Some years back...


Landscape with stars


Monday is usually better than tuesday and yesterday was good. If I could keep up the 5 panel pace, I would be soon done. Maybe in ten days maybe. Splitting the issue feels like a good decision now. There's a lot of action anyways and a change of tempo does a lot good for the storyline. I now try to tell it as straight as I'm able. There's going to be a lot weirdness again later on.

A new collage...

...wasn't exactly what I needed...

What happened

Issue 21 started to turn really complex and LONG so I divided it into 2 issues. You know, I can do these things if I want to.

the first proofs of the poster in issue 20. Crazy! Should I do another one? Why the heck not!

Fall of the URO's

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

So, it was a good day panel-wise. Six of them finished. Issue 21 is moving along. Now there's 5 pages finished, more or less. Once more a totally silly issue with several twists and turns you could hardly have anticipated. The URO-storyline continues with the exploits of Ohto Äijönpoika.

How many of you have seen this? The opera based on my comics. Not too many, since it only had 5 performances in Helsinki in 2000. All sold out. There have been some plans from time to time to bring it abroad or revive it here. So far with no success. So far. Nuff said

From 21

Aint it so?

Issue 21

Getting to work

So it has taken some time, but now it looks like i'll be lettering issue 21 starting tomorrow. It'll again be an utterly silly issue. The Uro-people storyline will run until issue 22 at least and then it's again time to move to other things. From issue 25 or 26 onwards I'll return to Fu and a whole lot of secrets will be revealed.

This week

I'm going to continue the Läskimooses project. During the weekend I got an excellent idea for a spin off. This is something I would really like to do. I've got quite a few of these spin-off ideas already and wouldn't mind to get started on them, but with the main series I still have at least 22 issues left to do, approximately 3 yrs of work. Actually would be fun to hire others to work on these. As soon as we get the first 2000 subscribers.
