* Vagina Dentatan uusintapainos Tampere Kupliissa!

Kirjoitettu 21.03.2013 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.

Hear ye, hear ye!

Jos jumalat vain suovat ja onni käy, Tampere Kupliissa Kustannusyhtiö Kumiorava latoo pöydälleen uusintapainoksen Vagina Dentataa! Uusintapainos sisältää uuden lopun sekä uusitun dialogin, vanhasta parisuhdesekoilusta tinkimättä. Mukana myös Suomisen sedän esipuhe! Myynnissä myös Keskiviikko, Dickie Hollywoodissa sekä muut Kumioravan hienoudet!

Kupliissa nähdään!

EDIT: JA SIELLÄ LEPÄÄ! Vagina Dentatat tuli ehjänä kotiin ja ovat myynnissä huomisesta lähtien Kumioravan myyntipöydällä, hiukan myöhemmin myös nettikaupassa. Pomoilta tuli myös tällainen huomio: Keskiviikkoa on jäljellä enää 20 kpl!

* Tampere Kuplii -muistelo // Tampere Kuplii festival recap

Kirjoitettu 11.05.2012 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.

1: Alrighty… Now that school’s over  and Tampere Kuplii festival ended almost a week ago it’s just might be the time for an update. 2: So my newest album ”Keskiviikko” (Wednesday) was published during the festival – O’ lord. 3: At the same time the current students from Orivesi released their own fantastic comics – And all of them were sold out! 4: So on Sunday there was this short interview about Keskiviikko *smashing stress perm*)


(1: Conveniently, the next morning I woke up with the cognitive skills of a potato. – Oh hi! You know what I could get a copy of Keskiviikko… -Harblargh?! 2: And finally it was time for the interview…  -Sorry Janne but I’m really nervous… – It’s okay, I have a killer hangover right now. 3: I suppose it went well – And Safari Monseigneur is awesome, because they kill a horse in the cover!)


(1: And great big Thanks to all of you who purchased a copy of Keskiviikko. I thank you for your interest and hope you have a good reading experience. 2: Of course because Keskiviikko is far from perfect, it would be really good to have some feedback. Constructive criticism is always welcome.)

(1: When you get feedback you can learn from it and make more and better comics. Then some day you can give a similar reply to an interviewer P.A. Manninen gave on Sunday in his own interview:   2: I draw approximately 200 pictures a day… Then again how should I know. When you draw five days a week in a terrible hurry you can no longer remember how much you drew last week.)


(When you’re good enough you just have to keep making new comics even if you don’t want to do it anymore..!)


(1: *kick* GAKH!  2: OW! That HURT! – And it’s gonna hurt even more if you keep on with that nonsense! 3: It’ll be alright, I’m sure of it. Have some chocolate. … stupid whore.)

Olin ihan tosissani siitä palautteesta: jos tulee mieleen parannusehdotuksia, vaikkakin ihan pieniä, niin lähettäkää niitä maililla tänne.  Kynnys tällaiseen palautteenantoon on varmaan aika korkea, mutta asiallinen ja rakentava kritiikki on aina hyvästä, siksi sitä olisi kiva saada.

* 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)

* Loma // Summer holiday

Kirjoitettu 7.06.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.

(It’s remarkable how equipments and their state affect on the number of articles on your blog… – Thank you, Tikkanen-sensei!)

Ostin viime lokakuussa itselleni synttärilahjaksi hienon täytettävän sivellintussin. Ongelmana on se, etteivät Suomen markkinoilla myytävät ampullit käy kyseiseen kynämalliin, eikä Tempera, josta kynän ostinkin, myy niitä.  Omistamani neljä ampullia tulivat kynän mukana. Tyhmää/Outoa? Ainoana vaihtoehtona on täyttää tyhjenneet ampullit itse, ja se onnistuikin pienen sähläämisen jälkeen. Ei sillä, että operaatio olis ollut mitenkään vaativa, olen vain sähläri.

Last October I bought myself a refillable brush tip pen as a birthday present. The problem is that you can’t find the required kind of ink cartridges in Finland and Tempera, the store from which I bought the pen doesn’t carry them. The cartridges I have came with the pen. Stupid/Weird? So the only alternative is to fill the empty cartirdges manually and I managed to do that after some minor problems. Not that the operation was difficult at all, I’m just clumsy.

(1: Incoming Week Report 2: The first thing, my current job situation. – I called Tiimari* on last Monday morning and they said they can’t take any trainees since some bloke was fired. They aren’t allowed to take new trainees until after nine months at least. 3: I probably should be pissed but there’s no really bad feelings at all. Job seeking was a whim at the employment office anyway. I have plenty of stuff to do without a job.)

* Tiimari is a Finnish chain that sells crafts supplies, small toys and houselhold objects.

(Diagram for the State of Motivation in TTVO Entrance Examination *The state varies from ’Really wild'(top) to ’Really bad'(bottom)* Monday: – Roar! – Morale was pretty high at first but because of high expectations but by evening it had sunken down to weeping point – I’m Scared!  Tuesday:  On the morning morale was rising thanks to rest and self-cheering -Raah! – However motivation went down again after a rough evening Wednesday: Motivation is sinking… The target questions her choice. Paradoxically she regains her will to fight Thursday:  – They can suck on their balls! – The target went through the last day relaxed after realizing that TTVO isn’t the center of the Universe, it’s not even the center of Finland. The mood improved even more towards the evening, when there was hanging out with friends.)

(1: So now I’m just waiting. They’ll let me know about TTVO by the start of August. About my success on the press production assistant* line will be informed during June.  2: Before that I’ll get some rest and aim to avoid any bad conscious. 3: It should be easy, I get tutored every day on the subject. 4: *whoosh* 5: The Finnish summer is too short anyway!)

* I’m not sure if that’s the real name. Couldn’t find it on dictionary.

* Tampere Kuplii 2010

Kirjoitettu 21.03.2010 - Karva. Kategoriassa Luokittelematon.

( Tampere Kuplii comics festival 2010, Saturday 20th of March. 1:Regardless fo the fact that there were too many people in one car the trip from Orivesi to Tampere went well. Not one police in sight. *Iiris’ Volvo* 2:  The small prints had been copied and finished the previous evening… 3: … and our class’ own selling booth waited at the Klubi! – SUPER EXCITING! 4:  I was wearing my ’cool’ Phantom-esque skirt. 5: My shift didn’t start until 3 PM so I had lots of free time.  -So where to?)

(1: our teacher Karri led us to Werstas… … quickly… 2: And to the crowded selling areas. 3:  Random time killing ensued for the next few hours. – HUNGRAYH! 4: At last, when we found an interesting lecture* we had to leave in the middle of everything so we could get back to Klubi in time – Ass! *Top 10 weirdest superheroes* 5: Treading in the  rain.)

(1: During our shift a group of readers, of which I didn’t even know  gathered around our table. ”Vagina Dentata” had been selling like hotcakes. 2: I sure hope I don’t get too cocky?  3: My shopping bag was filled with Ville Pirinen’s newest album, Jyrki Nissinen’s ’Auttajahai’ and several small prints… ALL OF THEM ROCK MY SOCKS OFF.  -DEELICIOUS.)

(Sunday the 21st of March. 1: Our selling booth earned us whopping 96 euros and 50 cents! 2: Today’s mission is to spend that money on COMICS. 3: The selling area was a lot more quiet today so the job wasn’t that bad at all *money bag* 4: After 3 hours we were left with 9 euros. 5: Among many others, the shopping bag included the Comics Finlandia 2010 winner’ Eero’ album from Petteri Tikkanen, with an inscription.)

(1: All but two reserved copies of Vagina Dentata were sold out.  Wild! 2:  ’ Lapsiorja’ a.k.a ’Child Slave’ and other prints too were selling nicely. THANK YOU ALL. 3: It’s your help that can make me and all the other students at our class to become noteworthy comic artists. I am grateful.)
