You may call me Papermonkey.

Sketchbook Tumblr:

So, today marks the start of Desucon Frostbite, in Lahti, Finland (my current hometown), and I’ve been meaning to write something like this for a dang long time, so I thought I’d throw this together to procrastinate

If you see me drawing
In case you spot me sitting somewhere, drawing something (most probably Wurr), you’re welcome to come and chat with me. I’m not bothered with company; if I wanted to draw undisturbed, I wouldn’t draw in a convention.

My sketchbook(s)
I usually carry two sketchbooks with me, in addition to my comic papers (the current one I’m fillng, and the previous one I filled before that). You are free to browse through them if you wish! :) Just ask. Some pages might be spoilerrific which I will tape shut, so if you see two pages stuck together from the edges, please don’t open them. (There are future Wurr concepts in there, no looking.)

Also, you’re free to doodle something, like your own hello, into the sketchbook that’s currently being filled if you wish. (I have pens/pencils to borrow. ;)) Trading hellos into peoples’ sketchbook is an ancient Liminka school of arts tradition.

Want me to draw for you?
This is kind of a variable one, but as a general rule, if you want me to draw my paper persona (you know, the papermonkey) or a tiny raptor/troodon, just stick a piece of paper in front of me and ask. They won’t take much time.

If you want me to draw anything else, I want to get paid. I can sketch my own characters for about 5€. Drawing something else requires time, references and concentration, so I’d rather not do too much of those (I want the con to be fun for myself too), but in slow or silent moments when there’s less people around and you stay to chat with me, I might doodle something, if you provide me the paper and keep your request simple (and have few euros to give to a poor art student). I will pause to serve customers if I’m at artist alley, so it’s usually best to ask later in the day, or if I’m already sitting somewhere outside of the alley drawing Wurr. If you want me to draw, you provide the paper. 

(Wanted to put this up here as well, partly to bump the previous journal out of the front page. I got a chance to come make my thesis stuff at school, so my 3D program got upgraded from Blender to Cinema 4D.)

Wow, I just kinda stumbled onto your page and saw a couple pages of that Wurr comic of yours and WOW Your anatomy and art and stuff is just AMAZING!!!!!! Great job on it, it's really helpful for me to look at too!! It's pretty inspirational too :D :Big eyes: 

Hope you don't mind the extra watcher ^^'
You are my absoloute favorite canine artists by far and one of my favorite comic artists. I admire and respect your use of anatomy correctly might I add and your creativity in story and use of logic.

Oh my god, your Wurr comic is so good. ;w; I love the storyline, I read all 192 pages in a day. And the art is so beautiful, I cannot even express how awesome you are.
My thoughts if Wurr was a comic book you could purchase:
Can you
Can you just take all of my money
Please Pap, don't think I'm spamming you but

SOPA is back, if you could spread the word, that would be amazing.

Hei, onko sulla yhtään Wurria myynnissä tällä hetkellä? En itse käy coneissa joten voisin ostaa vain näin netissä. Arvostelisin sarjan myös mielelläni blogissani: Osia on vissiin kaksi ilmestynyt, vaiko jo kolme?

Wurria on tätä nykyä ilmestynyt kolme osaa, ja jep, toistaiseksi kaikki ovat vielä saatavilla. :) Ykkönen rupeaa olemaan kyllä vähissä, mutta vielä pitäisi löytyä kun vähän kaivelee. Tökkää notella, niin voidaan jutella paremmin maksuista ja postituksista.
Erinomaisen mielelläni lukisin niistä arvosteluakin!
