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!
YO! KB is back!
My current situation:
I’m all settled in here in Kurihara, Miyagi. Learning to live on my own in Japan is a bit tough, especially since I don’t get my first real paycheck ’til late December. But teaching is a ton of fun and I’m LIVIN’ THE DREAM.
I’m still figuring out the best way to balance KB with my teaching work here as well as various coloring jobs I have at the moment. So that said, KB’s current update schedule is ‘whenever I can finish a page’. This should be at least once a week, but I don’t want to make any premature promises.
But coming back to KB definitely feels great, and I can’t wait to crank some more pages out!
Meanwhile, if you don’t already follow my tumblr, I’ve started posting journal comics over there about my experiences over here! They’re drawn on archaic paper media in my free time between classes : )
Oh! And speaking of black and white comics by me, there’s currently a kickstarter running for Cautionary Fables and Fairy Tales: Africa Edition. I’m pretty darn proud of my piece for the anthology and there’s lots of other amazing artists in there! So please consider grabbing a copy through the KS if you like weird folktales from Africa >:3
Thank you to everyone who stuck around during the hiatus, and I can’t wait to shove all kinds of comics in your eyeholes!
