* On se aika vuodesta // It’s that time of the year

Kirjoitettu 29.11.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(2: *Rrip* *scrap* 3: *Rrrrrip!!* 4: *Yum* *Munch *scrape* *rip* 7: *ding* 10: I need CHOCOLATE!!)

Kyseinen tapaus tuli menneellä viikolla vastaan eräällä bussireissulla. Kyllä minustakin joulukalenterin suklaat olivat ylihyviä, mutta eikö olisi ollut taloudellisempaa ostaa se levy Fazerin sinistä, tai edes vähemmän karmivaa?

En minä silti ole yhtään parempi, vaan aika paha suklaanarkkari itsekin. Joulu on perinteisesti sitä aikaa, kun kauppoihin kärrätään kirjaimellisesti torneittain suklaakalentereita, -pukkeja ja -konvehtirasioita. Perinteisesti niihin aikoihin yritän myös vähentää makean syöntiä kaikin puolin, joskus onnistuen mutta useimmiten yritys kaatuu viimeistään jouluna, kun saa lahjaksi neljä rasiaa suklaata.

Miten tässä näin kävi?

I witnessed this situation last week during a bus ride. Don’t get me wrong, I love those little chocolates in advent calendars but wouldn’t it be cheaper to buy a chocolate bar? Not to mention less freaky?

I’m not any better though, I’m a bad chocaholic myself as well. During Christmas time supermarkets across the country are loaded with literally towers of chocolate advent calendars, truffle boxes and Santas. It’s also a personal tradition of mine to try cut down on sweets at the same time and sometimes I succeed but usually my efforts get nullified by Christmas Eve, when I get four boxes of truffles as presents.

How did it end up like this?

* Hyvitys // Compensation

Kirjoitettu 21.11.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: Oh, how appropriate it is to be this useless as ’the blog of the month’, heh heh… 2: Although I have been really busy at school, a terrible mess with the ending of this period. And I didn’t have the time to draw during the Orivesi gig, it was all work you see with long distances. Christ what a hurry! 3: And then there was- 4: Okay, it’s compensation time!)

(2: Damn, I have such a strange feeling again. 4: Want a big apple? – … yeah… 5: Catch! – Thanks! 10: This isn’t our class anymore. – Morning… What are we gonna do today? – Work like hell!)

Teille, jotka ette tunnista Oriveden oppilaita: alarivin vasemmanpuoleisimmassa ruudussa on oman vuosikurssini oppilaita, viimeisessä nykyisiä. Olihan se alkuun hyvin erikoista, mutta nyt olen tottunut ajatukseen, että vanhassa sarjakuvaluokassa on nyt uusi jengi ja uusi fiilis. Hyviä tyyppejä olivat, voitte odottaa heiltä hyviä tarinoita. Helmi-Maaliskuussa pidetään bileet vanhoille oppilaille ja hermoilen jo valmiiksi onnistunko pilaamaan sen pienen määrän auktoriteettia, jonka onnistuin rakentamaan tuon viikon aikana.

For those who don’t recognise the people in this comic: in the last rows left side panel has my classmates, the last panel introduces the new students. At first it was very strange, the old classroom belongs to a new gang and has other vibes but I’m used to it now. They were okay and you can expect good stories from them. There’s a party for the old students in February or March and I’m already worried if manage to ruin the little crumbles of authority I succeeded to built during that week.

* Vapaa Seinä -vuodatus // The Free Wall wailing

Kirjoitettu 6.11.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: The Free Wall Day! -Sorry I’m a bit late! Had to loot some books for the Orivesi gig! *pant* -Yea yea, go and fetch your bilboard! – Where are the markers?! 2: Action! 3: Action..? – Hey wanna write- – Hey- 4: Fancy-asses! 5: – I can. All I’ve ever wanted to do is to write on walls. – Well GOOD! 6: – It’s cool. – Well it could have gone worse. But where were the 100 poster sticking guys who liked us on Facebook?)

Läksyt // Homework

(For the rest of the evening I surfed through Comics Class’ current student’s blogs. 1: Marko, Pirita, Pirjo, Minna… I wonder if I can learn these in time..? 3: Oh how TALENTED! Your sensei-to-be is so proud of you! – The excellence oozes through my screen! 4: Seriously, I’m not gonna demand these guys to think me as some ’sensei’. I’m more of a tutor, I guess. 6: Besides… It would be a bit twisted if the sensei’s pupils were more talented than her!)

* Open pikakoulutus // Teacher’s speed training

Kirjoitettu 4.11.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: Yesterday when planning next week’s gig in Orivesi I met Karri… 2: Do you mind if I draw? – Yeah, not at all 3: How you received any comments, what the current student’s are like? – Nno, not really… On the other hand I’ve been on the move a lot for the past few weeks.4: They are a bit more restless than you were. Some days are a bit slim on the class participations. – Hm. 5: What’s your approach? – (There.) My teaching is purely based on the mistakes I and the others made. I even got their permission. 6: A good starting point… – To be honest I have nothing else so far. 7: You have some who are more experienced, right? – There’s a couple of experienced ones, the other one’s almost my age. They both have their visions. 8: I think I have a ’mild’ credibility problem when I get there. *You bet with that hairdo*- Naaah, just relax your wrist and you’ll do fine.)

Pyöritän siis viikon kurssia, jossa aloitetaan porukalla pitkän sarjakuvan suunnittelu. Koska en ole mikään erityisen kokenut tai suuri visionääri, voin pohjata opetuksen vain omiin ja muiden epäonnistumisiin. Epäonnistuminen on kuitenkin erinomainen opettaja, eikä sitä pitäisi aliarvioida. Toivottavasti kaikki menee hyvin, ja todellakin toivon että jengi jaksaa tehdä töitä loppuun asti.

So I’m supervising a week long course where we begin to plan the long comic project. Because I’m not that experienced or a great visionnaire, the base for my teaching is on my and the other students’ failures. However failure is an excellent teacher and one shouldn’t underestimate it. I hope everything goes well and truly hope the guys keep working to the end.

* Vapaa Seinä // Free Wall

Kirjoitettu 1.11.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(Free Wall at Tampere city center on Friday the 5th of Novermber from 12:00-20:00 1: This is actually a school project but I’ll advertise it here as well. Terrible cold. 2: The point is to take back the city space so people could use it as public forum. The current situation is this: no stickers, no flyers, no posters, no nothing unless you pay for the advertising space first. 3: There’s alot better desription and a schedule on Facebook’s event calender. 4: You’ll find around twenty guys like this walking around the city center. 4: The ’walls’ won’t get destroyed. In the evening we gather them all in Keskustori(?) and every single bullet board is photographed and the pictures will be published in the Internet. It would awesome if the walls could stay on display somewhere. We’ll see how it goes. 5: If you guys have blog or comic ad stickers or something you should come and stick them on us. This is your chance!)

Niille, jotka eivät syystä tai toisesta Facebookissa käy // For those who don’t use Facebook:

27 opiskelijaa kulkee Tampereen keskusta-alueella ilmoitustauluksi pukeutuneena.
Tule kirjoittamaan viestisi, liimaamaan tarrasi, niittaamaan julisteesi tai jättämään kädenjälkesi.
Olemme Tampereen ammattikorkeakoulun taideopiskelijoita. Haluamme herättää ajatuksia siitä, missä on katufoorumi joka elää vuorovaikutuksessa ihmisten kanssa.
Ainoastaan rakennusmaiden väliaikaiset vaneriseinät ovat tarjonneet vapaata seinätilaa katutaiteilijoille, askartelijoille, runoilijoille ja tapahtumanjärjestäjille ym. vaneriseinät puretaan aikanaan. Me kaipaamme jotain pysyvämpää!
Lämpimästi tervetuloa kaikki! Puskaradio pyörimään; kutsukaa kaverit ja kaverien kaverit.
Paikat joissa olemme perjantaina 5.11 ilmoitetaan lähiaikoina.

”Who owns the space in our city?
We will own it on 5.11.2010 when 27 students will be walking around Tampere centre wearing bullet boards.
Come and write your message, glue you stickers, tag your posters or just to leave you own print.
We are the first year students off TTVO (TAMK arts) and we want to emphasise a question: Where is the street forum, which lives and develops in an interactive relationship with us, the citizens?
Until now, only temporary plywood of construction sites have granted free space for street artists, poets and event planners, and in time all these walls were torn down. We want something long lasting!
We are offering you a chance to make this point heard, so you are warmly welcome. Not just you, but also your friends and their friends, so spread the word!
The places you can spot us in Tampere at 5.11, will be listed shortly”
