The Last Book of Hope

The past months I’ve been working most of the time with the fifth and last book in The Books of Hope series. This 48-page work is out in Finnish due The 28th Helsinki Comics Festival held early September, hopefully following with the French and English editions later. The title is plain and simple ‘The Last Book of Hope’. It’s been ca. 8 years that I’ve been working with this serie so it’s about the time to get it to its end and move on to some new things… which I’m pretty excited about. Anyway, just realized the whole serie contains ca. 1 300 images which is a lot considering I’m slow as a snail. It’s been a taughtful thing to do and shown I can even learn something, both in storytelling and drawing. Still, I’m kind of waiting for the exact moment when the book is out and I can just put all this stuff in a big folder and forget it for the next thirty years.

Happy graduation!

Just a short note for people being in ICAF or Portland (Oregon) in general during 23.-25.5. Critic & editor Ville Hänninen and I will have a talk on Finnish comics and something completely different on Thursday 23th. That’ll take place in Floating World Comics which I’m excited to visit, since Jason has been selling stuff from Kutikuti for a long time already. Small exhibition as well. Oh yes, that’ll happen from 6.30 to 9.00 pm. Welcome!
