Those of you who have seen my drawings for the RPG-campaign Superfly Superheroes and its sequel know that I like wrestling. I enjoy it as an art form precisely because it is scripted, as I prefer my violent entertainment to be of the fictional kind. But wrestling is not so much about violence as it is about putting up an entertaining show, that mixes circus athleticism and drama, but mostly drama. It could be described as soap opera for men, because of the very similar emotional storylines about rivalries and betrayal, where every personal grievance can be solved in the ring. I also enjoy how much a wrestling show plays out like a cross between a circus act and improv theatre, where the audience is in on the whole thing and participates together with the wrestlers, who are all colourful larger-than-life figures reminiscent of the great Greek tragedies. 

In Finland there is one active promotion, called Fight Club Finland. They have multiple shows each year, at least one per month, with several matches in a few hours. Yesterday I was at a gig called "Saturday Wrestling Slam 3", where a friend of mine was working as a referee. I really recommend watching a show if you have the opportunity.

This video is a combination of different mediums that I made as a group assignment for a museology class. The assignment was to tell a story that was somehow relevant to museums and cultural institutions, using whatever form of media we felt was appropriate. We picked a recent news story concerning the cultural value of the Turku archipelago, because there is a controversial building-project going on at one of the islands. The idea was to bring up various viewpoints in the debate, through quotes, photos and various stock sound-effects. I mixed in many of my personal photos and even some drawings, combined in experimental animation.
 
I've written an article about my thoughts and hopes for the next Doctor.

Yesterday I spent several hours filming the courtyard of one of the faculty buildings at my university, with the intention of later on speeding it up to show a few hours in a few minutes.

I recently had a second article published on DWTV, a sequel to my earlier article about the Ninth Doctor's similarities to fictional war veterans. In the sequel I discuss how I feel that the Last Great Time War is still affecting the Doctor, even though it isn't referenced directly that often anymore. I wrote about my own interpretation of eight years worth of story on the show, but I also tried to leave out my personal attachments to the characters and opinions about how the story development had been handled, in order to be more neutral.

So if you'd care to have a look and tell me what you think?

I'm a geek of many interests, including drawing and miniatures. I hesitate to use the word "art" because of how easily it can equate to something being very pretentious, or in the worst case an attempt at immunity against criticism. No, I don't call my stuff art, because I just doodle for the fun of it. I have a very cartoony style and I prefer to use exaggeration and simple designs to invoke what I could never make with a realistic style. I applaud those who can, but I'm quite comfortable with being a cartoonist. I work with different pencils and after scanning my drawings I use a program called Photosuite to colourize them.

Say, I have a question. Do you have any intentions on drawing Shelob, Ungoliant, and/or the spiders of Mirkwood???

I made a small sketch recently, to play with design-possibilities. But it currently looks like I won't be able to upload anything at all, not until the issue I described in my journal is fixed. :/

What I have in mind is something vaguely humanoid, with a recognizable face and arms.
