Styksin nimeen!

IN THE NAME OF STYX!

”I participated a larp where the theme was Greek gods. I was playing Hermes, the messenger of gods …who is also a thief, gambler and a general trouble-maker.” //
”Now you screwed up, Hermes. As a punishment, I will confiscate your sandals!” ”But Apolloo-oon! I haven’t done anything! It’s so unfaaa-aare!” ”The sandals, Hermes!” ”Oh thank you, these winged sandals are really uncomfortable!”

”Yawn!” //
”But… your bowl is still full of food!” //

FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME

A note for my non-Finnish readers: if you feel like this comic makes no sense it’s because my mom and I are making fun of Finnish politics here.

”…and that’s what Andy Warhol said, too: everyone gets their fifteen minutes of fame.” ”It doesn’t work like that. I mean, there are 94 quarters of an hour in 24 hours and there are so many people in the world…” //
”…that there’s no way everyone is going to get their own fifteen minutes.” ”Hmm…” //
”Of course no one gets their own private fifteen minutes but there’d be several famous people for every given quarter.” ”I don’t want to share my fifteen minutes!” //
”It could be regional. Let’s divide the world into sections, and on each section there’s one famous person for every fifteen minutes.” ”We-ell…” //
”We could divide Finland into eighteen fame districts, too!” //
”But I think people should have the right to decide which area they spend their fame quarter on despite of where they live.” //
”So you mean like a freedom of choice law?” ””Hmm.” ”Hmmmm.”

GRIEVOUS (Star Wars)

Grievous on mielestäni enemmänkin päheän näköinen pahis kuin erityisen hyvin käytetty pahis. Piirtäessäni häntä aloin antaa entistä enemmän arvoa hänen designilleen, kaksinkertaiset varpaat ovat nimittäin cool ratkaisu.

I think Grievous is more a cool-looking baddie than an actually well-handled bad guy. When I was drawing him I started to respect his design more and more. I find those double toes extremely cool.

THE HARE RELIEF

”And now, let’s have a… hare relief!”

Jaa mikä jäniskevennys? 2000-luvun alulla esitetyssä urheiluvisailuohjelmassa Se on siinä esitettiin silloin tällöin jäniskevennykseksi kutsuttu pätkä, jossa jänis juoksee ladulla perässään joukko ampumahiihtäjiä. Kyseisen rainan näkee täältä.

What is a hare relief? In the early 2000’s there was a Finnish sports quiz show where they sometimes showed a short video where a hare runs away from biathlon skiers. You can see the clip here.
