Kai figures out how to deal with the loss of a second pet within a year
We are right in the middle of our relocation and my time right now has gone to getting new residence set up, registering Kai for kindergarten, and many of the logistical hurdles involved in moving. Cartoons may take a back seat for the next two weeks, as Trey moves to the area ahead of me during the week for work. I have never had to do everything by myself before and hope I don’t burn the house down or forget to feed Sasha, etc. I’m sure that the dishes will pile up and this will make for great cartoons once we settle. Until then, know that my next two weeks handling things alone here will be great material for BoogNugget!
As always, happy trails!
BoogNugget cartoons will be taking a two week break from generating new cartoons, to resume Jan 27th. Consider this an homage to a great lady, my grandmother, Kai and Tyler’s great grandma. Today she passed with what I consider to be a good amount of dignity after a healthy fight. She will be missed. I only wish that she could have seen more of her great grandchildren than she was able to. Living far away has its disadvantages sometimes. Anyways, I digress. The bottom line here is that we will miss you Grandma; I know I will most certainly miss making you laugh each week with BoogNugget. I will try to continue to make you laugh, if it is only in my imagination going forward.
Unfortunately, there will be no cartoon post for today. I have been fighting with what I hope is temporary blindness in my left eye and it is affecting all things art . By next week, it will either have gone away or I will have figured out how to deal with it. Chin up folks!
First, the book:
Since I have been hounded (just kidding, I love it!) about getting a BoogNugget book out, I have been hard at work on this. I have decided that the first book that needs to come out shall be none other than a compilation of the first three years of BoogNugget Cartoons. My style has dramatically changed and I am finally at peace with the look and feel of the drawing. I think this book will cover that metamorphosis. I have the first 10 pages so far. Fingers crossed that I’ll get that done by year’s end…
Concurrently, I have been putting all the material that I have not published online into what I am considering Book #2. This one even has a name (“The World is Full of Snot”) and I make myself laugh at some of the things I have planned for it. The vast majority of which has never been seen before. Exciting indeed. Ah, if only I did BoogNugget on a full time basis…sigh!
The other announcement is about changes to this website. I intend to only keep the last year’s worth of content up and online. The major reasons for this are: 1) I can more easily keep things consistent; 2) My style has changed so much that I really only want to show my most recent style; 3) things are easier to keep on top of in the event of hackers affecting my site; and 4) well, hey–I would like to put things into books and make them available that way, can you blame me?
As always, ping me with any thoughts or questions, etc. And happy gravy folks!
