Aloitan siis ykkössuosikistani eli Roman Dirgestä. En edes muista milloin ensimmäistä kertaa hänen sarjakuviin ja kuvituksiin tutustuin, mutta kauan siitä jo on. Dirge on suosikkini siksi että rakastan sitä että kamalia asioita kuvataan suloisesti ja jopa viattomasti, tämä pätee niin musiikkiin kuin kuvalliseen ilmaisuun. Tämän takia myös Dirgen piirustus (Halfsies Kitten) oli toinen tatuointini, jonka otin. Ensimmäinen oli totta kai Burtonia... Kuitenkin Dirge siis on ensimmäinen tämän tyylinen sarjakuvapiirtäjä, jonka tuotantoon tutustuin ja sitä kautta ovat sitten kaikki muut tulleet tutuiksi ja edelleen löytyy uusia ihanuuksia.
While moving to new apartment I have been packing my stuff and then again taking them out of the boxes so I decided it's finally time to show you my other collections. You can find my Tim Burton collection from my other blog because it is my largest one. I have mentioned that I also collect comic books and graphic novels and now it's time to take a closer look.
I'm starting with my number one favourite Roman Dirge. I can't even remember when I first heard about him but it was many years ago. The reason why Dirge is my favourite is because I love it when horrifying and terrible things are shown or told in cute and innocent way this applies to music and visual arts. This is also the reason for taking Dirge's Halfsies Kitten as my second tattoo. First one was Burton's of course... Anyway I have found all the other comics and graphic novels via Roman Dirge because he was the first one I heard about.
