Year In Hereafter is an indie fantasy webcomic inspired by the Finnish Folklore and the Finnish national epic, Kalevala. The story resides in a few separate realities, one of them being our world and the modern age, and a fictional universe based on Kalevala's poetry and stories. This parallel world thus has been named to its namesake, known as the Northern Continent of Kalevala. The comic updates regularly on Sundays with occasional surprise updates on Wednesdays.
I have to admit, I forgot this whole blog things existed at all!
It’s been a long time since I’ve done any updates considering YIH and it’s finally time to get back to it. I’ve gotten a chance to work on Tistow: Small Trolls, and two other comic projects made by different writers, where I’ve worked as the colorist. That has been really cool and a great experience which I can’t thank them enough for.
Anyway, back to YIH. During my hiatus and not working on it at all, I did have a little bit of a personal dilemma about drawing it in the first place. I felt like I was not too happy with the quality or the drawing. During these 5 months when I’ve not worked on it at all I’ve gained some of my confidence back and I’ve enjoyed drawing it so much more.
Not to mention, Year In Hereafter’s 4 first chapters were sent to print! Unfortunately it’s not going to be hard-cover books, but those floppy thin leaflets instead. I am still enormously happy I could try it, and do it. We’ll see how it goes!
Overall, it’s a very nice way to spend the anniversary!
And the front of the website is finally updated.
I have done a good thing.
