Amanda Vahamaki - Aitienpaiva
This is a lovely comic I bought at Angouleme drawn by Amanda Vahamaki who did 'The Bun Field'. Look how beautiful the drawing is, I think it's done with pastels and coloured pencils. It's much better in the book of course than on these scans. I'm thinking of doing a colour comic soon so this is the sort of stuff I need to look at. It's all in Finnish so I'm not sure of the story but it's about two kids living in a little coastal village in Finland. Sometimes the colours go a lot less naturalistic and everyone goes green or red. It's a very interesting thing you can do with colour.
