where i’m at…
first off, i hope you all had a wonderful holiday and spectacular new year’s eve and that 2009 is blessing you with good health and fortune!
that said, i can’t believe its been almost two months since my last big post!
time flies, ridiculously so.
let it be known though that i have not been resting on my laurels. i would say i have been busy but that is an understatement. i could rhyme off what i’ve been working on and it would tally in at about 8-10 projects simultaneously. rather i’ll mention the ones that have been the most fun: currently i am illustrating a 8 page star wars tale for dark horse comics for their free comic book day offering, i am also wrapping up my tenure on inking marvel’s nyx with the series’ last issue and last but not least i am in the middle of the six issue resistance miniseries for wildstorm comics based on the ps3 video game! the remainder of my schedule was filled with a bit more dry corporate fare, though some were quite fun. of which i will post to my art blog, cranial percolations when i can.
everything is coming to a head within the next three weeks. the last thing of which is, i hope, a four page kukuburi story simply titled ‘prelude‘ for the tcaf free comic book day collection… keep your fingers crossed on that one… as it all comes down to timing and the kindness of people!
literally the day after everything wraps up i will be flying down to new york to partake in the ny comic con. unfortunately i will not have a table – as i have no swag – so i’ll just be wandering around meeting with people. so if you see this canuck wandering the aisles feel free to say hello!
upon returning from ny i will have a couple projects waiting for me. debt will, for the most part, be paid off and i can start focussing on kukuburi again. my plan is to take the time in february to begin pencilling and focussing on the finale of chapter one, which works out to be probably about 30-50 more pages… depending on how things go. after said month comes to a close i will use the donations that people have poured forth and dedicate them to taking time off in early march to work kukuburi magic.
so if things go well, i hope to relaunch kukuburi sometime around the end of february, begining of march. an exact date will come… i just wanted to keep you posted with all that has been preoccupying my time.
as well, later this spring at tcaf (toronto comic arts festival) i hope to unveil some swag, prints and possibly a rough cut of kukuburi volume one.
more words to come…
thank you all for your support and patience!
