 1993, Larry Cathey has enjoyed a 25 year career in advertising and branding in both the private as well as corporate sectors. While working with Wright Medical Technology, Inc. and MicroPort Orthopedics, Larry’s medical illustrations were featured in dozens of national publications as well as in international orthopedic medical journals. Samples of his work can be found here.
In 2014, Larry embarked on his most ambitious endeavor to date, starting his own advertising agency, Heycatstudios in conjunction with also starting his own self-publishing venture, Heycat Comics. Heycat Comics flagship title; Mek Corps, is a story of a dystopian future bent to the will of a hardened global Warlord who touches the lives of the civilized world through the strings of his global corporate empire. With the death of one universe creating an near-infinite energy source that emerged into our own, his total control of the world nears completion, held at bay by a lone group of rebels who operate from the shadows. The series is scheduled for a total of 6 installments scheduled for completion by the fall of 2016. Mek Corps is self-distributed and can be found in 6 locations within the West Tennessee area, as well as Chicago and New York.
Larry works predominantly in a digital workflow while maintaining his hand in the more traditional artist realms of pencil, pen & ink, color pencil and watercolor. Sample of these can be found here.
