are we dead yet?
not a chance.
the readership of the squash may have dwindled to four over the past few years and our non existent update schedule but we still love you cats.
i’ve been away from the drafting table on a personal level for the past couple months for a variety of reasons. the main one of which is that i was buying a house. i decided to take that big first step into being an official adult (it’s a facade really) and become a homeowner, especially after all my renting woes of the past few years. it took an inordinate amount of time, and a lot of hunting, but i found what for me is the perfect place. i made the move on july first and have been slowly unpacking and settling in over the past few weeks. the place feels great – like i’ve lived there for years – despite still having much of my stuff still in boxes. though i hope to rectify this in the weeks to come.
as i mentioned above the squash ain’t dead. yet. rob and i have sat down and wrapped up the story we had going and now i just have to draw it. once things wrap though, i’m not sure where they’ll go.
we might end it and call it a day.
we might return in more “season” like instalments – i mean it works for tv, why not for us?
the reality of the situation is i love telling stories, whether it be the squash, kukuburi, or the other dozen tales in my head waiting to get out. but i’ve had to admit to myself that i can’t really tackle more than one at a time. so, once bns wraps – i will proceed to wrap kukuburi – after which i might return to bns or focus on another project. it’s a quality versus quantity idealism that i’m trying to adhere to. i figure a concentrated dose of bns a year is better than no dose at all…
hope y’all can respect that.
that said, when will the story end? gimme the remainder of the summer to get unpacked, settle in, and do some doodling, and i promise you you’ll hear the end of our ridiculous tale come september. i will post a return date for all the bns army troops out there still listening…
