Yesterday I counted that I have 450 pages left to do. Might be a bit more, but close to that figure. At the moment I don't have any funding for the project. Maybe it has been going on for too long maybe. Hard to give a grant to a thing that just doesn't seem to end? Yeah who knows. Eventually I will be able to finish it, but without funding it'll take twice longer. 450 pages. It either sounds a lot or not that much, depending. Depending of the perspective. It's 2 years maybe bit more so it's less than 6 years, less than 4. And 450 is less than half of the pages I've already than. But it's almost one third of the book. And quite surprisingly structure-wise I've reached a true turning point of the story. Just about where I would place the golden division.

Working on issues 39 and 40. 39 requires some adjusting and 3 pages to draw, 40 I am writing. And 40 is a special issue. Why? Because with issue 40 I will pass page 1000 of the story. This is my first book/project that'll go past that benchmark.
Issues 37 and 38 are still at the printer. You won't be disappointed with issue 37. Then you'll see...

Not much happening here.
Five Suomaa people -pages now done and it'll start to run in all its 4color weirdness in January 2018 in Kirkko ja Kaupunki.
Finally managed to start issue 39 and it's rolling along nicely. Part of the story, big part, is text only so it's quite different from issues 37 and 38. And it's faster to do. After two weeks I'm now around page 12. Looks like it's going to be at least 32 pages so still plenty to do. So that's all for now. Waiting for issues 37 and 38 to come from the printer.
