Festivals and such

They bring me down in a major way. So thank u for asking but can I please just stay home. There's nothing I can do or say to make my books and projects even slightly more interesting than they are. Keep me separate from my orphans.

Why do graphic novels when you can do comic books.


As I see it Läskimooses is the notes for a piece to be played by the reader.

Something for the Helsinki festival perhaps.

Issue 31 is going to the printer this week and this brings to mind (for some reason) the subplots, substories that I want to add to the main book. There are several. And I'm making lists to keep them in mind, not to forget any. And I just remembered one that's not on any of the recent lists.
These subplots, sidestories should take 200 pages approximately and then be...maybe...published as a separate book of corrections and additions. This book I plan to draw 2019. Depending if I manage the funding...the grants. Couple of applications in at the moment. This is how it goes.

Issues of this year are late. First one only just came out. But I'm catching up. Issue 31 is almost rady for the printer and it's totally silly. You might be better of just to skip it and wait til issue 32 comes out. And issue 32 is proceeding. Quite nicely, thanks for asking. 4 pages to do, oh or maybe 5. And the cover. It'll certainly be done before end of August, but won't make it to the Helsinki festival.
Meanwhile: a killer issue of Tappavat Kädet (lethal hands) by Leo Kuikka is just about ready for lay out. This second issue of the series is pretty brilliant. No idea when it's out...during the fall. Yes and before christmas issues 33, 34, 35... Agh, 2 years to finish. Subscribe and support.
