…counting down the days.

what a month.

my brief stint in spain was amazing. i attended the XV Jornadas de Comics in aviles, where i met some fantastic people – fans, peers, et all. i can’t wait to return. while there i also attended the first ever family reunion on my father’s side. the event was great on so many levels – meeting family i have not met previous to this, as well as reconnecting with many i had not seen in years.

upon returning from spain i was pulled into a flurry of work that had to be compressed into a week, before i quickly took off to attend the NYCC. a great show that i return to yearly, though this was my first time attending as a guest and hosting my own table in artist’s alley. something i’m sure to do again next year. thank you all who made it out to the convention, swung by and said hello.

so  that was a week ago.

once again, upon my return home i had to jump into some contracted work that was waiting for me. by the time the weekend rolled around i had completed all contracts and finally got to take a break. which was quite QUITE nice as i feel like i’ve been going full tilt for about 6 weeks.

over the weekend i was able to finally get some sketching in. i laid out 24 pages of kukuburi and sixteen of butternutsquash. in the weeks to come i will take what i have started to finishes – how long this will take i am unsure, as i do have work obligations, however i am hoping to have all said and done within 3 weeks at most. i’m quite happy with what i have planned for both and VERY MUCH look forward to returning – i’ve missed it so much.

as the moment comes closer i will post a relaunch date for both comics.

thank you all for your patience…

– ramón.

ps/ and yes, we have a nun in the family 🙂

pss/ a selection of sketches i did in aviles can be perused at ramonperez.com and as for photos, if you are so inclined, there are some on my facebook.

    wow,,, what a whirlwind! Sounds great. I can imagine that such times can only cleanse and refresh one’s artistic drives.
    Good luck with all! Can’t wait for the return of BNS and Kuku…!

    I started to type “wow, what a whirlwind!” when i noticed usivius’ comment above 🙂

    So i’ll just say it’s great to see activity at the squash, and i’m looking forward to your return.

    Welcome back guys!
