I plan on going with girlfriend, so if you see me be sure to say “hi!” 

Hey guys, long time no post! More comics ARE coming! 

But lately I’ve been focusing on my commercial art commissions, here are a few character design sheets and storyboards to give you an idea of what my job looks like. I need to work overtime because next week…

~MY GF AND I ARE GOING TO THE SAN DIEGO COMIC CON!!!~

I’ll be cosplaying too! So if you’re going, we could run into each other and take pictures! I’ll post pictures when costume is complete.

And if you’re dying for comics, you can read all of mine from the very beginning here: (kn-comics.com)

My new business cards just came in the mail, they turned out beautifully! 

(Now to find clients to give them to.)

Today’s comic progress! Can you guess the punchline? 

I need to run errands, but I plan on finishing this by tonight! 

Comic updates only on Monday!

Hey guys, I’ve been really busy with commercial design and illustration jobs. I’m actually in the process of making sure I’m a legit taxable entity! 

So until I get my business in order, I need to dedicate some time towards it. I know I said I would make Fri/Mon but for now it will only be Monday. 

Thanks for your patience :)

Lately I’ve been having trouble making comics, and that’s because I’ve been working on more commercial graphic work! 

These are some examples of email banner graphics I make for a local marketing firm. They handle all sorts of clients including the San Diego Symphony so I get to do all sorts of fun varied projects. 

I haven’t forgotten my update schedule… But I need to graphically hustle! 

PS: If you want to keep up to date with my graphic work, I have a behance page!

It’s been a crazy few weeks for me, but I finally found myself some free time. I’ve decided to work on my contest winners. Here is the progress! 

I want to finish up the inked portrait (still need photoshop touchups) and the full color of Shinobu. I’ll also be updating my portfolios soon with animated storyboard commissions, and other illustration projects I recently finished up! 

Comic ideas have been also hard to find between commissions, but hopefully I’ll have time to think of something by this Monday.

Thanks for your patience :)

Dear Beloved Readers,

Recently I’ve reached 1,000 followers on tumblr and I have to say…

It’s hard work making comics. More than 100 comics later I don’t think it’s gotten any easier either. 

But when I started I don’t think I knew how much of an emotional outlet comics would provide for me. They became a lighting rod of emotions for all my victories, defeats, and existential meltdowns. I can imagine without these I would be a much more repressed and unexpressive person. I’ve become aware of how far this journey has taken me, and how much farther I want to go. No matter how busy I was, I always found the time to tell these stories.

Now my post graduation life has been crazy. I’ve been picking up commissions, drafting architecture, requests, helping with family restaurant… all while trying to maintain my comics. It’s only gotten more difficult to produce regular work. But know at this point, comics have effected the way I perceive myself and experience the world around me. It is unlikely I will stop making comics anytime soon.

I try to put so much effort into my work, so I’m grateful you take the time to read what I make. Rest assured, more is on the way. 

Thank you,
-Khanh Nguyen

No comic today!

I was hired for a big illustration contract over the weekend, so I need to concentrate on that for a while. Don’t worry, I’ll update with more comics as soon as I can!
