Yo guys! First off, I’m so happy to be back to updating KB! For now, the comic will be updating once a week on Friday. However, we’re currently working up a buffer so it can move to twice a week as soon as possible.
I say We because, as you might have noticed from the art, I’ve brought on a collaborator for the first time! The new penciler of KB is Grace Liu, who you might know as Nargyle! Nargyle is seriously one of my favorite artists, period, and it’s a huge honor to have her working on KB with me. You are gonna flip when you see some of these upcoming pages! Her style is so animated and expressive, I can’t take it! >:0
Meanwhile, I’ll continue handling the writing, inks, and colors. So please don’t think this in any way means I’m losing interest in working on the comic! Penciling has honestly always been the hardest part for me, so bringing on a talented collaborator to handle that part lets me focus on the stuff I feel more comfortable and skilled at. Plus, it leaves more time for more pages!
Obviously the site could use some updating, and there’s also some other items of interest on their way. But for now, welcome back and Happy 5 Years of KB!
And as always, here’s some links to things you might be interested in following!:
Heya guys, just wanted to drop a line for anyone who checks the site manually as to what’s up.
First off, I can’t apologize enough for how sparse updates have been. I mentioned it on tumblr, but basically I’ve taken on a lot of work recently that’s been hard to turn down. Between those jobs and my dayjob teaching, there’s just been no time for anything else!
On the plus side, however, taking on work like this allows me to put money away for when I move back to America and return to doing art full time. So the more I save now, the safer my comics projects will be in the future!
That said, I’m still doing my best at the moment to find a balance that lets me take on extra jobs while still producing KB at a rate that isn’t The Worst. Trust me, there’s no one more frustrated by the lack of pages than myself!
In the meantime, in case you don’t follow my tumblr, here’s some random KB-related art I’ve drawn over the past month or so. Trust me, these kids are always on my mind!
