Jää (Ice/Stay)

Jää-albumin kansi

Suuri Kurpitsa 2008
62 pages, B5, black and white, perfect bound.

13 short novels about the board game "Star of Africa", general strike, hitch hiking, hangovers and velcro sneakers. In other words about relationships and feminism.

Some of the stories have previously been published in the Tampere comics association's magazine Sarjari and in Sweden in the Galago and Allt för konsten anthologies, among others. ”Princes” is my own favorite of the stories in the book. It is a love song, but because I’m better at drawing than singing, the song became a comic.
