Dreaded Hiatus
Posted August 6, 2018 at 07:54 pm
Heya guys,
I'm really sorry to do this, but I'm afraid I'm putting KB on hiatus for the next month, possibly two.
I've got a big coloring job going on (unfortunately NDA stuff), and while I've been trying to balance it with my KB and SD work, I obviously... haven't been doing great, as you might have noticed from the ridiculous times pages have been going up.

But if you're a long time reader, you'll know that KB's gone on hiatus a small number of times, but it always comes back! We're getting into the final stretch, and giving this comic a proper conclusion is incredibly important to me. So don't worry, we'll be back as soon as I can! In the meantime, you can always check out my twitter or the SD discord for relevant updates!

I'm really sorry again for the delay, and thank you all so much for sticking with this comic through thick and thin! It's been almost a decade since it started!!! Utter madness.

Heya guys, so as you might have noticed, Friday KB updates have been either horribly timed or not happening.

I really thought I could manage another page per week, but it's been a bit of a tipping point that meant I only had one day of 'weekend' left for getting everything done that isn't my normal comic work. Suffice to say it's been rough on my general mental health and well being.

So as much as I hate to do it so soon, I'm officially moving KB back down to just updating on Monday. I'll try to get some Friday updates in when I can, but I don't want to promise anything more than I can deliver.

I've always struggled with finding that balance between what I feel I should be producing and what I can actually produce while maintaining quality of life. I know several webcartoonists have gone through the same thing. Gigi D.G. of Cucumber Quest has said some really affirming things lately about how important it is to look out for yourself rather than worshipping the concept of 'no missed pages ever'. Obviously, like all things, that mindset can go too far in either direction. But I'm dedicating October to really focusing on figuring some of this stuff out, and nailing down what the proper balance is to keep me both productive and Not Completely Insane.

I really appreciate everyone's patience and understanding, as always! KB's readers, as well as the rest of my followers, have always been incredibly kind to me. I always expect to get some pushback from people who don't understand what I'm struggling with, but I almost never do! It's incredibly uplifting. I love you guys, and I'll do my best to do right by you.
