hey kids!

Experts say that the comic book was born on 16 February 1896 with the publication in the New York Journal of the comic strip 'The Yellow Kid', the first strip to include speech bubbles in the drawings. In Spanish, speech bubbles are called sandwiches – bocadillos . In Italian, they are called fumetti because they look like clouds of smoke. French and German use similar words to English – bulles (bubbles) and Sprechblase (speech bubbles).

Onomatopoeia is frequently used in the ninth art. The Spanish comic strip featuring secret agents Mortadelo and Filemón often contains babies crying. Waaaaahh! in English becomes Buaaaaahh!in Spanish and even Buuuuuuu! in Polish. The Italians wailers take a different cry (ueueueeee! ).

Stories about superheroes are full of people hitting each other. English punches go Pow! , while a good Spanish blow sounds like Pum! Depending on nationality, the person on the receiving end produces very different exclamations: the Germans shout Autsch! (like the English Ouch!), the French go Ouille! and the Polish cry Ala!

Attention: this commment will autodestruct in five seconds. Five… four… three… two… one… Boom! (in English), Puff! (German), Bam! (Spanish).

hei Satu!

yes, in many ways, Andrei Molotiu is responsible for the current cred that abstract comics carries...he's been at it quite a while, kind of in a missionary sense, prodding people toward the endless possibilities...

...& yes, you are correct, his work is amazing! some of his actual work is on a large scale, which would be great to see in the flesh...i'm just so glad that he is an enthusiastic person & has an ability to spread that enthusiasm among others...like me, for instance, if it wasn't for Andrei, i don't think i would have explored abstarct comics to degree that i have...he has opened up a lot of doors & in many cases those doors were not easy to open...going against the grain, endlessly trying to explain what abstarct comics are...dealing with hostility & being able to turn it all around...in my book, he has become somewhat of a cultural hero...

I finally managed to flip through some of this plethora of amazing stuff you've done. I was also fond of the package(s) Satu had with her at the Saaren Kartano Workshop. The 3-d stuff made me think of some of the recent work being done by some Finnish comics artists associated with the Huuda Huuda ("Shout Shout") publisher and the magazine KutiKuti ("TickleTickle"). They have an anthology out (10th in a series) called Glömp X and there's an exhibition connected to it which has some amazing sculptures and installations of abstract comics. There's some info at the bottom of this page:


I think you'd really like these guys and gals. :D

Из удовольствий наиболее приятны те, которые встречаются наиболее редко. Самые, лучшие духи в маленьких флаконах. Отдайтесь вашему делу всем сердцем и душою, но посмотрите прежде всего хорошее ли это дело. Разумный гонится за тем что приятно, а за тем что избавляет отнеприятностей. Вся Россия, это пьющий Гамлет.
