By “below” I mean that blog section that the main page has. I put information there sometimes!
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!
Now that October is upon us, I have about half a month left to finish up all my work and prepare for my move to Japan to begin my career as an English ALT.
This includes completion of my African Folktale anthology comic, as well as general packing, training, and other random work.
Meanwhile, the next four or so KB pages are in a group that I would feel horrible going on my moving hiatus in the middle of. You’ll understand when you see ‘em.
This week I’m going to focus on getting my other work done, hopefully finishing my anthology comic and training. Therefore, there will be no KBs.
If I can get that done, I want to use my remaining time to kick out as many pages as possible to get to that next plot point before I go.
Either way, there’s going to be some downtime while I move, train, and settle in in Japan. I’m not sure how long that hiatus will last, as things are going to be pretty crazy for a while. But whenever I have time, you know I’ll be back on that Kiwi-horse. KB is pretty darn important to me, and I have no intention of letting it lay fallow for longer than necessary.
If you want to know what’s up with the comic at any point, there’s several ways to keep updated:
My Twitter Is a good place to see whatever I’m doing and thinking from day to day, as well as knowing whenever I update KB.
My Tumblr Links to any KB updates, and also contains random sketches and art I do as warmups or in my downtime.
Meanwhile, the RSS or the KB Facebook Page are great ways to just know when the comic updates.
Thank you so much to everyone for your patience and support, and for reading my silly comic on the internet. Steffi and the gang definitely have a few more adventures to go before all is said and done.
