This is the end of the frozen lands for me now ( I will be back! ) and I couldnt help adding some corpse paint to my face before I leave. Its weird that, although being a big Black Metal fan, I havent been listening to it very much in Finland. Scandinavia is the place! what the hell happened!?.
I guess I have been very busy trying to find a way of making it through the day. Music has not been part of my plans here and that sucks. I remember as a kid that I would feel sick of something if I didnt listen to any of my records and the bands I liked. Music is VERY important in my life so I should take care of it more often.
I dont know what I want to do in my last day in Helsinki before heading to Maimi. I have to work and sketch for a while and I know I will me meeting Natty, Sarah and Sepi at some point but I dont know. I would love to so I can say goodbye.
I also wanted to thank Sergio for everything he´s done and being so awesome but I dont think anything on planet earth or maybe the Cosmos could be big enough to thank him for how much he has taken care of me. No one has treated me like this before. At least not for this long. He is a EXTREMELY patient man and , if it wasnt for him, I would have never accomplished S-Pangea´s first mission.
Taking about Black Metal, I went to this record store the other day called KVLT that looked pretty cool (with the best street sign ever!). They had great stuff that I cant afford and I cant take with me - There is nothing more annoying than traveling with records. They dont fit anywhere and they are very fragile -. Anyway, I checked all their books and their amazing stuff until I get to the patch section. I noticed they had a bunch (too many) Nazi patches and I felt disgusted. Everyone knows that Black Metal somehow is related to that. Luckily, not everything but this face of it makes me sick.
I LOVE how all the nazi paraphernalia looks like, though. Far from what it means, I think they were the best on that, that its true. I have never seen such great and beautiful imagery. Everything is perfect and good looking.
I decided to go for a walk last night. Just me, on my own, to think about the things I need to do, plan, etc. I needed to spend some time with myself before I go so I left the house and started walking heading nowhere.
Ok, in less than half an hour I was already feeling like this picture so I went home to eat rice and watch Seinfield. Bad idea!. NOW the REAL cold is here so Im happy Im leaving!. Ouch!

Im meeting the guys of Anima Boutique today too. They want to have a look at my portfolio and the things that I do, It would be WONDERFUL if we could collaborate in any project with them soon. It would be amazing to start doing animation again or, at least, be involved in it somehow. Lets see what happens. If I get a job I might have to cancel my plans and stay here instead of flying to Miami. Life is a mystery and I love it.
I did this poster yesterday while having 30 cups of coffee because I was literally falling sleep on the computer. I miss doing more graphic design stuff...
I think thats all. I might post some sketches later since this is my last day here and I want it to be a double shot. I will be traveling for 2 days so I guess its fair. I still have 15 pages to finish the 150 but I will be spending HOURS at a bunch of airports so Im happy I have things to do while I wait and wait and wait.

Im going to miss this place so much
