Do you agree to the terms and conditions of this rental contract? / (Work space. 62,50€ per month. Deposit: 145€.) / No. No. No! It’s too expensive! No!! / Yes. // You can’t afford to keep it up for twelve whole months! Käänny takas! Käänny takaaaaaaas!!! / Bye now! / (”Bye” but in Tampere dialect which I loathe and despise) //

Well! Now that I have to pay myself sick for the work space I think I might just actually go and work there every once in a while. / But I still gotta wait another full week before the Hyhky basement locker will start paying herself back, because… // OULU COMIC FESTIVAL is here again! As am I! Hi Oulu! I missed you <3 / (”I missed you too. Will you come and hug me?” but in Oulu dialect which I love and adore) / No. / Ok.

I have a hairy mole. / (There.) // Pinocchio had Jiminy Cricket. // Do it, Nixu. Kill them all. / I have this. / His name is Herbert the Spider. / My good conscience is on vacation. Moido.

At the bottom of the couch I wait for unemployment benefits. At the bottom of the couch I wait for death. I wonder if I’m at risk of socio-economical exclusion.

141117-oralabora (3)

Hyhky workroom, forenoon. / Focus. / (Self-flagellations.)

141117-oralabora (4)

I love my workroom.  / Basement floor. No internet, no windows. My concentration is at its best! // The commute sucks tho, bike and morning frost and everything. / Another uphill! Poik mää kuale!

141117-oralabora (5)

Besides, I was in Pispala ridge the day before too so I didn’t feel like biking today. / Anarchist Black Cross Tampere prisoner support meal, seitan stew, comrades, and LGBT fundraiser hangover. // The party wasn’t too exciting but at least I tested the waters after eight years of not attending this particular party. / See you again in another eight years.

Being unemployed is boring but getting a job doesn’t sound too titillating either. (Don’t tell that to my potential employers.) / Well what do you want to do, right now? / Go to bed. Make dinner. Write a zine. Produce dopamine and adrenaline. Pick at the scab in my elbow. Something useful and rewarding. / I guess a bike trip or a jumpstart to my bloodsugar would put my brain noodles to work. Sitting, alcohol and internet has deflated me completely.

Monday blues is the result of capitalist brainwashing. I will decide that it’s a day for rest now.

141117-oralabora (8)

Home? Car? Family? Husband? Traveling? Property? What? / Alien world, alienation. / I don’t even know what I would use money for should I have it. This is everything I’ve ever done, ever felt. (What’s your dream job?) I don’t understand the question.

Haisuli. Tussi paperille, 2017.

Moikkelis koikkelis! Olen tuskaillut sarjakuva-albumin, apurahahakemuksien, Inktoberin (rip, nippanappa yli puolet jaksoin tehä) ja perintään menneiden laskujen kanssa niin on jäänyt vähän bloggailu vähemmälle. Lisäksi kuvapäivis tosiaan täyttyi enkä oo saanu ostettua uutta – kymppi on iso raha jos toisessa päässä diiliä on viikon ruoat!

Oli miten oli, tässä satunnaisia piirustuksia jotka eivät ihan kelvanneet omiksi päivityksikseen tässä kesän, syksyn aikana. Bye! Ostakaa multa tilaustöitä! Ja pidelkää peukkuja että saan apurahaa!

All the boys hate me. This will be my life forever. / Fag. / Fag. / Fag. // I’m not explicitly hostile towards you. / This is new and rewarding! I will now develop maddeningly pubescent puppy feelings for you! // I am openly friendly towards you. I’m also jokseenkin cute. / I wish I knew how to relate to men in a normal way.

The Pride flag was invented by people. Go ahead and add more stripes. Sopu sijaa antaa! / (* Doesn’t include Straight Pride.) / Keep nationalism out of Pride too. / Kuka tarvii kansallislippuja? En mää ainakaan! (Pohdintaa mustan ja ruskean raidan lisäämisestä sateenkaarilippuun solidaarisuudenosoituksena rodullistetuille, erit. mustille ja latinalaisamerikkalaisille HLBTQ-ihmisille jotka sysäsivät liikkeelle nykymuotoisen länsimaisen Pride-liikkeen Stonewallin mellakoissa v. 1969 ja joita edelleen syrjitään kaikin tavoin niin valtaväestön kuin HLBTQ-yhteisön puolelta. / Ruminations about adding the black and brown stripes to the rainbow flag in solidarity with racialized [specifically Black and Latin@] LGBTQ individuals who started the modern Pride movement in Stonewall riots of 1969 and who are still marginalized by both the LGBTQ community and the mainstream [white cishets in power].)

Mua jotenkin epäilyttää julkaista tää kuvitus??? Vaikka siinä on natsipariskunta esitetty naurettavassa ja epäsuotuisassa valossa (ja tungin vielä varmuuden vuoksi FUCK NAZIS NATSIT VITTUUN-vesileiman overlay-filtteriksi :D) niin onhan ne silti vähän symppiksiä eläinhahmoja. Mutta ehkä mun nyt pitää vaan luottaa että useimpien ihmisten mielikuvissa sika on tyhmä ja likainen eläin…

Tässä vielä vaitonainen kohtaaminen nasuparin kanssa:

190917-rulez2

(Central Square.) / Oooh, look at that voima-asetelman vakiinnuttaminen. / (A nazi and his girlfriend, walking into red lights.) / (Me on a new bike waiting for green lights, not wanting to fall over in front of a car.) // (Kaleva district.) (A narrow walkway.) // Does this look like a bike lane to you?! // Not all the rules are meant to or worth breaking. / (Car lane.) / Anarchism is about making room for EVERYONE. (Except nazis.)

Now that my room is liveable I can finally report on Helsinki Comics Festival! But first… // H-P Lehkonen paid my deposit! <3 / (2000€ per month salary in comics industry.) / You can pay back whenever, no rush. / Thank you! / (Unemployed bum.)

110917-helskuta (2)

SO YEAH, HKI. / (Several kilos of Pokuto comics.) / Thank God that was my last Oulu-Helsinki busride! / (Nine hours in a cheap bus.) // I missed Broken Minds exhibition because I really needed to rest after my trip. Next year I’ll be more awake: there’s a regional train from Tampere to Helsinki! / I didn’t buy any of my friends’ zines! I’m such a bad friend!

110917-helskuta (3)

It’s always nice to see my friends and colleagues in Helsinki Comics Festival. It’s such an empowering feeling like ”You got this dude, you’re a good comic artist and if you work hard you will make great things.” / (Jiipu won in Best Comic Blog category!) / (I was too shy to talk to Sophie Labelle.)

110917-helskuta (4)

Nothing much to say about moving to Tampere. Packing the car, 6-hour trip in the car, unpacking the car, all went smoothly. My room is all decorated and everything. / I only needed to pack my clothes, books, and electronics; the house has its own furniture in place.) / I’ll talk about adjusting to my new life in Tampere as soon as I get to it. For the time being, I’ll wait for employment center benefits so I’ll get a bike or a bus card. Bye! (Tampere dialect is not my favourite thing in the world and it’s getting kind of old to imitate it whenever you hear somebody lives there.)
