Sorry for no updates for long time. That’s mainly because Tiina and I went to travel for +2 months, to Milan, Marseille, Rome and countryside in Finland. Meanwhile couple of new releases got out:

Adios III (black cover below) is an anthology edited by Konsta. It’s drawings and photography, 8 artists from Finland + Germes Crew, 200 pages in colours. Here’s a sample.

Speed gun is one reason why went to Marseille. It’s silkscreened book (cover above, I forgot the title from the cover, sorry (again)) by Le Dernier Cri, 32 pages in 2-4 colours, A4, 200 pcs made. I never had so much experience on silkscreening so it was exciting to see how it came out. Now I want to do more. Anyway, we’ve been setting up a real silkscreening studio with Kutikuti and I hope we can start printing in couple of months. Hmm, what else? Yes, there’s a slide show of the book by DC here. There are some images (click the image) in the publications area.

Both these books consist of images drawn during Spring 2010. I haven’t really drawn any comics since last August, when the book of Samuel got ready. Think I needed a break to do something else, which lead to a BIG pile of drawings, lots of tests etc. Moved to another city also. Anyway, I’ve just started to work again on The Fourth Book of Hope, second last in the series. That should be out in Finnish next Spring. It seems to come out quite easily at the moment. The break I’ve had from it did good. It’s pretty much more positive, enlightening book and I promise to present THIRD character! That’s something. Meanwhile I’m trying to push the publishers to do French and English editions of the 3rd book.

What comes to holiday, we’ve been pushing together lots of new releases under Kutikuti and Huuda Huuda. There’ll be ten (10) books in total + new issue of Kuti. All these out 9.9. when The 25th Helsinki Comics Festival starts. New books from Benjamin Bergman, Roope Eronen, Emelie Östergren and Läjä Äijälä + translations in Finnish from Kolbeinn Karlsson, Rui Tenreiro, Bendik Kaltenborn, Kamagurka & Seele, Ruppert & Mulot and yet a collection of great Finnish anthology Esteban. If you want to know more about these, it’s best to join Kutikuti’s mailing list. Just do it by e-mail.
