Once upon a time...

My artist progress (or lack of progress?) meme that I’ve been sitting on for years, but decided to finally post. So enjoy my doodles since times immemorial to this latest, pretty busy year I’ve had :’D Once even this old gutter witch was smål. Those were dark times: no internet, no manga, no noodles & tofu in grocery stores.
And I won’t even start about the fact that Mitral & Nargwhanal turned 14 this year, it makes me dizzy ●.◉

And thank you everyone for this year, let’s hope next one will be kinder to us all. I myself am a bit frustrated at how little I managed to do artwise this year, but I’m hoping next one will be easier. I am adult now and all, no more thesises to write 。+゚.。+。(´ω`*)♪♪

So it is Christmas

Zine christmas market thing
Just a tiny darling of a note; I ended up getting a table at the Finnish Comics Society’s Christmas Zine sale Saturday 15th of December with Rikkisu & Metalmiku! If you’re around, please do come say hi 🖤 The event is held in the Comics Centre (Porthaninkatu 9, HKI)

The FB-event if that’s your thing

I had no idea there were kids involved, too xD, let’s try to keep them away from my table… I’m feeling especially sensitive about my art and less than mainstream preferences with this Tumblr shitstorm suddenly hitting us.

decided to draw something ridiculously self-indulgent as a year end gift for myself, now that I have a moment’s respite from all the teachings and whatnots. Still working on the comic too, but this piece has been burning on my head for months. Take care of yourself, my lovelies.

Naughty comic teaser

Well, I'd say this new paper passed the test, and this just might be the first panel of my future story! Please, don't get too excited just yet, though. I want to draw at least six pages of the story before I upload it online, so all of you lovelies will have a bit more to see on the first go ^^
 I will endeavour to present these pages to all of you as soon as possible, and will most certainly post more naughty teasers while I work on them~
 There's still today and tomorrow left of my sale over in Tictail and as always Redbubble is open, if you wish to support my comic making efforts!

Exciting new developments~

So, I’m actually doing a test run on some new paper for that comic, yes the one I keep talking about, and wanted to share a wip of my inking. So far so good 🖤

November commercials

Hello my darlings 。+゚*○゜☆*。*.・+★.。!
I can’t show you the mysterious wing in all its glory just yet, but instead I will shamelessly advertise my webshops! Winter solstice is coming, and I’ve uploaded a ton of new designs to my Redbubble shop, and a few new stickers onto my Tictail~
To keep things as simple as possible, if you’re interested in my comics, artbooks, stickers and A4-sized prints, please go to~

I put my art book the Heavenly Bodies & my latest comic Feather & Scale on sale until the end of this month All orders will be sent out with some nice extras, because I love you and am grateful for the support!

And if you’re interested in the shirts, dresses scarfs, tote bags, and whatnots shown in this post, you can find them in my~

Why not get yourself a festive dress of my bby darling Mitral mutilating their fair skin (without any pants on) .+(´^ω^`)+. Nothing says Merry Christmas like some blood on snow white skin ♡♡

I will also not be attending any events this year, at least not yet, so if you want some of my stuff before 2019, this is the only way :(

Return of Shiranui!

I had to skip two sessions of Rogue Trader due to working too much, and we collectively decided Shiranui, my eldar corsair, spent the time celebrating Khaine’s birthday (or maybe even his Nimipäivä). This consisted of a week of carousing, space drug abusing, mayhaps a few human sacrifices and a general lack of pants on part of all participants.
Afterwards he went and saved a fellow pirate (human) from that cute dog that everyone remembers, which turned out to be a demonspawn of Nurgle, while nursing a hangover to end all hangovers. I seriously sad about that, I really wanted that dog, and by me I mean Shiranui :'(

Shira got a spes norovirus from his troubles, but the saved pirate pal got a case of singing boils, so things could be worse 🖤 the doodle is silly, but I was so happy to finally play I wanted to share 🖤

Latetober doodle

Inktober came and went but I still wanted to try and doodle up a Nargwhanal to pair with the Mitral I made earlier (and a worried Marune)
Not super happy about how this came out but in the spirit of inktober I will upload this anyway <:D this was a strict 1 hour doodle. I ranoutoftime xD
 Aaand a bonus Homer because he is the best and I have a mighty need to post pictures of Him everywhere:

Sneak peek time again

I love drawing wings almost more than anything (you might've noticed). My latest project has me drawing a particularly excessive pair, which makes me so happy 🖤🖤🖤 More information on this secret project will be revealed soon(ish)

The Helsinki Book Fair

I will be sharing a table with the fantastic Metalmiku & Rikkisu in the Helsinki Book Fair and more specifically in the booth of Finnish Comics Society (6G2) next Sunday (the 28th)!
We’re under the collective name of Mi・Ha・Ri 🖤 Come say hi to us if you’re visiting the fair on that day! ^^ Here’s the link to the facebook event! They have a lot of stuff for each day, so it is well worth checking out!

p.s. My shop is still open and accepting orders, since I know not everyone can and will attend the fair 🖤

Early Sunday inktoberings

Mitral is so sick of waiting for me to get my shit together and start the damn comic that they might just die. I'm sorry Mitral, you deserve better you edgelord you 🖤🖤
This time I only gave myself an hour to get everything done. I'm so rusty ;^;

First inktoberings

I tried to gently slip into inktober with my favorite trees & moss. Life is finally giving me a tiny break so I can draw a little. I gave myself a strict two hour time limit with this one, and it came out pretty well :> All thanks to Homer's help, of course.
More moodsetting for my next project will be the theme for this year. Mitral will hopefully show up too

Endless Dragon Cave

Hello~~ I’m sorry for the lack of art recently, I’m teaching a course with two lectures per week and it has eaten up all of my time :( But only a few weeks left and THEN my life should be a bit more normal (I hope)
So instead of new doodles, have a video of a well over 10 metre long dragon cave drawing I did as a child 💖 I really want to do something similar again in the future, but with better art xD I've recently been (again) very inspired with emakimono picture scrolls. too

The proofs are here!

(...finally I might add)

Homer has an opinion of the quality of my art :D But anyway, I almost lost hope with getting this project out of the printers on time, August has been a bit of a challenge in every possible way. BUT now that I got the proofs, I dare to be hopeful that this project will be done in time for Zine Fest! I will keep you posted

Inspiration wall time!

 I’m waiting for proofs of my Heavenly Bodies zine, so I decided this is the perfect time to share my inspiration wall after three long years! I’m surprised that some of the stuff is still in the same place...
  There are a lot of arts by lovely Finnish artists like Rikkisu, Anayte Delahay, Ered-sama and others whose names I've forgotten ;___; the rest are just Takarazuka posters, photobombing Kaworu-kuns and my waifu for raifu Kanda Yuu from DGM.

and a bonus Homer

Haltija travels

This week there won't be any art updates since I'm travelling around in Kainuu! We visited Julma-Ölkky canyon lake and Hossa National park. The landscapes have been amazing
 Next week we will return to normal blogging and preparing for Ropecon! 

Monday, 16 July 2018

Thank you Finncon!

It was way, way too hot but otherwise an amazing con! Thank you all who visited our table, here's a few pics of my new stuff!

See you in Ropecon!

The Jackdaw Bard strikes again!

Kurama's unbelievable, amazing exploits continue! Last night this brave jackdaw-bardman saved a black dragonborn from a real cage to the amazement of a group of malnourished and abandoned lil' noblins (we gave them a new home) and was promptly almost killed (again) by an underdark horror, after which we angered a beholder (luckily over the hobnoblin-phone) and almost got our asses handed to ourselves by that same group of hobnoblins. Fun times.

AND by the way, I'll be attending Finncon (in Turku this year) as a seller next week end! If you're around, come say hi! There's no entrance fee! Hopefully I'll have lots of new stuff with me ^^
