Watched Friday the 13th. extended cut (2009). I was a big fan of the original movie series back when I was like 16 and have most of them on VHS tape (they have made a total of 11 films plus this new one if I remember it correctly). Jason Voorhees is more iconic than Michael Myers; the hockey mask really does the job. And yes; I still have something like 300 VHS tapes I never carried to dumpster.

HELLsinki freezes over

Not Siberia. Helsinki this evening. We have more snow than anywhere in Finland. Used to be the other way round. Over 50 cm. at this moment. Over 70 car crashes today.

Undead Girlie

Testing some new techniques. I used a lot more collage here with this little girl.

This fella here is originally a tattoo I designed few weeks ago. But I took the image a little further since I wanted to test some colors the new Deadworld series in my mind...

Chaos AD.

Finished part eight of The Pacific -tv series and took a look at my desk. And the first thing that comes to my mind is the battlefields of Iwo Jima. Will finish my cup of coffee now and start filling more of them papers. But I will not clean the desk. No. I will end up living amongst my scribbles in a mad scientist way.

Deadworld Omnibus

IDW and Desperado are releasing the DEADWORLD OMNIBUS for January release. It collects Requiem for the World (Image) and Frozen Over and Slaughterhouse (which was only in hardcover)...264 pages for only $19.99. This is where Deadworld was sort of rebooted so fans could join right in and not have to deal with the 50 previous issues of continuity. Diamond order #NOV10400...make sure you tell your store you want a copy so they'll be sure to order it. Also, here is an interview Gary Reed did that discusses it a bit more.

Got this great waste pipe cleaning powder from friend of mine. I think with 20 cans of them you could dispose a body. For professional use only!

The world is dead

Another page from the Deadworld graphic novel I`m very much trying to illustrate in the middle of this chaos and pressing. But I`m enjoying it. The biker Tony has got himself to a situation not so nice.

Older scifi

They started to broadcast the new V -tv series here yesterday. And as I very much guessed it, the series seems to be crappier than the old one. Very much the same way than The original Battlestar Galactica vs. the new one. hope it will get better later; I`m still going to see the next episode.

Well here we go. An image of Cylons I did a long time ago. I modified it a bit though (and no the older version was not better).

ex-biker with Harley motor tattooed to his belly.

Desk today

My desk today. Some Hatter drawings and a cup
of coffee. Lot`s of more drawings at the left
corner. And the red thing is ink made in China. 
Smells like shit.

is now available.

Deadworld doodle

King Zombie and Bowker ready to color.
The harsh and violent Deadworld and softer fantasy
world of Hatter M. is actually very functional
compination for me. When you draw both of
them at the same time they kinda support
each other in terms of drawing technique and
my imagination.
