I'm a hardcore hobbyist that is developing the graphic novel Cashmere Sky at There are many cats involved, influenced from an abundance of animation from the 20th century. Join me as I make myself appear as the crazy cat guy. :P

Gotta-go-fast by cashmeresky

It gives me great pleasure to announce a massive performance boost to the Cashmere Sky website. Normally, I'd just leave it at that, but thought I'd indulge on my little adventure into solving this nightmarish headache. I originally purchased an upgraded VPS (Virtual Private Server) to handle site traffic and speed, but noticed there was still some serious performance issues. Considering I'm a front-end web developer as my day job, this was troubling.

For months, I had been getting feedback of poor performance. As some may know, poor site performance can equal poor site traffic. Who wants to browse with painfully slow loading times? I had exhausted every single tactic I knew to boost performance including massive caching optimization, database optimizing, disabling any plugins that didn't need used, minimizing CSS and JS, squashing picture sizes, embed loads, etc. I finally contacted my web host to find out what the deal was.

It turns out, when I upgraded my VPS, my server was on the West Coast of the US, and my database was on the East Coast. Imagine handing a guy a letter to deliver to someone, but they lived across the country. This is why the site was slow. My host kindly merged the two together, so now it was like delivering the letter to the office below in the same building. The performance is astoundingly better.

I hope this solves everyone's headache browsing the site. It should be much better now. Thank you for all your patience, and thank you for supporting this project. :D

Hello there!

I remember you and your work from You used to post there asking for critique and then proceeded to engage in big wall-of-text discussions - fun times! :D

Even though I am not the biggest fan of your work I gotta say that you improved your faces and facial expressions a lot! They look very natural and each expression reads perfectly, it makes your pieces look way more appealing than they used to be. It's nice to see such an improvement.
cashmeresky Featured By Owner May 14, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well thank you! It's nice to know that others are seeing improvement. :D

by adding that hunter s. thompson quote are you trying to say that you are a GOD PROTOTYPE?! more like a TURD PROTOTYPE. GET IT??? GET IT???

cashmeresky Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The quote further says how I was never considered for mass production.

I'm going to slap you, and you're going to LOVE IT.

Hi there! Years ago I recall watching some of your YouTube videos (completely unrelated to art) and finding them hilarious. Imagine my surprise when a friend linked me to them today, and I found your gallery here! I really enjoy your art style and look forward to watching you here on DA! :)
cashmeresky Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well thank you good sir! Have a look around. Hopefully there's a lot to see! :D

Cats, landscapes, futuristic trains, and references to famous scientists all over the place.  How could anyone not want to watch you? :-)
