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.

Jäniskevennys

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.

Ergonominen nukkumisasento

AN ERGONOMIC SLEEPING POSITION

Note: the Finnish expression ”one could sleep on a fence pole” means pretty much the same as the English version ”one could sleep on the head of a pin”.

”Ouch, my back hurts.” ”That’s always the case after you’ve slept in a tent.” //
”True. But I always get used to it after a couple of nights.” ”Yes.” //
”And on a camp I’m usually so tired that I could sleep on a fence pole.” ”How do you picture people sleeping on a fence pole?” //
”Honestly, I’ve never thought of that.” ”I’d imagine it’s something like this…” //
”That looks extremely uncomfortable.”

Haihtuus hiutaleet!

FADE WITH THE FLAKES!

”I participated a Harry Potter themed LARP where we were stranded in an inn during a magical snowstorm. My character was an environmentalist and a griffin activist Fern Marlowe. She was asked some weird questions.” //
”How much age difference do you and your sister have?” //
”Could you keep this invisibility cloak for us?” //
”Are you a werewolf?” //
”What is your opinion on house elves?” //
”Can I see your coat?” //
”What do you have in that suitcase you guard so closely?” ”Nothing!”


”Actually I was smuggling an orphaned griffin egg. No one found it. Which was unfortunate, in a way.” //
”It’s going to hatch soon. If the chick is a boy, I’ll name him Billy. If it is a girl, she’s gonna be Billie.” //
”I don’t think I thought this through.” ”Hungry! HUNGRY! HUNGRY!

ICE SKATING 101

”This is how you can get some speed… Push with the spikes in the front, like this.” //
”Yes, that’s it! With the spikes!” ”No, not with the spikes…” //
”Uh… what was the thing about the dark side again?” ”Quicker it is, easier, more seductive.” ”And it inevitably leads to suffering when you hit your jaw in the ice.”

CRITICAL MASS

Kaikki kunnia tästä sarjiksesta (piirtämistä lukuun ottamatta) menee herra Bronylle.
All the credit from this comic (though not the drawing) goes to Mr Brony.

”Wine was too sweet to be served with this food. Plot was poorly advanced in the new movie. Grammar and especially usage of punctuation marks should be rehearsed. I don’t like the color of your socks.”
