Other small update

I'm leaving on saturday to Prague, to draw the graphic novel I always wanted to draw (which you guessed is of course D'Moleyk).

If you want to follow how it's progressing, you can check out the facebook and twitter pages for this comic.

So here are the links:

A slight update..

I finally did that image to Dmoleyk's homepage
At least now you know something about the tone and characters.
Image was made with Winsor-Newton brush, which is all kinds of better than brushpen.

Publishing on ipad!

I have published three comic books for ipad!

However, I'm afraid they are in finnish only, but you can purchase them if you have access to finnish ibookstore.

Here are straight links:
Lopunperä 1
Lopunperä 2

Teräsbetonimetsä is made by my friend, Kallematti Waris. And it's brilliant.

Some watercolor

I did these colour vignettes for the next issue of Sarjainfo.
In these pictures are sarjainfo's editor Reetta Laitinen, talented artist and comics collector Jyrki Vainio, and revered swedish comics journalist Fredrik Strömberg.
I am publishing these with Reetta's kind permission.

Near Dark

If I had the hair to match, I would prefer to look like Lux Interior or Severen from Near Dark.

Except I did these r-e-a-l slow, just to see if it looks any better or not.
The girl on the right is a main character from my upcoming graphic novel, DMoleyk.


Sometimes I feel like that no matter how hard I try, my skills just won't develop.
Sometimes I fear that I may be too old (38) to really get any better. Still, I keep trying.

When I was younger (23), I felt that my drawing was effortless.
But this might have been for the fact that I did not yet understand much about drawing.
The joke is that more you know, the more you see your own limitations.

Biggest irony is that I can only make satisfying drawings if I do them real fast,
with no sketching whatsoever. If I try to put some real effort into pictures, they just look worse.

Ps. I finally took my time to figure out how to add links. Check them out!

If I could draw..

If I could draw, I would weave the tapestries of my mind;
Secrets of my soul, depths of my heart;
into visions from other worlds,
sights of the unknown,
to be seen, but not understood,
left for world to see, as a reflection of something
that lurks underneath of our reality.

But I can not draw, so I will, simply, just draw.

More practice

The lack of updates is due to fact that everything I have been drawing, every day, has been associated with my forthcoming graphic novel, and would contain heavy spoilers if I published them.

This is also a character from my graphic novel, but showing her wont spoil the story. (But I must stress that her appearance is very much work-in-progress)

Something again

Did this while listening to music. Did not sketch, straight with brush.
So there may be some errors. I don't care.

I doodled this during a meeting today. It felt great. I should always draw stuff in a meeting, it helps me to concentrate.

need new brush..

Looks like my brush has decided to dry up. It's probably sulking because I did not use it for 13 months. My apologies, brush. I will buy new one tomorrow and throw you away.
