The Swedish translation of my album Tuuli ja Myrsky (Suuri Kurpitsa, 2009).

A story about violence, fear, anger, courage, friendship and gender. Experienced and observed incidences and emotions, an article by Mari Kamaja "How I Was Raped" (Aamulehti Sunday supplement "Sunnuntai asiat" 14.12.2007) that I made the illustrations for and also a zine named What Do We Do Then? – Community Response to Sexual Assault have influenced the creation of this graphic novel.
