I’m back with unspeakable horrors! (Click to enlarge)
When I was 8, I drew a very disturbing dog family, and this is a remake in my current style. I basically haven’t drawn in a year, and this was fun ^^

The house is based on the hut where my great-grandmother grew up with her many sisters and brothers. The father was a shoemaker and alcoholic, and most (if not all) kids moved to the city to work in the factories before they were even teenagers, if I remember correctly.

Details, and their partly updated names to fit the Finnish rural horror setting:

Musti (Mother, 43 y.), Noska (15 y.)

Katariina (16 y.), Nosko (20 y.)

Kielis (13 y.), Vihris (17 y.)

Vinos (12 y.), Neni (15 y.) – I don’t know if I did it on purpose when I was 8, but apparently Noska and Neni are twins.

Vihris (17 y.), Viia (20 y.)

Nosne (Father, 44 y.)

The original drawings, that I drew with crayons on the back of my mum’s bank statements in 1989, when I was 8 years old:

OG fans will remember I posted them here already back in 2011 ^^


Yet another exciting February 1st in my life! At least the soundtrack is banging V^(oo)^V

Reconstruction in progress …

I had to move to a new host after the website went offline for an unknown reason, and my old web host simply did not respond.

Since I wasn’t planning on it and didn’t have proper backups to work with, I’m having some issues with setting it up at the new host.
The worst thing is that the comicpress pages aren’t working (Dog Island and Driftwood) – the navigation is completely fucked and I have not found a solution yet.
Could it really be that the easiest solution is to rebuild the entire sites from scratch … T^T

Stay tuned I guess V`(oo)´;V


I figured it out, but not before I re-uploaded every single one of the Dog Island pages haha …
The navigation/connection between the comic posts in Comicpress (or WordPress) was lost somewhere in the migration, so the navigation wasn’t working and the “next” and “previous” buttons were gone.
But it turns out all I have to do is re-categorize the posts.
1. Rename the old categories (also rename the slugs/shorthands) under “Posts -> Categories” in WordPress
2. Create new categories under “Comicpress -> Storyline structure”, using the names of the categories you want to have (i.e. the old names, or better ones)
3. Go through all 408 posts and change the category to the new ones I just created – et voilà, the navigation is back and working!
4. Delete the old broken categories (if you want – on my sites they don’t get displayed anyway if they have no posts)


In a new record for me, I did a total of three (3) posts for Inktober 2022! I was going to do more, but stuff and thangs happened. V`(oo)´V

Coral necklaces (real and fake) used to be a thing in the 80s. I mixed it up with several different prompt lists again for this year’s Inktober, and this one was for #facetober day 1: “coral, red hair, sunglasses” – which of course made me think of Eva
Again with just the  lineart:

Orion as I saw it (him?!) at night in Galičica National Park in Macedonia, with zero light pollution. It blew my mind! There is literally the outline of his face and bow. The temperatures dropped below zero and we weren’t really prepared for that, but this was absolutely worth it.
This one was for #artober by thainaaraujoe, day 2: “pick a constellation”

Then, finally, #facetober day 9: “royal, curly hair, blooms”
Shannon (from Driftwood and Dog Island) may be the closest of my main characters to any sort of royalty (some kind of pirate royalty!), has curly hair, and is sitting in front of some tiger lilies :3
Maybe I should have been arsed at some point to connect my drawing tablet for the colouring, instead of doing it with my mouse like it’s 2001 …
And just the lineart:

Well, I’d planned on doing all the main characters from Driftwood/Dog Island like this, but it didn’t happen this time … Maybe next October I’ll draw more :3 (It’ll be hard not to beat ’22 for sure xD)


Yet another uneventful February 1st for me, and on top of that I was feeling really tired and unmotivated … Maybe next year I should plan something special for Hourly Comic Day. :3
