…and now we pause.
perhaps the worst things i could do with dedicated readers waiting for the coming climax along with all the new readers filtering in from PvP, but fate has played her hand. i had hoped to build a buffer to continue the story in my absence, but unfortunately my workload did not allow this to happen.
that said kukuburi will return december 1st 2009, whereupon we will enter the final arc and conclusion of chapter one.
now whilst the story is on pause i will still be updating, for which i would like to open up the stage to you, the audience. If you are so inclined, whether you be 10 or 60, i would love for you to share your art, stories or inspirations related to kukuburi. it could be a simple pinup of the tillywump or a creature of your own design, a short story starring lenny or a telling tale of ‘la brigade du chapeau, a finger painting of him or perhaps a rendo sock puppet… whatever it might be. my only asking is that nadia, mr. bojangles and “him” are, for stories, off limits. i will try and post all that comes my way… but please be patient :)
now where will i be during this absence? glad you asked. i will be embarking on a comics festival tour of Europe and the UK beginning in Łódź Poland and ending in Leeds England. this will be an adventure the likes of which i have never experienced before. so if you happen to be in Łódź, Frankfurt, Amadora, Lille, Paris, Andenne, Milan, Dublin, London or Leeds for any of their respective festivals this fall good chances are that you will see me there. since the trip is rather long i will be traveling light and will be unable to carry much swag, though i will try and have kukuburi prints and stickers as well as butternutsquash comics on hand and will obviously be doing sketches.
the details of the tour are listed on my travel-blog, Cranial Percolations, which i will be using as a journal of sorts, posting my experiences, sketches and what-not. the tour will also be listed in the TX Forums, as i will eventually be traveling with karl kerschl (of the abominable charles christopher) and cameron stewart (of sin titulo).
i look forward to meeting one and all on this adventure, in the cities listed above and some others i might manage to meander to or surfable couches that might come a calling.
the stage is yours dear friends… let’s have some fun :)
