It's Tdot's fault, really.
Several failed attempts to spell "Pimpette" while in keenchat resulted in "pumbum" (don't ask me how).
We thought it was so hilarious that I ended up doodling a character to fit the name.
Time went by and I couldn't keep myself from developing him - like the Buttercats
, I had inadvertently stumbled upon something so simple and (to me) adorable that I couldn't leave it alone.
Other characters appeared, and with them, a sort of plot emerged.
giving advice and providing feedback, Pumbum grew from a plushie-like blue concept into a full-blown character (he also gave Shaboomo the Belligerent his name).
Whenever I'm stuck on Pumbum's thought bubbles, or even need help with story ideas, I poke at Keon with a sharp stick until he gives me what I want.
Yes, it does update very sporadically - I've gone and gotten myself entangled in god knows how many comics and projects, and they're all equally time-consuming in their own ways.
No worries though; Pumbum is here to stay.
