Heya Everybody.
I'll start out with the TL;DR version for convenience's sake:
Temporarily, KB will be updating once a week (on wednesday)

Now for the long version:

As some of you know, this is a very transitional period in my life. I'm out of college and in the middle of trying to figure out how to best support myself monetarily while keeping a maximum amount of time for the things I love to do.

At the moment, that means I've taken on several coloring jobs. Coloring has always been my favorite part of the process, and the fact that people like my stuff enough to pay me to do it to THEIR art brings me some serious joy.
But it also means I have about five things going on right now, which makes it difficult to devote two days a week to drawing my comic.

I want to stress that this is not the beginning of some downward spiral for KB where I eventually abandon it. I know updates have been all over the place time-wise, and it might seem to the layperson that I don't care. KB is still very close to my heart, and I can't wait to show you guys some of the events that are coming up in the story. But it's a very small chunk of my income right now, so at this point I need to prioritize where the money is.
As soon as I get caught up on all this work, KB will resume its normal schedule. At this latest, that will be early March, after Emerald City Comiccon (which I'm excited to exhibit at once again!)

Thank you so much for sticking with the comic despite these ups and downs, and I hope you continue to enjoy it! Nothing brings me more creative satisfaction than people caring about this world I've created. And I'll see you with a new page tomorrow!

Meanwhile, you can always check out my art twice a week on the Trenches, as well as my coloring on Scott's new comic Table Titans.

Heya guys! Just posting real quick to wish everyone a Merry 25th of December!
KB won't be updating today, but it will return on Thursday for more shenanigans! Meanwhile I'm getting some serious family times up in the hizouse. Also getting some other work done. But mostly family!

Thanks so much to everyone for supporting KB throughout the year and being the best readers ever! The comic's always a joy to draw and share, and I can't wait for you to see some of the stuff I have planned for next year! : )

As many of your have observed, it seems the site has hit some kind of bandwidth limit and has been running like molasses. I think this is probably because of a few links I've gotten lately (namely from Jerry of Penny Arcade! Which I'm very grateful for), so hopefully as traffic continues to level off things will return to normal.
If the problem persists by tomorrow, I'll start taking more drastic measures.

Sorry about the trouble in the meantime, and thanks to everyone sitting through the loads to discuss very important shipping matters!

Heya Guys,
As I mentioned in the post under today's comics, KB will be going on a short hiatus as I leave to spend a week in Chicago (graduation trip with my family!)

I hate to take any time off, but I simply haven't had time to work ahead! That being said, the week after this I may be updating with random bonus content as I finally DO work ahead in order to have a buffer for once. I think with the Trenches and other things going on, it's become imperative that I finally get some pages in the can so I'm not always up at ridiculous hours of the night and updating on the same.

The Trenches will still be updating while I am gone, so don't forget to check there Tuesday and Thursday!

Also, if I do take that time in a week for bonus content: What would you like to see? Any particular questions you've been interested in having answered in comics form, or what-if scenarios you've been curious about? If I'm gonna be sketching up some random filler like a doof, we might as well make it intriguing!

Huge apologies for the delay in updates, but I hope to come back swinging with a chapter that I'm very excited to draw >:)

If you follow my Tweeters, you might have already heard about some exciting news!

From now on I'll be drawing another Tuesday/Thursday comic, The Trenches! If you aren't already familiar with ze Traunches, it's a comic written by the Penny Arcade guys and my comics dad Scott Kurtz! It's about a group of game testers and the terrifying enterprise that game testing actually is.
Scott's been the artist for the Trenches since it started, but with a lot of projects coming up he wanted someone qualified to take over art duties on this one. We'll see if I turn out to be that person! Suffice to say I'm super excited for the opportunity to work with all these guys on a project like this.

This won't affect KB's update schedule in the future, as I plan to work well ahead on the Trenches. But for this week, things are just starting and I'm trying to learn a whole new style, so please bear with me! This week's second KB update will go up tomorrow, and then we'll return to our regular wonky schedule.

In any case, I can't express how much I look forward to this whole enterprise! If you told me a few years ago that I'd be drawing a comic with Scott, Mike, and Jerry, I would slap you and then laugh and cry until I exploded. Life is pretty fuckin' weird and awesome sometimes.

Heya guys! My last con of the year is here this weekend!
If you live around the Baltimore area, I'll be at Baltimore Comic-Con!
I'll be boothing with Brad Guigar at the Evil Inc booth, so you can find me here!:

Please stop by and say hi to us! : )

Heya Guys!
First off, because I've got these two cons in a row, and I've decided to stay sane for once, KB will be updating once a week this and next week, on Wednesday. Thankfully, that's the end of con season for me this year! So I'll have far more time to focus on comic and coloring work afterwards : )
But! On to the info for congoers!

Animefest is this weekend! You can find me in the Artist Alley at table E-10, which is here:

This'll be my first Animefest, but I had a great time at A-kon and I'm super excited for another Dallas convention!

Baltimore Comic-Con, meanwhile, is the weekend after this! I'll be exhibiting at the Evil Inc booth, which constant gentleman Brad Guigar kindly allowed me to split with him! It'll be my first time in the proper Exhibitor area, discounting that time I informally chilled at ECCC with Scott, so I'm pretty excited for it! But I don't happen to have the booth number yet, so I'll be updating with that later.

Once these cons are over I'll be able to do a lot of stuff I've been putting off, like finally putting the store back up with volume 2 and a couple other products! Thanks a ton for hanging in there everybody, and I look forward to meeting some more readers over the next couple weeks!

Hey guys! First off, this week's second page is edit gonna be pushed back to tuesday next week. There's just too much going on! But I'll have it done nice and early.

So anyone on twitter or whatnot will know that I've been coloring my friend Scott Kurtz's PVP since Friday It's been a really awesome time, and I've never had more positive feedback from anything I've done.
One effect is that I've gotten a few more coloring opportunities on some other projects, along with the ones I've been working on on the side already like the S101 Redraws.

I love coloring, and I think it's my most solid skill of all things comic and art-related. With myself being out of school now, it's also going to be increasingly important that I find paying gigs and make a living for myself so I can keep doing what I love.

One such gig is an upcoming comic that Scott will be writing and I'll be drawing for Shiftylook, which I'll be sure to post about here when it goes up!

So what does all of this mean for KB? For now, hopefully not a lot! If things get too crazy, I may be forced to reduce my update schedule or go on a short hiatus so I can come back guns blazing. But for now, I think I can still update twice a week. The days may just continue to be a bit off! If at any point I need to reduce my schedule, I'll be sure to tell you.

I'm sorry for the unpredictability of update times, and thank you so much for sticking around and dealing with my shenanigans. KB is still the baby of my heart, and I have so much more to show you guys of this world! If you ever want to know exactly when updates are happening without checking the site, you can always follow my Twitter, tumblr, or facebook for updates any time a strip goes up.

I'll be at L07! I'll have volumes 1 and 2 there of course, as well as all my other stuff from SDCC! Come see me! I'll give ya a kiss!
(I won't actually kiss you)

Hey Guys!
For those who'll be attending SDCC, you can find me in the small press area! I'll be splitting a booth with Magnolia Porter of Monster Pulse, where we will be having awesome webcomic galparties. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT!
So here's where to find us:

First you gotta find the small press area, which is purple. So when you're walking along and everything turns purple, you're in the correct zone!

Magnolia and I are at booth M-5! Just look for our banners or my green tablecloth, and you should find us somewhere in the giant miasma of humanity that apparently comprises this con!

I'll have books of course, as well as posters and buttons and commissions! So stop by if you'd like to buy something, or just if you'd like to say hi and maybe see if we're still alive!

This is my first time at SDCC in any capacity, so I'm pretty excited and terrified! Seeya guys there!

Heya guys! Sorry the site was down from late friday through the middle of saturday. It turns out one of my plugins was causing memory issues and DH blocked my site. However, it's all fixed now thanks to the consummate gentleman Frumph.
He also switched my comicpress system over to comic easel, his newer comic system magical thing. So things look a bit different now! I've gotta tweak it a bit, but what's important is that everything is working now and business can continue as usual :) Well, maybe a bit better than usual!

Sorry again for the site problems! Seeya on Tuesday (for sure this time ;P good to healthy again) for the next page!

Heya guys! I just got back from A-Kon yesterday! Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by and said hi! It was a great time and a lot of fun. I'll definitely try to grab a table again next year!
I posted some photos up on tumblr of both my booth and some of the commissions I did if you're interested.

Unfortunately I got pretty sick at the con, which has made drawing today's KB quite a task! But there will still be a KB on Wednesday and one more properly timed for Thursday. Two KBs a week is still a thing now. Sorry to start it off on such a bad foot but my head is so stuffy right now! Please bear with meeeee

EDIT: Converted to Blog post

The image's got most of the relevant info for ya! If you don't follow my tumblr and would like to see the comics I'm more proud of from my final SEQA class, you can read them here and here! (Sadness and Creepiness warnings on those, respectively!)

I gotta hurry and finish preparation and packing for my trip to Dallas, but I will see you on Tuesday! Life's going to get pretty interesting for the next few months as I transition from school kid to adult-type person, but there will definitely be time for more Ks and Bs! Please join me!

Heya guys! Just wanted to confirm that I just got back from shipping the last of the AE Vol 2s and bundles! I'll put 'em up for regular sale later, but for now, here's some of my favorite artist editions :3

Some of 'em were specific requests, like "Ben with Winston" and "Vigilante Reed"
Thanks once more to everyone who ordered one! It was great to draw in all of these : )
Posted April 23, 2012 at 05:41 pm

Heya guys! Update on the Volume 2 Situation.
My books all came in last last week from Createspace, and after a few trips to the Post office I've now mailed out all non-artist edition preorders (including combos).
I've also mailed several of the earlier AE orders, and will be working as hard as possible to get the rest out by the end of the week. Thanks so much to everyone who preordered for your support and patience! Once all of these are taken care of, Volume 2 will be added to the store for regular sales.

Seeya on Wednesday for a page that's currently looking pretty awesome if I may say so!
Page 1 2 3 4 5 6 ... 7
