About Khalid Birdsong



My name is Khalid Birdsong and I draw the webcomics Fried Chicken and Sushi and The Honeybuns.
  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in Japan?  I'll give you a hint- fun, frustrating and funny!  My comic strips are a humorous look at what it's really like living as a foreigner in Japan based on my two years teaching English in Junior High Schools. 

The original Fried Chicken and Sushi updated every Tuesday and Thursday for over five years on www.friedchickenandsushi.com and finished at the end of May, 2015.  It has now morphed into a  strip about an African-American family living in Japan with a crazy, magical raccoon spirit named Tanuki.  It runs on my site and is also syndicated on GoComics.com



Drawing is a true passion so all of my comics will always be free to read online but it would be wonderful to have your patronage so that I can afford to spend more time focusing on them.  When you support, you can get access to my Patreon activity stream where you can see sketches for upcoming comics, character designs, get tips on making better comics, and how to improve your creative work life balance. 

You can also see early comics of my latest strip The Honeybuns, about a family of bunny rabbits living a fast paced life in Silicon Valley. The youngest son, Baxter, is a tech genius who wants to grow up too fast. His older sister, Isabel, tries to help him slow down and enjoy childhood before it's too late.
