We have issues


Basically all that remains of issue 28 is the color for backcover. Still need to go through the material and all that, but basically it's all done.
The plan is to get 7 issues out each year and now it looks possible. BUT: before I can move on to issue 29 I have to do a two-row strip for Ilta sanomat & do some extra material for a forthcoming collection of the yleisönosasto comic I did with Riikka Ala-Harja some while back. AND the first Läskimooses spin off comic book is under way. Drawn and written by Leo Kuikka this mini series brings a new angle to the main story.

And almost I forgot the Le Dernier Cri book I'm to do or at least to get started with. Boy!

Issue 28 almost done. Couple of pages still require some work and the collages need to be glued together. And i need to go through all the pages and see if all's in order. Started to work with the collages today:

Found a piece to this puzzle I am working on. A piece I didn't know was missing.

From time to time

From time to time I notice I've written something I find is not quite right and then I have to think out a way to incorporate that into the story. Usually this means an extra issue. AND this just happened. I could also perhaps wait until the thing is all finished, but then again...there's something these sort of things bring to the writing. When I was starting this thing I was thinking a lot about telling stories at a campfire and how they form and change during time until they become stagnated to something fixed. And then I was thinking of doing something which was opposed to this and to keep the story "alive" for as long as possible. And to surprise even myself with this thing.
In the end the story will then be fixed, but with any luck the joints will show and it'll have this clear history of becoming. Maybe.

Slow down

Things seem to always slow down at this stage. One pg left to do, then color to front cover, then club page. And the 2-3 text additions/corrections. Agh I just want to be done with this issue.
