Some Finnish action taking place in Belgium during upcoming couple of weeks. Hope to meet you in Grafixx (Antwerp) next weekend. I’ll be there along Roope & Amanda with piles of Kutikuti titles, prints and something more. There’s a speech on Sunday (5pm) I’ll give on Huuda Huuda and also Kutikuti – how we’ve done it, why and when it’s time to quit.

A thing not to miss is Keijut gig in Bozar on 23rd (Brussels) along Makino Takashi & Rei Hayama… there’s also a ‘Finnish Invasion’ on 26th in Het Bos (Antwerp)… and if that’s not enough go see&hear the old chap Jan from our studio along Tarzana (Anderzén, Spencer Clark, Floris Vanhoof) – same spot on 4th of December.

That’s the last trip for this year. Phew. Upcoming: a brand new book for 2016! Stay tuned, kids!

Finally! We guided The Book of Hope through some printing problems safely to the harbour of COMIC ARTS BROOKLYN! So read this is an invitation to the release of the graphic novel. I’ll be signing the book at CAB on Saturday 7.11. 3–4 pm at the Fantagraphics booth (U3–4). Along this there’s a Kutikuti booth (next to excellent Latvian kuš! table!) with books & prints from me and other Finns. So, pop by to say hi & buy some stuff so I don’t have to carry it back to Finland. Anyway, thanks to Eric & FB for making my book happen – excited to have it finally out!

While in New York, feel free to join also The New York Comics & Picture-story Symposium on 5.11. at 7 pm (Parsons The New School, 2 West 13th Street). Tom Oldham from Breakdown Press, David Schilter from kuš!, Patrick Crotty from PEOW! studio and I will be speaking & showing images under theme ‘Comics on the Northern Edge of Europe’. The conversation is moderated by Bill Kartopolous & Ben Katchor. That’s for free, the event.

See you soon!

… my CRAZY one and half month period of exhibitions and festivals and some more exhibitions is about to end with yet three more. The image above is of a 3D installation with video & sounds made for 6th Triennal of Pirkanmaa that’s open in Tampere (Finland) 12.9.–15.10. Meanwhile The Book of Hope -based exhibition is already open in Raahe (Finland) at The Raahe Book Fair where I’ll be travelling as well. And as that’s not all, bit later there’ll be Tabulaland’s one year anniversary exhibition opening in Kanneltalo, Helsinki. That’s with theme ‘Music’ so this version of Oxygene’s cover fit in very well. Anyway, after this something completely different: I shall start to draw a book!


New stuff: Snake in the Nose & Vortex!

The Helsinki 30th Comics Festival is just about to begin and my contribution is two small new releases. Snake in the Nose is a 24-page free flow comic published by the great people of kuš! in Latvia. It’s supposed to be some sort of humour. I tried to draw it like Scooby Doo but failed. Just see yourself.


The other publication is a new offset printed version of Vortex that Thaumatropical released as a 50 pcs edition last year. It’s slightly modified version, 32 pages of drawings mostly from one sketchbook. Coloured later. You can buy these both from me – package deal for 10 euros including shipping to any place on earth.

Kutikuti 10 years!

Time seems to have gone quite fast as Kutikuti’s 10th anniversary exhibition TEMPORA MUTANTUR is having its premier next week. Welcome to the opening on 19th of August 18–20 in Huuto Gallery (Uudenmaankatu, Helsinki). I must say I’m pretty proud of this show that presents all new work from 40 Finnish contemporary comic artists. All comics, all big size, all colourful silkscreen prints. The exhibition is part of The 30th Helsinki Comics Festival and will of course be open during the actual festival as well. Together with the exhibition we’re also launching a big sized anthology with the same name as the exhibition – limited edition of 500 pcs.  You may find some previews of the works from the event page in Facebook. PS. Those of you who won’t make it to Helsinki please note that we’ll most likely have a small tour around the world with the exhibition later next year…
