Hey y’all punkzine,zine,scrapbooking,bullet jornaling,diary making,ransom writing,mini comics lovers and smallpress writers out there!
Here we go again…
There was a time between the social distancing and quarantine routines, where I did lot’s of scrapbooking called PUNKZINE!
Yeah, I really don’t know is it a thing, but country where I live, it’s not.
Well maybe some underground scenes, but I haven’t met many people who shares this passion with me.
It is therapeutic thing to cut letters and pictures to these small comics.
If you are trying to find out, is there anything what makes sense, I can tell you, no… nothing makes sense.
Let’s see the first two episodes of my punkzine magazines.
All the headlines were about those innocent people, who were traveling and they were demonized..
THEY WILL BRING THE DECEASE TO YOU!
Can’t argue, we all were so very scared, but mostly because of the media.
It was really difficult time to find news without spreading virus.
After one year, everyone were suddenly rich?!?
Well I sure was not, but most of working class heroes, were buying cabins and using money like no tomorrow..
No holiday—->equals shitton of money.
Finns started to use lots of more alcohol at home, because bars were closed and Finns are famous drinkers I’ll give you that.
My personal drinking habits didn’t change.
Bottle of wine, here and there.
Sometimes few special beers from small brewery’s and of course Rum.
Now when written, sounds a lot.
Oh the hobbies..
“I started to play Ukulele”
“I started to learn new language”
And the list goes on… that’s a good thing, for my point of view.
More creativity and more time means more hobbies.
Well I still suck at my choices, poor bastard.
MORE PETS, MORE RENOVATIONS!!!
Thank god, I didn’t got any pets.
After the lockdown, I absolutely don’t have time for those love little poochies.
Renovations needs money and skills.
Sad but true, many pets were killed.
Eh… New equipment for the digital solutions?
I might have stepped to this trap myself.
On the bright side, my internet speed is SO FAST!
No matter how many Zooms are going on while someone is streaming movies and playing games online.
Next number of the punkzine magazine is about (HAND WASHING)
Let me introduce it.
Like told, this is about hand washing routines.
I haven’t used so much soap or hand sanitizer in my entire life before this.
After all, you get used to it.
My thoughts were in India at this moment, there was some documentary about how much people lives there and damn.. that was insane.
If we had problems in this small country in Europe, they had it many times more.
Makes me still sad when I’m thinking all those big countries.
There was some wise guy who said: “use Evian” for hand washing..
Oh stupidity, that’s just great idea.
“AND THE STUPIDEST IDEA PRICE GOES TO..”
If we are having a competition about who gets the most effective stupid way, here it is.
By now, it gets bit dark.
Sometimes when you battle with your inner demons, this is what you get.
Oh the irony of the government’s solution sometimes.
“Humor negro” one of my friends said to me, when I was making this.
Yes indeed, but handling difficult things NEEDS someone who points the absurd solutions to you.
Handle with care!
After all, I mean no harm and disrespect.
I’m just dark and my humor is twisted.
It was horrible times and that time influenced my art.
Maybe I should keep this locked inside the drawer, but anarchistic inside of me demands release.
I survived, but so many did not.
That’s no joke, my art is therapy for myself and perhaps it gives way to you how to release a tension in your wicked mind..
We all are little bit derailed from the after these horrible times.
Perhaps we still have hope and redemption, after all..
Like uncle Marley sang:
“Don’t you worry about a thing, cause every little things gonna be alright..”
He ain’t really my uncle, but I can relate to the song.
Keep your heads up people, better times are coming…
