* Nostalgiaa // Nostalgy

Kirjoitettu 12.04.2011 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: I suppose I could make a badge… 3: – Really fab. – Thanks.) (Pylly = Bottom, bum)

Tämän enempää ei ole kolmen päivän Oriveden reissulta. Vapaa-aikani riitti juuri ja juuri sommitteluopin itsenäiseen suorittamiseen iltaisin, johon kuului suorastaan naurettava määrä tehtäviä. Onneksi sarjakuvafestarien kynnyksellä sain Telakalla piirrettyä, kun yhden katon alle kokoontui monta legendaarista hahmoa.

This is all I drew during my three day gig in Orivesi. I had just enough free time to pass composition course (and the massive amounts of homework)  independently. Luckily I could draw something at Telakka, where Suuri Kurpitsa publications celebrated it’s 30th birthday and many living legends gathered under one roof.

(Jahnukaiset + my old Finnish teacher 3: What?! 4: Finland is a small country – Well of course! She was so awesome she has to be in the band!)

En ole varma laulaako hän todella Jahnukaisissa vai oliko se vain nopea sound check, mutta hän oli siellä myös jonkun bändin kokoonpanossa. //  I’m not sure if she really sings in Jahnukaiset or was it just sound check, but she was there with some band.

(1: But where is everyone? *Always too early* 2: A wizard is never late nor is he early… He arrives precisely when he mean- -Shut up Gandalf.)

Makee opettajamme Petteri Tikkanen // Our sweet sensei Petteri Tikkanen

Pirinen oli kokenut sellaisen muodonmuutoksen, että kesti puolisen tuntia tajuta kenestä oikein oli kysymys. Sori Pirinen (ja sori huonosta kuvanalaadusta, muste loppui taktisesti) // Sensei Ville Pirinen had transformed so it took me half an hour to realize who he was. I’m sorry Pirinen (and sorry for the poor quality, I ran out of ink)

* Luonnoskirja // The Sketch Book

Kirjoitettu 22.09.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(Mansi pawing Tursu’s injured back)

Lopuksi, ihan sarjakuvakin jonka tein eilen Helsingin luokkaretken päätteeksi.

(For a finale a comic I drew yesterday on our way back home from a school trip to Helsinki: The Truck drivers I saw today)

Luonnokset ovat uusi koulutehtävä. Viime viikolla saimme ison hienon luonnoskirjan, johon on täytettävä vähintään 40 aukeamaa elävää mallia, asetelmaa jne. Käytännössä katsoen piirrämme kaikkea mitä itse näemme, eli ei mielikuvia. Lisäksi on valittava taiteilija, jonka tyyliä on matkittava vähintään 10 aukeaman verran. Tunnistatte varmaan ketä matkin? Näistä luonnoksista saa antaa palautetta ja toivonkin, että teette niin.

The sketches are our new school assignment. Last week they gave us this large, fine sketch books and we have to fill them with at least 40 double pages of croquis, landscape, still life etc. Basically we draw everything we see, so no fantasies. On top of that we have to pick an artist or several and copy cat their style for at least 10 double pages. You probably recognize the one who’s style I’m copying? Feel free to give feedback on these sketches in fact I hope you do.

* Sarjakuvafestivaalit 11.-12.9. // Helsinki comics festival 11.-12.9.

Kirjoitettu 13.09.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(Comic Festivals! Saturday… 3: I have the itch that I’m not gonna win anything. It doesn’t make me that sad, though…  4: I wonder where all the others are? 6: Okay now I’m nervous)

(1: Didn’t win any places. 2: Kinda saw it coming but it still ’hit’ me. 3: A new try next year? – Oof! 4: It’s okay, Auntie Kylli competition makes me feel better. – Where’s my tooth?! )

Hekumallinen kuva, jonka piirsin Suomi-Ruotsi-maaottelun inspiroimana. Magneettiseen kielilukkoon antautuivat Ville Pirinen ja Kolbeinn Karlsson (sain molempien nimmarit!). Alempana Black Peiderin nimmari herkullisena yksityiskohtana.

The Finland vs Sweden match inspired me to draw this lustful picture. This magnetic tongue lock features Ville Pirinen and Kolbeinn Karlsson (got their autographs!). The lower signature belongs to Black Peider (Petteri Tikkanen) and serves as a delicious little detail.

(*remember that in my notebook the arrow points to the Ville x Kolbeinn picture* 1: I just creamed myself! BUT… 2: I overheard a small fragment of a comic  blog panel conversation – Comic blogs don’t get muc constructive criticism concerning the quality… 3: … and those who comment are usually people the blogger is already familiar with. 4: I’ve noticed this myself. Outsider commentors are a rarity. I haven’t received that much constructive critisism either… 5:… and if I did how much would I work for progress? 6: Talented obviously succeed but do people expect blog comics to be really that good?? * Or diary comics?)

(1: Could it be that comic diaries are good only for maintaining drawing routine? 2: It does improve your perception but other than that it doesn’t help much. Or does it? Does it?? 3: Oh well. This outburst is probably related to the fact that this blog is almost one year old. 4: I’ve updated the blog and churned out a reasonable amount of small prints. But what about this year? Quality? Content? What? 5: I must admit that I haven’t really thought of how I should pursue my career, not once. I just want to draw. But it’s not enough. – With these thoughts my Saturday ends…)


(Comics Festival SUNDAY!! – Jeans and a towel make the best pillow. 1: Today the morning was kinda slow. – Pete let’s go! – *whimper*2: We won’t make it to the Nissinen’s interview, but there’s Manninen’s Steve Ditko analysis- – Wanna go eat something? – YES. 3: We didn’t spot Pirinen or any of the yesterday’s heros, but I still bought one copy of Pirinen’s newest for Miikka. – Here, have this neat postcard! *Varataivas by Anne Muhonen* – signatures are cool but it’s possible to live without.)

(1: Time went by so quickly that I was a little surprised when people started departing towards their homes… *1st arrow: The backpack weighted 6 kilos & 4 hours in a train* *2nd arrow: Whimpered just for the fun of it*- Bye bye, it was nice to see you!  2: Damn, my train leaves in two hours too! 3: I bumped into Karri who was on his way to the ’Comic schools of Finland presented’ interview. -Wanna tag along? To speak? – When? – In 1-2 minutes. 4: That way I met some students from Muurla. – They were alright! 5: Pant! Soon after that I realised that my train was departing in 20 minutes. No ticket and my stuff were still in the locker… I was in a HURRY. 6: Then what? Well, along with the little crisis I got pretty good experiences and equally good comics. 7: The amount of work I did was ok considering how inexperienced I was… Now it’s time for more demanding tasks. We’ll see what I have come up with until next festival. Whew.)

Pienoinen kriisi tosiaan tarttui mukaan. Olen miettinyt mitä tämä blogi tarvitsee oman päiväkirjaotteeni lisäksi, ja miten onnistuisin toteuttamaan sen koulun ohella. Tuo kriisi voi ollakin ehkä parasta mitä festareilta tarttui mukaani, jos sillä saan tarjontaani kehitettyä edes piirun verran eteenpäin.

So I got this little crisis while I was in Helsinki. I’ve been wondering what this blog needs apart from being my own personal diary and how to achieve it with the school distracting me. That crisis just might be the best thing I got from the festival if I know how to use it to make my comics become something a little bit better.

* Viimeinen viikko – Torstai ja Perjantai // The Last Week – Thursday and Friday

Kirjoitettu 22.05.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(1: Pete is our class’ expert on shit. He specializes in old cartoons. 2: From his initiative we have watched The Bluffers, Maxie’s World, Superman… Not to mention Superted…  3: Today it was absolutely necessary to watch ” Barbie in Space” – Want! 4: Success was guaranteed. – This is so SHITTY! 5:  Iiris I gotta have this video! – You can’t, it’s mine. – SELL IT! – No I won’t! – WHY?! – Well I don’t know for fuck sake!)

Torstai vielä meni. Siivoiltiin ja muisteltiin menneitä… Peten takia katsottiin myös vanhoja lasten videoita, joita oli kasaantunut luokan kaappeihin. Perjantaina olikin sitten ihan eri fiilis.

Thursday was still okay. We were cleaning up and recollected the past months… Because of Pete we also watched old children’s videos we had stashed in our class lockers. Friday felt completely different. ** For those who don’t understand why we think so poorly of The Bluffers, I recommend watching clips featuring the Finnish dub on Youtube. **

(1: Today we wacthed more ”The Bluffers”. Eating warm pudding didn’t ease the sensation. 2: Yesterday we destroyed the cardboard poor-man we built for the comic exhibition. Inside it’s arm we collected whopping 41 euros. 3: Then… Friday turned into a sea of tears. – Bye Bye, Kitty… – Bye bye, Super Smash Bros. Brawl sessions… I never learned to play it… – NO! – YES! – Bye bye, Teachers… You were epic. Catch you later… – I really wasn’t supposed to cry my eyes out or draw long good byes… But fuck it, I couldn’t help it, this year has been incredible.)

Bye then, you all.

(1: My frist week is almost over. I have learned that I’m not ready. Not even close.  Since I’m used to being ’a big fish in a small pond’, this bothers me a bit. 2: Being distressed is still a normal part of creative process and is a vital part of growth and development. Therefore I’m am getting ’better’ all the time. 3: I hate beginnings.)

Koska olo oli niin hakea ja niin oudon surullinen, pistän tähän postaukseen loppukevennyksen. Eilen illalla, ennen kuin muutuin angstaavaksi zombiksi, piirsin päihtyneenä ystävieni pyynnöstä Chewbaccan ja sille tyttökaveriksi Shebaccan.

Because I felt so melancholic and strangely sad I end my post with something more lighter. Yesterday night, before I became an angsty zombie, from my friends’ request I drew Chewbacca and his lady friend, Shebacca.

* Hiljaisuuden jälkeen // After the Silence

Kirjoitettu 5.05.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(2: Aaaaaa… 3:  Splutch! 5: Now that I  have  had enough adventure… 6: I guess I can  return to normal life and draw  again.)

Ari Koivusen kiveskourintaseikkailu // The testicle groping adventure of Ari Koivunen

(3: Ffuck… That goddamn Remu sure thinksh… Doesn’t  know how to sing and definitely not how to play… Fuck I’m a bigger rock star than he is! 4: I’m  Ari Koivunen, bitches! What is he, what is he… 5: Fffffuckk…)

(1: Fffucking gipsyh… 2: … Could you please take off your hand?)

(Can I buy you a beer..? – No thank you.)

Yllä oleva sarjakuva on peräisin Ville Pirisen taidesarjakuvakurssilta.  Tässä tehtävässä ei tarvinnut olla erityisen taiteellinen, kunhan vain teki hommansa hyvin.  Ari Koivusen kiveskourintajuttu perustuu muuten tositapahtumiin – miltä osin, parempi etten kerro.

The comic above was drawn on Ville Pirinen’s art comics course. This assignment didn’t require super artsy stuff as long it was written and drawn well. The testicle groping thing is actually based on a true story – in which parts, it’s better if I don’t say.

For those who don’t know, Ari Koivunen is a finnish Idols winner and a heavy metal singer. At the moment he is the lead singer of  band Amoral – However Koivunen is better known for his boastful attitude, gambling depts, speeding tickets and boozing, not to mention his hatred towards a finnish rock legend Remu Aaltonen.

* Sukupuolten rajojen rikkomisen suunnattomat ilot // The overflowing joy of genderbending

Kirjoitettu 20.04.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


(4: I wonder how long I can goof around like this?)

Oli niin tylää että päätin muuttua mieheksi. Mutta lisää sukupuolinormien rikkomista on luvassa ältsin taiteellisessa kollaasisarjakuvassani Gulliverin retket:

I was so bored that I turned mysef into a man. But I’m breaking more gender norms in my super artsy collage comic Gulliver’s Travels:

(A long time ago in England there lived man called  Lemuel Gulliver. He decided he wanted to sail the seas and so he did. But on his very first travel a terrible tempest  crushed Gulliver’s ship and sunk it. The captain and all the sailors were thrown into the sea and they all drowned. Only Gulliver managed to swim away from the sinking ship.)

(Finally the tempest and the sea subsided. Gulliver noticed that he had swimmed near to an island’s shore and dragged himself out of the water. He was so exhausted  from all the swimming that he fell  on the grass dead tired. And he slept for two whole days!)

(When Gulliver woke up his legs and arms were tightly tied to the ground. Even his hair had been tied up and hard leather straps ran across his shoulders. Then he felt something move. He looked over his chest – what on earth, small men walking on him!)


(Gulliver was now their prisoner and he was would be taken to their capital, where all the Lilliput people could look at him. Then the men began vigorously build a trolley so they could bring Gulliver to their ruler.

(The convoy reahed the Capital, Gulliver was released but great chains were secured on his legs. Gulliver could hardly believe his eyes as he looked at the small Lilliput people who were staring at him in fear. Then he was taken to their ruler and Gulliver kneeled before him.   The End..?)
Pirisen taidesarjakuvakurssin tehtävä #2. Mä olen oikeastaan ihan tyytyväinen tähän, vaikka tämä on enemmän tuunattu kuin varsinainen kollaasisarjakuva.

Assignment #2 from Ville Pirinen’s art comic course. I’m actually rather pleased with this one, although this is more like pimped up comic than a collage.

* Laiska viikko // Lazy Week

Kirjoitettu 18.04.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.


Makkara pakenee jääkaapista // A Sausage espaces from a fridge

(1: It once happened that one day a piece of dead flesh became alive in a refridgerator.  2: This unfortunate convenience food reached self awareness which consisted of it’s ingredient’s awarenesses. 4: It could memorize some aspects of it’s ingredients’ lives. 5: It remembered it’s late legs. 7:  It remembered the air and wind. )

(1: *drip*)

Pöydältä löytyi tehtävä Tilsan viikolta, ’makkara herää henkiin ja pakenee jääkaapista’.  Kyseessä oli absurdin huumorin kurssi, mutta genrellä sai kuulemma revitellä. Ei oikeastaan edes huvittanut tehdä alkuunkaan hauskaa sarjakuvaa makkarasta, vaan kehittää tarina menneen elämänsä muistavasta eineksestä, joka sittemmin menettää järkensä. Takaisin vegetatiiviseen tilaan taantuminenhan voisi olla pakenemista?

From my desk I found one assignment from Tilsa’s course, ’ a sausage comes bakc to life and espaces from a fridge’. It was a course for absurd humor, but we were allowed to play with genres. Actually I wasn’t even in the mood for a funny comic about a sausage but to develope a story about a convenience food that remembers it’s previous life and then loses it’s mind. Regressing back into a vegetable (stupid choice of words) could be considered escaping?

Tämä on Pirisen taidesarjakuvakurssilta – abstrakti sarjakuva. Saatte itse miettiä mitä helvettiä tässä tapahtuu. Paska skanni ei ainakaan helpota asiaa.

This one is from Ville Pirinen’s art comic course – an abstract comic. You can figure out yourself what the hell is this one about. Shitty scan sure doesn’t make it easier.
