graphic short story

The New Look.

I’ve just finished a wee piece for the CAPE / OBSERVER / COMICA Graphic Short Story Prize 2011.  Its my first ever real comic - first ever real comic thats more that two panels long and doesn’t include the word fuck, anyway - so its a wee bit pap, but I really enjoyed doing it and shall be hopefully doing a lot more similar things in the near future.  Even if it did induce the dreaded drawing claw.  Bad claw.

If your curious enough to see the full thing its up on my website now… along with a few other revamped bits and bobs.  Have a wee lookylooky here, if you like.

He would bring me hot soup and let me sleep in his bed at night, he would not try anything, he would consider me too fragile.


I tell him that I worked in a jewelry store once, that I connected the tiniest pearls on a string, but then something happened, and I could not handle it anymore. I cannot concentrate on anything for longer periods anymore, I explain.

If you are a human being of the more emotional disposition – or indeed a human being of any emotional capacity whatsoever – I would caution you to take care when reading the short yet gorgeously presented work that is Jaako & Lauri Ahonen’s
