Get some dead fish on your walls this Xmas...

So. I made it to Neil's journal. If you like dead fish, you can buy the poster here (and while you're at it, go read the backround story and a slightly weird interview of me)

Catch and release...

"No. Don't do it. You'll just screw it up."

That was my first thought when Cat told me the story behind Neil Gaiman's poem Conjunctions. I realized that I had something very personal... something very emotional in my sticky little fingers. No, monsters... no light jokes... no easy way out.

That was friday, March 12th, 2010.

So, almost two years and at least three missed dead-lines (one marriage, one birthday and one christmas) later, the Conjunctions poster is done.

Now it's YOUR turn to decide whether I screwed up, or not.

Old friend...

He's not back... the truth is that he never left, not really. Things just got in the way.

I'll make no promises. But you can be sure I'm not done with him.

I like him too much to abandon him like that.

Byproducts of life...

Yes, it's been awhile... AGAIN. It seems I'm nowadays capable of updating my blog about 2-3 times a year. Biological network requires so much time that social network is left with few minutes here and there.

Saw Lars von Triers Melancholia last weekend and I must say I'm puzzled by the movie. If you would've asked me halfway through the film what I thought about it, I would probably said it's one of the most boring films I've EVER seen and the camera work made my head hurt... but if you would've asked the same thing after the movie, I would've said I'm not sure. And I'm still not sure what I think about it. But I DO know it gets pretty intense towards the end and the ending in itself is bloody AWESOME (I nearly pissed myself during the final scene)... and it lingered in my brain long after I left the theater with my wife.

Right. And here's a portrait of Amanda Palmer I just happened to do last week. The illustration was a byproduct of something else I'm doing right now and I thought it turned out pretty ok.

That's all for now folks.

Arigato gozaimasu.

Something to share...

Nearly pissed myself laughing when I saw this the first time (although it was more puzzling than funny when it really happened...)

This is a really cool piece of comic from the evilly clever and cleverly evil ninja-librarian Meredith Cobb. I'm the dude on the right with a ponytail and a goatee. And yes, it is (LOOSELY) based on something that actually happened at the House on the Rock event.

Making a point...

Disappointed in this so-called western civilization... again. I usually don't comment about wars or stuff happening in global politics because I'm just one of the little people and I really don't think my opinion changes anything, but this time I must make an exception. Bin-Laden's dead. That was inevitable (that's what you usually get when you plan something that kills thousands of innocent people). But the thing that bothers me isn't his death, but the reports of people celebrating his death in America and in Europe.

That is bloody disgusting. That's fucking caveman shit. Personally I wouldn't celebrate anyone's death... no matter who they were or what they had done.

Bin-Laden's death may be considered justice taking place, but it doesn't bring back anyone who died in the 9-11 attacks or make the pain go away for those who lost their loved ones... and most importantly it doesn't solve any problems.

Oh, and another thing. Bin-Laden wasn't an operative leader of the terrorists, so his killing doesn't prevent ANY terrorist attacks... it just makes him a martyr in the eyes of the fundamentalists.

So let's just raise toasts and wave those bloody flags... because the war will continue.

Beginnings part 2...

Continuing the "Beginnings" project. Here's page 2.

Again, first the sketch...

...and the colored one.


tiistai 22. helmikuuta 2011


In a desperate attempt to revitalize my creativity I've decided to start a project I call "Beginnings".

I will explain the idea behind all this bit later, but right now... here's part one of the "Beginnings". Hope you like it.

Here's the sketch...

And here's the colored piece...

Happy "Oh, shit! It was YESTERDAY!" -day

Back from the land of the non-line to post a little piece I did some time ago to a friend.
