A rare print

I'm selling a couple of these. My first woodcut.


I don't think the day was succesful. After a weeks break this is usually how it goes. Still, I managed to finish 3 panels and I'm a bit closer to the end. Maybe that is good then.


With every second finished issue I come up with an unplanned extra one. So tell me, when will this book be finished. Haha.

I'd like to find a way to make me less dependant of grants. For this purpose I'm making an effort to sell some older pieces. I'm not holding my breath.

Well one solution would be to get more subscriptions...5000 more. Not likely. Even 500 seems impossible.

I wouldn't want to take a break from Läskimooses, but...I don't know. Ah, now there's not much I can do. Maybe something will come up as it usually does.

Really really funny

What is really funny is that every second month or maybe every third I come up with something  meaningful that I want to add to the story, and in most cases I do. The downside is that with every twist and turn I have to add issue or half of an issue. And this will lead to 1500 pages. No. I'd like to keep this below 1200. And for many reasons. One is that in order to go to 1500 I would need a lot more subscribers OR a BIG grant.


What interests me is to maybe finish this book and then finalize it. Three years remaining of the project and every time I take a break it's always time wasted.
So far it has been a year of promises and that's all. Wouldn't mind something actually happening.

One day this project will be finished, but then it'll be over 1000 pages. And for what purpose? I hope it'll be revealed to me before the end.

Just handed over the two finished issues to my publisher. Now what i'd like to do is to letter the next issue AND draw maybe three maybe five before summer holidays.
I also got a handful of collages part of which I had totally forgotten. And just about the right moment since two of them fit exactly to the fortcoming issues. I tend to do the collages several at the same time and then what happens i'm in danger of forgetting what exactly I have already done.
Also with one of my friends I had a good conversation of among other things landscape, Beckett and writing.

Only the corrections to the texts remain and the issues 24 & 25 are done. Mmm...not bad. Will go through the script of issue 26 tonight and if everything goes alright I will letter it tomorrow. After that a break for the summer... More or less. Some occasional days at the studio. And


Tomorrow I should get Silvia Regina by UPS...

Ok, so...

Struggling to get issue 25 finished in 2 days. Woke up at 2 am partly because this feel that i need to do something to the text. Now that i'm moving along to part four would the writing require some extra...thing. More power...
But part three still needs 3 more issues so there's no actual rush, yet.
