worlds are colliding…. well in mere moments anyway.

soooo, i hate to do this, and i tried to avoid it, but no can do. there will be no updates next week. the reasons are a few, but most notably are that’s it’s my birthday next week and i’m kinda treating myself right, especially with last years festivities being obliterated due to the issues with my landlord rearing their ugly ugly head . i will try and make things up to you the week following by updating with what normally would have been next week’s update and the followings all in said week.

once again my apologies, i tried to avoid such a thing happening by working ahead, but a client called me early this week with an emergency which really cut into my time that i would normally have spent working on next weeks updates.

as well for a little added bit of extra this week i thought i’d share the pencils for page 114. many people often ask what program i use to do kukuburi, well it all starts here with pencil on paper…

kukuburi 114, pencils

see you shortly :)

    Okay, so, long-established Kuku lover here.

    I am, however, also a professional English teacher. APOSTROPHE, sir. “Yesterday’s ideas.” Please.

    Humbly, and with great admiration,

    Oooo….. this just got way more interesting. I love learning more about the world they are in. But when will Nadia get her chapeau?

  14. Chameleon says:

    happy early birthday… I don’t mind a short wait… I’m just happy that Kukuburi is back *YAYYYYY*

  15. Chip says:

    Well, happy birthday early. No need to apologize. Enjoy next week. I’ll be hear in two weeks once again asking where my damned hardcover of Kuku is.

  16. Esn says:

    I really like this one.

    So it’s a battle of the new cynicism versus the old idealism, eh? Kukuburi finally has a theme, then, and I’m glad for it! It’s a good theme, very relevant to the world today. Don’t let me down now. :)

    Happy advance birthday.

  17. Ramón says:
