Issues



the meaning was to make a 250 book in a year and half. Now after the current calculations the story is going to span to 50 issues and at least 1200 pages. I aim to finish in 2018, but who knows. Now, we could use some help to get some more subscribers. So if you are a reader and IF you like the story and would like to see it concluded, pass the word. I have all sorts of plans of full color issues and all, but my publisher is a poor person and we could use more subscribers. 900 or so... Ha!

Moving on



Issue 20 is out and issue 21 is drawn.    The special issue 19b has also be printed. The conclusion of the story is at least 25 issues away. There are some pages i like in past issues but so what?

subscription

So, this is a crazy 1000 page (well over thousand at this stage) comic book in making and subscriptions are pretty much the only way we can keep going. Go to kreegah.net and look it up. Comes with a handy translation to english.
The project has now reached it's imaginary midpoint with over 500 pgs of strangeness. The current issues reveal the roots of the finnish people in their former glory. After issue 24 we 'll get back to the mysteries of Fu. Are the Fu-people really extinct? AND after that the true nature of the killer planet will be finally revealed. Is there any way to avoid the cataclysm? And meanwhile: what on earth is that clanking sound? Hey, don't count on this coming out in book format!

You can order via publisher's website or just send email to kreegahbundolo (at) gmail.com.

Yes well, some day... I should've taken pictures. The panel took a lot of punishment but in the end I managed to turn it for the better (thanks to Eadward Muybridge). Tomorrow I'll go to the studio for just a few hours. Plan is to finish 1 to 3 panels. This issue requires one more week. Some texts not done, cover not done, 5 panels unfinished, 2 additional pages not done, club page not done...maybe I'll need more weeks. Problem was I started to add pages and panels and so here I am. Again.

Leftovers




Sketching




Issues 21 &22&23...



...play around with what's often called "realistic drawing style" for whatever reason. And so far i find it quite enjoyable. It's been over 20 yrs that I've tried my hand at this (you know, muscles and stuff) and it's going surprisingly smoothly. So, has it been more difficult? Slower? Nope, quite the contrary, I'd say. After 23 however I should be returning to more familiar styles . But I won't leave it to this. There's two issues planned closer to the end of LÄSKIMOOSES (maybe around issue 35) that should be very very much in the vein of Marvel and DC. AND if (IF) things go to the right direction: it 's going to be in 4 colors! Excelsior!

Well...



a bit over a page is what i managed to do. The structure of the issue is a bit on the weirder side (don't worry H it still has plenty of those muscular males that we all like so much) and the drawing style goes to all directions, but it's an action packed rant so i think i'll get away with all the strangeness.

Catching up



Should be able to do one page in a day. This week was not good enough. So today and tomorrow i will try to do 3pgs. We'll see...

Still dont know...






Yesterday was a diappointment. First of all I had slept badly which resulted to a bunch of bad decisions. Then i decided to start without sketching although i knew the panel could prove difficult. So i ended up drawing the same figure for the whole day and eventually ruining the scraper board. Sometimes a yesterday's mistake is today's success, but not today.   There are some compositional problems that can't be fixed, not anymore. And still today I dont quite know what Ohto Äijönpoika looks like. So back to the old drawing board.
On a brighter note: issue 20 is leaving for the printer
