Studio Pilar’s new issue of COCKTAILS is out in Italy. Featured is my 5-page story on the drink ‘Dark & Stormy’. I recommend the drink for a hot summer day and the fanzine for regular use throughout the year, day and night.

New Book

New book. Yes, released about NOW!

“The Anthology of Mind” should be available now or soon in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Poland, France and Finland. English edition coming out someday next Spring. AOM is a sort of retrospective thing collecting works from 1997–2017. It gathers short stories published mostly in small print-run fanzines and anthologies around the world. I’d say it’s 128 pages of mostly work that only a few have seen. I did reletter, recolor, draw extra, fix, cut & paste, write, glue, cry, drink gallons of coffee with this so better check it out.

Our Finnish edition entitled “Mielen antologia” will be released upcoming weekend at The Helsinki 33rd Comics Festival thanks to Zum Teufel.

So, go and support your local publisher:

Fortepressa (Italy)
Fulgencio Pimentel (Spain)
Chili Com Carne (Portugal)
La 5e Couche (France/Belgium)
Timof (Poland)
Forlaens (Denmark)
Zum Teufel (Finland)

What comes to The Helsinki 33rd Comics Festival, I’ll be there with an own booth & new stuff. Will talk about Future-project and AOM on Saturday at 5pm. More info on the festival programme.

Also Kutikuti’s semi-legenday KUTICLUB is held upcoming Friday in Bar Mascot as an opening for the festival Performing Jukka Herva & Data City, KK DJs and karaoke (!). Tickets 3€. We’ll release Kuti#49 and truly a PILE of new zines and books. Welcome!



Life of a Comic Artist

sarjakuvaelamaa.jpg

YLE (the national broadcasting company of Finland) shot through last year a documentary on contemporary Finnish comic art.

The 42-min part featuring Tiitu Takalo and me can be watched online here.

Scandinavians may turn on the Swedish subtitles from the right bottom (TXT / Översättning).

Anyway, big thanks to Olli, Erik and the rest for all the work with the serie. It’s refreshing to see ‘Sarjakuvaelämää’ (Comic Life) focus purely on the art form rather than phenomenons around it. This is also the very first time the Finnish contemporary comic art is presented in media in this scale. Big thanks again.

The whole series featuring Suvi Ermilä, Matti Hagelberg, Leo Kuikka, Hanneriina Moisseinen, Ville Pirinen, Tiitu Takalo, Marko Turunen, Emmi Valve + yours truly watchable here.

… the serie seems to be online for at least one year.



FUTURE is here!

Finally the first two issues of my new project FUTURE (that’s some weird sci-fi I suppose) are out. 28 pages in Marvel-size, full colour, all in English. Get both from me for 10 Eur / USD. That includes shipping any place on earth. The serie will be ten issues long so we gotta live with it for some time. You may pay by paypal to tommi@boingbeing.com and send me your postal address.

I’ve been working with FUTURE indeed a long time already. What’s taken time is the fact that this is the first wholesome where I’m trying to combine different styles in one book. Basicly I’ve been learning new ways of doing and now using those to illustrate the different timelines, utopias and dystopias of the book. Anyway, it’s sort of mind-tricking net of stories that you are about to dive into. Excited to have it now in public for the first time.



Survivors + pixels

‘The Survivors’ is an exhibition of mine held in Kangasala-Talo 11.10–5.11. Presenting drawings, paintings, serigraphies and books. There’s an open&free talk 18.10. starting at 17 – I’ll most likely talk a bit on my work in general and on the works presented. Open for questions as well.

Friday the 13th at 15–17 there’s a workshop at The Finnish Museum of Games with the theme of ‘pixels’. I’ll talk a bit on my own work, on pixel graphics in general and then we’ll have a look on the ‘Masters of Pixel Art’ exhibition that’s still present at the museum. The workshop is open&free as well to all, no age limits either. You may bring your own computer OR grid paper + markers OR knitting tools or whatever as pixel graphics can easily be used outside the digital world as well.
