I began drawing Kip and K'nor in about 2005, while traveling through Central America with some Dutch companions that I had met in Guatemala. Kip (chicken in Dutch), and K'nor (the Dutch equivalent of oink), became my journal companions long after my Dutch friends returned to Holland and eventually became the current artwork on the Backpacker Blend coffee bag produced by the Kalamazoo Coffee Company.
In the story Kip & K'nor meet the pot bellied penguin, the two friends start the story off stuck on a home made raft in a dried out lake bed. They are searching for the pot bellied penguin,who is rumored to know the way to an endless fountain of water at the top of a far off mountain (the tip top tap at the top of the Tup Tim Thai).
