Some people

Some people maybe are sure Läskimooses is coming out as a book.

The year was ok. I kept the schedule and the story proceeded. Today I calculated that it's still going to be 48 issues all and all approximately. Maybe 49, probably not 51. Those are the figures. 19 issues remain if the calculations are right. Strangely I feel issue 29 was a new beginning, the actual beginning. Maybe it was, I don't care.

My perspective to what I do is that it is not really mine. It's just something that comes through me. This causes sometimes problems. Earlier I wanted to leave my name out of my books and it always became too big an issue. Sometimes I used mister Matti Hagelberg in order to create this alternate persona, this creator to the work. I mainly just want to work.

Spin offs

I have very rough first ideas for several spin off series. Three of these only require funds to get them started. Already know who I want to ask to write & draw these. So: funds... And I have a thing I would like to try. We wait...

All of my books. The books I've done the book I'm working on. And am I getting any closer to..? Sometimes, occasionally. After Läskimooses maybe,
maybe something


Portraits? I do portraits. It's not expensive. I need the practise and money doesn't hurt. Economy series portraits, marker on scraperboard 15x15cm 500€ a piece. Poster series portraits 15x22 1000€. Poster series portraits can also be printed into a giant size two color poster (500 copies) for added 700€.

Issue 30 just starting

Which means (or should mean) that less than 20 issues remain. Estimate is 7 issues in a year, but since I don't yet have a grant for next year, no promises, not yet. It might be a tough year ahead.

Yes well, it's finished. Issue 29 & in issue 30 I will get back to Mars after a longer break. Some trouble with my plans to do a book for LDC. Hope it'll all be solved.

How many

How many spin offs would be good? I think I have ideas for 5 so I would have to say: ten. This will have to wait til we get the funding.

Lethal hands

Lethal hands, the first Läskimooses spin off, drawn and written by Leo Kuikka is at printers. Meanwhile I have a fairly decent idea of what will take place in parts 2&3 of this 4 part mini-series. Lots of fun making up stuff for this one.

Coming along

There's this book coming along that I made with Riikka Ala-Harja and I've been working on the cover and title pages and such. Book should be out in the spring from LIKE.  Looks promising at this particular stage. Nuff said.
