* Muutto, osa 1 // Moving out, Part 1

Kirjoitettu 31.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(- Should we go outside to get some fresh air?)

Huh. Muutto on kyllä ohi, mutta vasta tänään sain skannerin tykkäämään Vista-läppäristäni. Tai sitten en, sillä nyt HP:n ja CS2:sen yhteistyö takkuaa… Sarjakuvia on siis enemmänkin, mutta vain tämän ensimmäisen sain selailtavaan muotoon. Kaatuvaan CS:ään meni hermo toisen sarjakuvan kohdalla, kolmatta en välittänyt enää edes skannata. Ehkä huomenna.

Whew. I’ve already moved in, but I didn’t manage to get my scanner work with my Vista laptop until today. Or maybe not, since now the co-operation between HP and CS2 is nonexistant… I have drawn more comics than this, but this was the only one I could edit. Igave up on editing the second piece because of crashing CS and didn’t even bother to scan the third one. Maybe tomorrow.

* Heavy Duty

Kirjoitettu 25.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: YES! I found a Heavy Duty stapler at first try! I wonder how much this costs? 2: *91,80 euros*)

Jos koululta löytyy vastaava nitoja, niin ehkä voin lykätä sen ostoa vähän aikaa. Tuo Heavy Duty on vähintäänkin pakollinen, jos mielii minikokoa suurempia omakustanteita nitoa.

Ai niin, tämän sarjakuvan piirsin sillä Manuscript-kynällä. Kuten ruutujen hailuista viivoista voittekin päätellä, rakas sivellinkynäni kieltäytyy taas jostakin syystä yhteistyöstä. Voi olla, että pipetin mukana säiliöön tulee sen verran ilma, ettei muste pääse kuplien takia liikkeelle.

If I manage to find a similar stapler from the school I may not need to buy one just yet. That Heavy Duty stapler is more than necessary if you want to make bigger than miniature sized small prints.

Oh yeah, I drew this one with my Manuscript fountain pen. As you can see from the panels’ shaky outlines my dear brush tip pen has refused to work with me yet again for some reason. It could be that every time I refill the cartridges air gets inside them and the bubbles prevent ink from flowing into the tip.

* Jätskinnälkäiset tiput // Ice Cream Crawing Chicks

Kirjoitettu 23.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: Because today was a pretty dull one, I’ll tell you about last Saturday when Miikka and I were at Laukontori… 2: I wonder if the flea market is crowded… 3: Hey Emmi look look look!! 4: *chirp chirp chirp*)

* Ehdollinen rakkaus // Conditional Love

Kirjoitettu 22.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: I bought a LOVELY new pen! 2: It comes with three different calligraphy nibs and it’s compatible with Pelikan brand ink cartridges! 3: I love it already! Wow! 4: ”Hello, I’m Pentel GFKP Japan brush tip pen!” – ”I’m Manuscript M  Calligraphy fountain pen. Nice to meet you!” 5: We’re going to have SO much fun together! 6: If you think that there are things greater than the love between a woman and her pen… … You are SO wrong.)

Tämä kuherruskuukausi päättyy viimeistään siinä vaiheessa, kun sopivia patruunoita ei löydykään ja joudun täyttämään niitä itse.

This honey moon will end at that point when I can’t find the right cartridges and I have to refill them myself.

* Rutinaa // Whining

Kirjoitettu 21.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: All new groups have a certain influence. First signs of ”adaption” is often seen in clothing. – Let’s go grab a coffee. 2: This can cause problems within other groups: – What are you wearing?  – Duh, lol clothes. – How artistic! – same as always, just a different combo. – Just don’t forget us, and don’t become an artsy fartsy… – … I went through the same in Orivesi, it was only milder.)

Onneksi tuollainen kränä on jäänyt luultua vähemmäksi. Ei hätää kullannuput, en mä voi olla yhtään enempää pikkusormi pystyssä kuin mitä jo olen.

Vihdoinkin muistin merkata tuon blogiosoitteen kuvan reunaan.

Thank goodness there hasn’t been as much of badmouthing as I feared. Don’t worry muffins, I couldn’t keep my pinkie up more than I already do.

I finally remembered to write the blog adress on my comic.

* Eka koulupäivä // First Day at School

Kirjoitettu 17.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: First Day at TTVO – I dun wanna. 2: First we listened, followed and then again listened to others for hours. – Baa!  – Let’s go see the second floor. 3: Then we were smacked awake with a mind map  assignment. – Read the curriculum and then analyze it. 4: It was a group assignment. – I’m too tired to think. – I’m not getting it. 5:  It’d be better if I went to see the student counselor now and not after six months when I already have managed to screw things up. – That’s what happened in high school.)

Opintosuunnitelma oli kieltämättä vähän vaikeaselkoinen. Ehkä mä selviän jos kiusaan vain tutoreita, opoa en ehkä tällä viikolla ehdi tapaamaan.

The curriculum was kind of hard to understand, I must admit.  Maybe I’ll manage if I pester the tutors instead of the student counselor, I may not have enough time for the latter.

* Aarteet // Treasures

Kirjoitettu 16.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: A good heap of items have piled up in the living room. 2: I kept thinking about the stuff that won’t move into the new apartment with me.  3: I no longer have room for these pounds and pounds of treasures from my childhood and teen years. 4: There’s quite a mountain of stuff in the living room.  Surely you won’t leave them there? – Nah… 5: It’s not like there going to stay here for long anyway. 6: … how are you feeling? 7: I’m wearing a bathrobe! I never wear bathrobes! – Oh dear.)

Vietin lähes koko eilisen käyden läpi muuttokuormaani ja heittäen pois vanhoja piirroksia. Iltaa myöten minulla oli päällä pelkkä kylpytakki, jota en todellakaan käytä usein. Käytän sitä niin harvoin, että yllätyn joka kerta sen olemassaolosta kun käyn läpi vaatekomeroa. Nyt kääriydyin siihen koko päiväksi ensimmäistä kertaa sitten teinivuosien, ellei peräti lapsuuden..?

Yesterday I spent almost the entire day going through my moving cargo and throwing away old drawings. Most of the day I was wearing nothing but  a bathrobe which I usually don’t wear. I wear it so rarely that I’m slightly surprised by it’s existence every time I go through my closet. Now I wrapped myself in it for almost a day for the first time since my teen years or maybe even childhood..?

* Tälle ei saisi nauraa // You shouldn’t laugh at this

Kirjoitettu 14.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


( 1: Violence in relationships is a serious matter, and you shouldn’t laugh at this comic. 2: Stupid woman! 3: Ow! 4: Barbarian! 5: I resent you so much. – I resent you too.)

Kun aluksi suunnittelin piirtäväni sarjakuvan nykyisen poikaystäväni ja minun välisestä vitsistä eli näytellystä parisuhdeväkivallasta sellaisenaan sitä selittämättä,  joutuisin mahdollisesti dissauksen kohteeksi. Tuntuu tosin siltä että nyt kun esitän teille tämän sarjakuvan sarkastisen sensuroituna kommentteihin saattaa kolista pari tyytymätöntä riviä.

When at first I planned to draw this comic about my and my boyfriend’s little inside joke which is acting like physically abusive spouses without really explaining it I knew I could get stuck in the middle of a flame war. Now that I have presented this sarcastically censored comic to you, I think there might  soon be a few lines of disapproval waiting for me in the comments section.

* Taivaallisin Pienlehti -kisa // the Heavenliest Small Print contest

Kirjoitettu 13.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: Okay, so being as comics oriented people as you are, you propably have heard of the Heavenliest Small Print contest held at the Helsinki Comics Festival? 2: Three best small prints, fame but not necessarily glory. 3: However the contest required three copies to be sent and I have only one copy of Vagina Dentata. 4: So I went through my stashes in case I have enough Candy King or Dr. Identity Crisis copies I could send. 5: Then suddenly I revealed two copies of Vagina Dentata inside a paper case! Jumping Jesus!)

(1: I think I was supposed to sell these at the Tampere Kuplii festival..? *reserved* 2: Surely I have remembered to deliver all the bought copies?! 4: Okay guys: if you have ordered and godhavemercy even payed for your copy without getting it,  SHOUT. I really, really want to enter this contest but I also want to be sure.  There’s no point even dreaming about victory and fame if I ruin my reputation first, right? I’m not taking any *new* orders, though…)

* Uusi järjestys / A New World Order

Kirjoitettu 10.08.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1:Yeah, hi busters. It’s been a while. 2: Taking that spontaneous break did good for me – but wait a sec I gotta switch ink wells, this one smells outrageous. 3: Let’s have Pelikan, that’s good… Shanghai has a really strong odor although I just bought it? 4: *Scrub scrub scrub* 5: There! 6: So what’s going on.. I made it to TTVO.  School starts on 17th. I’m a bit nervous.  I have been traveling with my buddies from the academy because we might not see each other again too soon. There’s this one trip to the local pub Sarianne we have to make… )

(1: I even found an apartment when one of my academy buddies stated he needed someone to move into his flat as he moves out to Kokkola. 2: Life changes radically this fall – just like it changed last year when I moved to Orivesi. Still… 3:  … this is completely different. 4: After spending a whole school year doing the most relevant thing imaginable – comics – it’s no longer easy to surrender yourself to be taught by teachers of other media. – Of course it’s worth to try everything but you know what I mean.  5: To be honest I don’t agree with some of their views about art or learning. 6: I could be wrong of course. That’s why I chose to go studying. To try. *sucker* 7: But that place ain’t Orivesi. That era is over.)

(1: I drew that comic yesterday when I grew tired of the idleness that has been going on for weeks. 2: Summer has been full of stories that might have turned into pretty decent comics… 3: … good and pretty unpleasant ones too. 4: Maybe with my new strenght I manage to deliver them to you too. That is all.)

Lopetan lomani suhteellisen pliisulla tilanneraportilla. Kouluhan minua huolettaa, vaikka toistuvasti saankin kuulla että hyvin se menee. Jos ei mene, häivyn sieltä ja opettajat saavat imeä säkkejään. Se olisikin helpoin vaihtoehto, jos olisin totaalisen eri mieltä opettajien kanssa. Pelkäänkin ehkä eniten, että lähden typerään menestyskilpailuun kuten lukion alussa. Kestin sitä menoa vuoden ja olin sitten sairaalakunnossa. Olisinkohan  nyt viisaampi?

I end my break with a rather lame status report. Of course I’m worried about the school although people constantly tell me I’m going to be fine. If it doesn’t, I’ ll blow that joint and theachers can suck on their dingleberries. That would be the easiest scenario, disagreeing with the teachers 100 percent. Perhaps my biggest fear is that I start this stupid success competition like I did on my freshman year in high school. I could take it for one year and then it was six months hospital care for me. Am I wiser now?
