A visit to Helvetinkolu

Hello! I recently visited Helventinkolu National Park and completely forgot to share my vacation pictures with you! My sister who lives abroad is visiting Finland, so we had to make a ruska-trip even though I've been way too busy for my own good. A day of hiking  in the woods really helped with that!

Busy busy busy



Page 17 has been slow going, and I’m sorry ;’( September decided to be uncooperative to put it nicely and I’ve had very little time for drawing 。゚(゚´ω`゚)゚。 but I’m trying my best to get you the page before the end of the month!
Even if I wish I could be like Homer and just #zzz to the end of days

Thank you Zine Fest!

 Thank you Sarjisfestarit, Zine Fest, everyone who visited our table and especially my magnificent table buddies Yölamppu & Rikkisu for an amazing weekend 🖤🖤🖤

Homer, on the other hand, had a pretty shitty weekend, but now everything is ok again. zzz


Next I will be attending Pakanalliset Syysmessut in Argoksenmäen Holvikellari, Helsinki on Sunday the 13th of October!

And hopefully there will be another comic page coming your way soon!

Zine Fest!



Hello, and apologies for my silence, August turned out to be a real adventure. And by adventure I mean busy as hell, leaving me with very little time to draw :(
 I hope soon this will be over and I'll be able to continue Paths of Avarnight updates!

But before that, we will be in Zine Fest of Sarjakuvafestivaalit this weekend! Please come say hi if you're there too ^^


I did also have a tiny bit of free time to go on a small adventure to Raasepori castle! It was small and cute, and I'm happy I finally got to see it ^^


EDIT: I only now noticed that I had completely forgotten to post the link to the latest page to Paths of Avarnight here! Oh no :(

Kave!

Here's a Kave I painted for the second Youkai exhibition / doujinshi ^^ K ave is a being who cuts away at the moon to make it narrower, the name is an allusion to the word narrow in Finnish, which is kapea.
I had a really good time with this, might want to do more of these later, too 🖤
16th page is also coming along nicely, too bad I won't have time to work on it for the rest of the week xD I love my life!

Painted with watercolour, ink and a bit of white acrylic.

Thank you Ropecon & Sweet Dreams!

Hello my lovelies! My art booklet Kauniita unia - Sweet Dreams is finally done and published! Here's a few sample images:




Ropecon was the premiere for this new booklet and here's a few pics from there!



Thank you everyone who visited our table! We had an amazing weekend and it was not only due to the ventilation in Messukeskus (though it helped xD)
 Next I will re-setup a webshop to sell the Sweet Dreams booklet! Stay tuned!

”Oi, this is not the next page of Paths of Avarnight?!”
 ”Shhhhh, I’ll just paint this tiny little thing real quick...”

14th page - into the dark we go

Despite everything, I managed to finish another page, and FINALLY we get some pointy ears! I had to live without them for like... 10 pages or something, whew.

Read the latest page here

p.s. I will have something exciting to share with you all for Ropecon, soon~~~

Who's this??


 I’m finally back at my drawing desk after what was probably the busiest week of my summer (I hope), next page will be done rather soon (I hope) and you will find out who this stranger is ;D Homer would rather have me #napping

Unlucky 13



It only took me forever, but the 13th page of Paths of Avarnight is finally up!

Read it here

 I'm afraid my pace will probably be a bit slow for the rest of the summer, too, I always keep thinking soon my life will be easier and I'll have time to draw more, but it just never happens xD Nevertheless, I will keep on doing my best (ง •̀ω•́)ง✧

Sneak peeks of sneaky bonuses


Some blood soaked high heels and tons of hair aka. All the good stuff Aka. the evil, little bonus I drew for my upcoming art booklet is nigh done, and it looks like the whole  thing will actually be finished by Ropecon ^^ stay tuned for more info 🖤

ps. page 13 of Paths of Avarnight also, finally, almost done!

Sunday, 16 June 2019

Hello?








Sorry for dropping off the face of the Earth for a bit there… I think my seven years in the university (while wroking and doing art) and another teaching, working and trying to art finally caught up with me and I’ve spent majority of my June sleeping xD and taking care of this monster kitty boy, who is ever so eager to help whenever I’ve actually tried to draw xD
 I’m currently working on a secret bonus pic that will be a part of an art booklet I hope to finish by Ropecon and drawing the 13th page of Paths with a veritably glacial pace. I hope you can forgive me for being slow for a bit, I’ve never felt this old 🖤

Importent work






I’m having a survey of my old sketch books for important reasons, but Homer is having none of that shit >:| well, at least he has a chair from which he can screm at me, diss me and eventually handily step unto my lap 💕

Yet another page this way comes

12th page is up!

As I wrote in the comment for this page, my pace will probably slow down a bit for a while since I need to divide my attention to a few other artsy things for a bit! More info hopefully soon 🖤

Monday, 13 May 2019

Comic updated!

This time two pages instead of just one, for somethings are too big to fit on a single page~
Read the next pages here

Or start from the beginning
Whew, I had a good time fighting with this spread, now let’s see how long it takes me to manage the next page x’D

8th page!




After two whole pages of dialogue, it is time to get some action, aka. read the 8th page of Paths of Avarnight!

Or if you’ve yet to read the comic at all, you can begin here

May is also officially the beginning of my summer vacation, which means I only have one job instead of many xD I hope it might help quicken the pace a bit too, but I also have a few other projects I want to work on… Nothing is ever easy :’D

7th page

The seventh page has finally arrived! Read it here!

I'm sorry for being so slow recently, I do wish fervently May will be easier on my schedule wise ^^'

Friday, 19 April 2019

Progress

Despite the best efforts of a certain Hinder-Homer, the seventh page is on its way! Expect it to pop up after easter!
 Well, I'll write another blog entry when it happens anyway xD

Wednesday, 10 April 2019

6th page


This took a bit and I'm afraid the next one will too as there's Easter to deal with. Not that I really care much about Easter, but it is a long holiday, which means social obligations. I'll do my best to be prompt with the next page too!

Thank you Kauhucon!


Kauhucon came and went, and I had a blast! Thank you everyone who visited my table, it was nice meeting new and old friends ^^
 From here on I will not be attending any cons for a while, instead I will focus on the comic and getting myself in a good rhythm in making it!
See you in Ropecon!

Interview!

Hello my lovely followers~
Recently I was interviewed for a Spanish online magazine about my work, but due to flus and that weekend when Facebook went crazy I haven't been able to post this link until today!

Read the full interview here~

Unfortunately, the interview is in Spanish, but google translate did a pretty okay job in translating the whole thing into English, so if you're interested in my artistic background, my working process and the thoughts that lie behind my art, please have a read~

Fifth page is also coming along nicely 🖤

Avarnight is launched & Thank you Tampere!

 Great news my lovely followers! My webcomic project has officially been started and first pages are already online! Welcome to Paths of Avarnight!

 
Here's a few teaser sneak previews~ But please do read the actualy thing, too :D I appreciate all comments, questions and the like, so if you have any please don't hesitate to message & comment ^^



Thank you so much Tampere kuplii and everyone who I met and and visited our table! I had an amazing time, and have now safely returned home.
Homer was pretty mad at me for cashing in on his poetic sorrow, for about 5.6 minutes, but he got over it 🖤💖


Next up Kauhucon in the beginning of April! See you there ^^

Comic updates



Greetings from the comic lair! I caught a hideous cold, which has hindered my progress a bit, but I’m sure we will see at least a little something at Tampere Kuplii 2019
 I will be there the whole weekend this time and can be found on table number 5 ^^
Homer has luckily been there for me throughout this trying time, mainly sleeping on top of me.
