in my mad rush to get page 141 up the other day i forgot to wish everyone a happy new year and a welcome back! so inconsiderate… so, yeah, what i just said :)
our old boney friend is enjoying emotionally destroying our heroine! i tried, without morphing the his skull too much, to evoke the image of a grin in his ugly mug in panel four. it’s almost an optical illusion, sometimes i see it and other times i don’t… very subtle i suppose.
as i mentioned in the butternutsquash blog i had a bit of an interesting years end. to reiterate -
“after a couple wonderful months in europe i had a bit of a strange ending to 2009. the day before christmas i was told my tenancy case, that i had won but a month previous after a 2 year ordeal, was now being appealed (joy) and then an hour later i received a call whereupon i was fired from a job. a first in my decade of freelancing as an artist. it was a blow to the ego, but at the end of the day i saw it as a blessing which will allow me more time to dedicate to the things i hold dear, like bns and kukuburi. as rob and i near 200 strips in the squash i would like to work towards a collection before the year is out – as well i have high hopes of taking the squash 3 times a week sometime this year. big dreams – hopefully i can make them all happen!”
and not to mentioned kukuburi volume 1, which i had hoped would be ready for spring, will more realistically be ready for a fall release. but not too worry, i’ll keep everyone updated of progress. to fill the springtime gap i’m working on a nice giant sized kukuburi print, and maybe a t-shirt. we’ll see.
- so, big plans for this year. i hope you all stick around and enjoy the ride! and as that old commercial used to go “tell all your friends, tell a whole bunch…”
