Sketchbook Tumblr:
Hi peeps!

The year is coming to a close fast and the next Finnish convention creeps behind the corner of the new year. I was originally planning on printing the next book of Wurr (Finnish edition, English one still has no ETA at the moment. Hopefully within the next year) in time for the convention, but I ran into a couple of blocks on the way. I'm getting a bit behind with the page count (just a bit over one scene to gooooo, though that is kind of a big scene) but missing the deadline isn't even the biggest block; I kind of don't have enough money for the print right now.

I'm still optimistic, though! With Desucon Frostbite coming up next month, I intend to put all my artist alley earnings towards the comic print, and for that, I thought I could use some help.

I want to make a special Wurr print for the convention! I just... don't have good ideas for the design.

So here's the idea. If you have a good idea for a print design (I might make it available in several sizes, like A3 poster, A4 print and a post card), sketch it out. Just a rough sketch, stick figures are totally fine as long as I know which character is which (name tags written over plain head circles is totally fine by me). I prefer the sketches rough, as I feel bad for asking for art when I can't pay for it, and I'm going to draw the finished print myself anyway. As long as I can get the general idea, the look or quality of the sketch doesn't matter. Multiple characters are totally okay, I'm going to draw it on a canvas twice the size I usually draw the pages, so I'll have plenty of room to play around. Go wild! Have fun!

The maker of the winning design will get a copy of the finished print sent to them when it's done (if I print it in different sizes, you'll get a copy of all of them).

To take part, comment here with a link to your design (don't send notes, if possible. My notes are a horrible mess, and I can't find anything in there) aaaaand maybe mention which is your favourite Wurr character if you feel like it. For no reason.

Let's say the deadline is 18th this month (with a little leeway, as time zones are mean and all) so I can have some time to finish it too, with all the holidaying and stuff going on.

Happy doodling, and thanks for all the help!

I have no idea why I didn't start watching you before, because I really love Wurr and all the characters. But how did you get the idea for the comic?

Uhm... sorry for disturbing you, but... I'm truly sorry for Mirkku. :( I know how does that feel and just wanted to let you know that I share your pain. I shed a tear for your fallen friend.
There's not much to say. I can't even assure you that it'll hurt less in time. I lost my buddy almost 8 years ago now and I still cry like a baby when I remember her. Which happens a lot. x) Like, right now. (I'm an overly emotional idiot... -.-')
So I just wanted to say, I'm truly sorry to read that.
(And sorry for commenting here. I'm not registered on tumblr.)

I don't normally do these kinds of posts, but when I saw this video I couldn't help thinking of Iralbe!…

I'm sure this has been asked before, but forgive me for repeating questions, for I've found no definite answer in my searches. Will any Wurr comics (or other general merchandise) ever be for sale to English-speakers? Perhaps through an Etsy store or something of that sort? I've been following Wurr for quite some time, and I'd love to have some physical copies of your brilliant work on display in my home.
