Mindy's Love Boutique is an on going series about sex, sexuality and relationships. The story takes it's place in an erotic shop where Mindy and her employee Liz discuss various issues, from squirting and orgasms to communication and Asexuality.
Mindy's Love Boutique's goal, rather than being a sex education bible is to make the reader feel safe and valid and create discussion around queer inclusive sex education and sexual content.
Mindy's Love Boutiques first volume was self published as a zine in March 2019 and it has also gained readers in Instagram (@painting.by.a.lake)
8.9.2019 I spoke about Mindy's Love Boutique and comics as a tool for sex education in a panel "Queer inclusive sex education with comics" as a part of Zine Fest/Helsingin sarjakuvafestivaalit.
ECO - The Green Zine was a collaborative art project between 14 artists in 2019. Each artist approached the topic of nature in a variety of ways, in forms of comics, paintings and illustrations. The project came in to being from frustration of how the acts of individual feels so little when all you hear around you is bad news, each worse than the previous, that's why all the proceeds of the ECO are going to charities to help oceans, forests and animals.
In October 2018 I took a part in the yearly drawing challenge Inktober for the first time, and when it was over I turned my illustrations into my very first zine "Inktober 2018"! Inktober was such a great exercise towards learning to make art on a schedule, and even it was exhausting all the illustrations are still very dear to me and I'm proud of them.
Sekalaisia Sotkuja is my Finnish comic blog at Sarjakuvablogit (link in the logo). In the blog I share thoughts, parts of my life and sometimes show different kind of comic exercises. I don't update my blog weekly or stress about it, it's my place to try and fail! It's a place where I can test different ways of making comics and see what works and what doesn't.
