Technicolor OCT-Round-3-01 by kozispoon
Still coloring away like a madman, but Salty dog Selby’s comic for round 3 of the Technicolor OCT is live! I’ll be posting a page a day until the contest deadline (Aug 31st 9:59pm. Gulp!). Here’s hoping I get it all in, in time. Wish me luck! #Jesustakethewheel
I’ve run into a bit of an unexpected financial snag and could use a little extra change in my pockets! If you would like one please send me a note with “commission” in the title. The prices above are per headshot. Please include any reference for the character(s) you can provide. If you’d like something more than what I’m offering please don’t be afraid to ask! We’ll discuss details and payment there and I’ll get straight to work! I’ll update this journal with the waiting list and finished pieces as I go.
Thank you, guys!
You there! you want someone to draw the thing? Commission Y2Jenn and she’ll draw you the stuffs! I got Mimi The Mime commissioned and loved it. You will too!
Can you tell me about your time in Finland? Like how long did you stay there, where did you live, what did you do, did you like it? Basically everything. I'd like to hear it because I have been thinking about moving there for quite some time now. Thanks!
When I posted THIS comic, I didn’t realize three months would turn into a year. I lived in Helsinki (more specifically a little island off of Helsinki called Lauttasaari) through most of 2013. I got there in the summer which is GORGEOUS and the country knows it.Everyone is outside and the city is bustling. I assume its because everyone is furiously tanning off their winter pallor.
In the summer Finland is sunshine for most of the 24hr day, but once winter rolls around, its darkness. As someone from California I spent most of the winter inside and confused.
The fact that the winter is also dark (the sun only comes up for a couple of hours before it gets dark again) was not fun. Definitely not for the faint of heart. I consider myself a pretty upbeat person, but even I found myself pretty anxious for spring.
The culture shock took a little getting used to. Finland is a pretty anti-social country. You don’t talk to people you don’t know. Even to say ‘excuse me’ when you bump into them. Making friends with the natives is tough, but seeing as so many ex pats come in for free schooling or work in the booming mobile games industry, it wasn’t too hard to find non native pals to be confused with.
I don’t regret going as it was definitely an experience, and I’d totally visit again (in summer!), but given the choice, I probably wouldn’t live there again. I recommend checking out Depressing Finland tumblr page as it was a handy place for me when I had questions about Finland.
Protip: end park activity, crank up the AC and head home when your corgi starts sounding like a pug.
You wanna go, bro? You wanna go??
This is why there’s been a lack of posts… should only be a few more days before this is all inked! I’m going to try to “color” digitally, looking forward to trying that!
Nothing is sexier than pages of comics laid out tantalizingly like this. You are a machine, SpiffyChicken! Best of luck to ya!
Be cozy in your birthday Kozi. But not so cozy as to be a tea cozy which you can be if you want to! \o\
