You may call me Papermonkey.

Sketchbook Tumblr:
'Eyy, peeps! It's been a while!

This past year+ has been pretty hectic in my part of the world, I bet you've noticed the slowing down of my pace when it comes to comic updates. (I remember the times of uploading a page every single week fondly...)

A bit over a year ago my schedule got shot to the orbit by having practical training in the capital, which sucked up pretty much all my time (although I'm super glad I got the training job, my first time in an actual, professional animation studio! One that had more than two people in it at least. Great times, great times), and after surviving that part, I started working on my thesis to graduate from school, and that lasted pretty much an entire year. Those who follow me on tumblr are probably familiar with the despair of my "Papermonkey attempts to graduate"-tag... 

Aaanyway. The thesis got stretched like half a year longer than it was supposed to, but I managed to pass the final presentation of it few days ago (while having a flu too!), and am now officially on my way to graduation! The official graduation day will be next friday, and that's it for my four and half years in Lahti University of Applied Sciences Institute of Design. (My new title will be "medianomi", which I have no clue on how to translate in English.) Whoot!

First time in twenty years I won't be a student anymore. Scary! But this means that I'm entering the glorious world of joblessness, so while I'll start wondering how on earth does one do this "adult" thing, I'm also probably going to have a lot more time in my hands, which means I can finally get back to the good old pencil wagging! I'm planning to also start streaming comic page drawing again. My brainstorm buddy is moving out of town too, so majority of my comic drawing has to be transported from her sofa into *gasp* me actually motivating myself! And speaking from experience, streaming seems like the best option to get me on my lazy butt. Having people judging me looking at me working is a pretty good motivator. So there's more comic looming in the future! (I actually splurged and thumbnailed like seven pages right after surviving the thesis presentation; I guess I had to let the adrenaline out somewhere.)

I'm probably going to flee for the holidays as soon as the graduation happens, so I might not be online much for the rest of the month, but expect comicing to resume upon new year!

Happy holidays everyone!

I just wanted to tell you since the very first time I started to read Wurr that I'm totally in love with the story and the characters. I really like and a bit envy your drawing skills. :D
I've been following you since 2012 June (still remember page 142, the first one I saw and that was love at first sight!) but only now had the guts to comment on your page. :D
Also your dinosaurs are also cute and the Triaformicas are very impressive and well-made-up (dunno how could I describe it better >.<)... Woah, I really like your stuff here on dA! *.*
Keep up this excellent work and have a nice day! :)

(... and also greetings from Hungary! :D)

Hello there! I just want to say that I love your comic "Wurr" and you drawings are AMAZING! Just one question; Do you do requests or art trades?
