Satan's birds

(Inspired by Electric Wizard)

Satan's birds, this is it,
Quacking under
shadow of the pentagram

Point your feathers
to your infernal master
Raise your beaks now you exist
As Satan's birds, as Satan's birds!

..and the blog must go on

I was not going to doodle anything, but I did. None of these mean anything, except what I've typed below the images.

Damn Romeo!!


 At the wits end.

 .."and then the hammer came down, and it did not make a sound"

"Does death come alone, or with eager reinforcements?"

Doodles for the troubled brow.

"Do I look like I want to comment..??"

New book in print

I just finished my 244-page (fictitious) graphic novel about my game industry experiences.
It looks very crude, but should be to the point. For some reason, it seems to be also quite eagerly anticipated.

And now, I'm tired. Drawing 100 pages in 5 weeks may be the cause. Anyway, here is the cover.

Doodle from Ralph Bakshi

I'm not very big on collecting original artwork / autographs, but somehow during the years some pieces have tumbled themselves on my hands; such as autographed book from Ray Bradbury and Alan Lee, autographs from actresses of Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill! and some other stuff.

Today I got my original doodle from Ralph Bakshi, because I backed his animation project 'Last days of Coney Island' in Kickstarter. As a reward I got original doodle from him (on the right, the pic on the left is sticker)

So yeah, kinda neat :-)

If there is a geek treasure I would REALLY want it would be a copy an uncut VHS workprint of Black Cauldron..

Frosty

This is an illustration for the song "Frosty" by Legendary Pink Dots.
When I first heard it, I "saw" this comic in my head immediately and wanted to do it for great many years.
I did it year ago and forgot about it again. Maybe it's time to post it.

Listen to the song while you read!
..and click the images to enlarge them

Too much death

Two weeks ago I heard that my old friend had passed away, then yesterday I heard that my favourite novelist has a cancer and few months to live, today I read that my favourite film critic has kicked the bucket.

I know there's not much we can do about death, but right now I am starting to feel rather bummed out.

Tampere kuplii #3: Post-tampere stress disorder

After the festival, it is nice to actually sit down and reflect on all the strange and wonderful happenings, and feelings attached to the things that you went through but had no time yet to think about.

Tampere kuplii #2: a very bad duck

When I was selling my books at festival area, I doodled this to thwart off some boredom.
They call him MR.duck!

Tampere kuplii #1: pub comic

Last weekend was Tampere Kuplii-festival where I met all kinds of weird and brilliant people.

I did this "superhero comic" with very talented artist Emmi Nieminen (Emmi: panels 1, 3; me: panel 2)..Beer of course had nothing to do with this..
Translation:
panel 2: "Hulk catches!!"
panel 3: "Hulk munches!!"

From the scrapbook

Because working on this stupid job is slowly killing me, I had to force myself to draw these. Last of the pics below was done last week, but I was so bored with it that I didn't bother to scan it first, and I was going to destroy it. Today I have absolutely nothing to do at the office, so what the hell. I guess I can include the failed one as well, to show that I'm just a human.



This was almost ok, but I lost interest before I was able to finish it

This was fun to draw at first, but then I screwed up the proportions and lost interest

I have no idea why I had done something as generic and boring as a gag based on bird poop.
Maybe because I was so bored. Or because I like birds. I actually enjoyed drawing this more than looking at it. But I'll share it, just to punish you.
