The LDC-book requires something. Two panels for starters... Color for inside cover, two extra pages, if I feel like it AND a go through. Then only then can I turn my attention to that issue 30.

One more class ends. I have been teaching at the University from 1998. That's almost 20 years. Haven't had any pedagogical studies, all i know I've learned from example. That and practise. But the example I had was the best possible to be had. The example from such brilliant people as Sakari Marila, Helga Reinikainen, Kaarina Kaikkonen, Raimo Puustinen. I was fortunate enough to study under all these people. And I learned a lot from them. And what I learned about teaching was:  be interested, pay attention, care. None of my teacher's knew much about comics, but without them I would never have gone to the direction I went. I got from them exactly what I needed at the exactly right moment. And because of them I think that teaching matters.

What I have

What I have left to do of the LDC- book is colors for front and backcovers, 4 panels on four pages... And that's it. More or less that's it. Some adjustments here and there, but looks like I'll get back to the actual Läskimooses soon after the winter holiday.

To be honest....I would like some greater challenges. And yes, I know, plenty of challenge with this small book I'm working on, but... Like that opera that I wrote the libretto for. But but but
I do have this one plan. And I hope it'll work out BECAUSE it's so cooool...


Name of the LDC book: Läskimooses Powerbook

Bought 4 packages. That's enough for 320 pages. I have a couple of packages at the studio too so maybe I'm now all set. Estimate is that I'll still have to draw 500 pages to get the story finished.
