I’m finally about to send to printers my new graphic novel ‘Simply Samuel’. That’s a sort of sequel to earlier Samuel book and you can see its Finnish cover on left. 160 pages in colour and I can say it’s kinda different from the first Samuel – more stuff, better drawn, more rich in storytelling and more mixed in general… kind of a mash-up in many ways. I’ve worked with it four years so it’s about time to get this baby out.

The book will be released fall 2016 in France (Les requins marteaux), Spain (Aristas Martinez), Germany (Reprodukt), Norway (No Comprendo Press), Portugal (MNRG), Brazil (A Bolha Editora), Sweden (Lystring), Denmark (Forlæns) and Finland (Boing Being). There shall be an English version sometime later but let’s see…

The other cover (on right) is a new one for the 1st Samuel book ‘Walking With Samuel’. That book has been sold out for quite a long time so I drew 24 pages more, fixed things here and there and made new cover & layout. This new edition will be out in France & Belgium from La 5e Couche and from the same publishers as the new book in Finland, Denmark, Spain and Portugal.

Time to do the final moves with the layout and let the books go. After that: Holiday.

The good old, great, bold, big MÄNTTÄ ART FESTIVAL (XXI) is opening upcoming weekend. Curated by Anssi Kasitonni and it’s a must-see BLAST! The show is open 12.6–31.8. (Mänttä, Finland). Did some new works for this (installation, painting, video (that’s shot & edited by Pauli Hokkanen – cheers!)), some old stuff on display as well.

KAIKUA VASTAAN /  MEETING ECHO is my small solo show in Koskenjalka Gallery (Koskitie 43‚ Korkeakoski), my childhood surroundings. The exhibition is opening on Saturday 11.6. and present drawings, comics and books until 1st of July. The gallery is open Wed-Sun 12–18.

Finally I made it to OSLO COMICS EXPO which I heard lots of good things about. We’ve just set up Kutikuti‘s 10-year anniversary exhibition Tempora Mutantur and the show is opening in few hours. Along with Heikki we’ll have a booth with piles of stuff. Free Kuti newspapers for the fastest as well!

Over & out!

Fumetto Art Book

… did this piece for the 25-years anniversary book of Swiss Fumetto festival. For some reason they decided to change the colours of it and print with full CMYK which of course made the thin lines suffer and details disappear. Anyway, here the work ‘David’s Father’ with the colours it should’ve been printed.
