(1: We had a visit from writer and musician Kauko Röyhkä here in our academy yesterday. He talked a lot about his career and then one girls asked him wasn’t he scared of becoming a professional artist. 2: ”Why would I’ve been scared”,Röyhkä asked in return. ”Who I should have been scared of?” 3: What am I scared of? 4: If becoming an artist scares me so damn much a little reality check is in place. 4: Critics and other comics artist can chew me out, of course. But they won’t come and kick my ass no matter how much I suck.)

Olen lukenut Kauko röyhkältä vain yhden kirjan ja kuunnellut yhden c-kasetillisen musiikkia. Olen silti hyvilläni, kun meninkin kuuntelemaan, kun hän kerran luonamme vieraili. Vaikka kirjailijaa musta ei saa ja vielä vähemmän muusikkoa, Röyhkän kannanotto pelkoon ja ahdistukseen oli juuri sitä mitä tarvitsin. ”En mä tiedä, ehkä mä olin liian tyhmä pelätäkseni mitään.” Minusta Röyhkä osaa erotella aiheellisen pelon ja irrationaalisen pelon tavalla, johon kovin moni ei pysty. Minä pelkään kaikkea: tulevaisuuttani, sitä pystynkö elättämään itseni piirtämällä ja olenko ihan paska. Ehkä on aika hyväksyä että elämä on vaikeaa, lopettaa pelkääminen ja aloittaa toiminta.

I’ve read only one book and listened only on c-cassette from Kauko Röyhkä. I’m still glad that I went to listen to him anyway. I’m no writer, even less musician, but his comment on fear and anxiety was just what I needed. ”I dunno, maybe Iwas too stupid to fear anything.” I think Röyhkä has the ability to separate rational and irrational fear unlike most of us. I fear everything: my future, the fact I might not be able to support myself with drawing and that I might be a crappy artist. Maybe it’s time to really accept that life is difficult, stop all this fearing and take action.

* Neutraalia jäkätystä

(1: My sister ask me the other day why I draw myself like this. 2: after my hospital stay 2005-2006 I just started drawing these kind of portraits. 3: A reasonable question, since in 2004 I drew myself like this. 5: I still don’t know how to answer her question. 6: At that time I was really exhausted, but I don’t like to sum up my change as degeneration. 7: Maybe I accepted my new Snork Maiden look the same time I accepted myself as a feminine being. My feet on the other hand are another story.)

Itse asiassa aika moni kysyy miksi piirrän itseni niin epäinhimillisen näköiseksi. Ei tässä tyylissä mielestäni ole mitään erikoisen epäinhimillistä, mutta samankaltaisuus Niiskuneidin kanssa on lisääntynyt otsatukan myötä.

Actually many ask me why I draw myself looking so inhuman. I don’t think this style is that particularly inhuman loking, but the resemblance with Snork Maiden is even greater now that I have bangs.

Esittelysarjakuva, jonka Mari Ahokoivu teetätti viikko sitten. An introductory comic which our teacher Mari Ahokoivu assigned us to do a week ago.

(1: Emmi is the one who sits almost at the other end of the table and is sometimes too noisy. 2: There’s usually a pile of junk where she sits. The piles sort of spread to the neighbours’ tables too. 3: Emmi has some difficulties with her fictional form and is constantly changing (+ different variations). 4: Emmi makes funny faces while drawing. (Die, you villain!) 5: Emmi is a bit uncertain about her skills and may ask stupid questions. (Does my line art seem sheepish?) (What?) 6: Sometimes Emmi suffers agony for the world, fear of the future and the basic anxiety concerning her future profession. 7: Yet she recovers fast. (Today we get dessert!) 8: Emmi would like to became a comics artist and is eager to learn.)
