About Us

Hi Everyone!

John and Raena Merritt are the husband and wife team responsible for all things Tentacle Kitty. Since 2009 they have worked together on character design, product development, and the recently released webcomic series on Tapastic.

When it actually comes to putting pixel to paper, John Merritt creates whimsical and fantastic worlds. Awkwardly merged with Raena’s storytelling, and violently smashed with their combined “outside the box” humor, they have created a universe full of fun, adventure, and, most importantly, tentacles.

This dynamic duo has the best job in the world, making smiles!
