Synopsis:

Some thousand miles up north from Tistow, in the harsh wilds dominated by long dark winters, live the nomadic Fjoldi. They're skilled craftsmen, herders, hunters and fishermen. Despite attempts from the main land's missionaries to turn their faith, they continue to worship a myriad number of spirits and are lead by the shaman of the tribe. Jáhko and Veeti are just two of the many children born to this way of life.

The story will take Jáhko and Veeti on fantastical adventures to the nearby woods, helping fairies build houses, outwitting monsters, gathering seeds with trolls and helping wisps grow saplings. Under the guidance from Jáhko's grandmother and the woodland spirits the boys will learn the ways of the shaman and to respect nature.

The Authors

Hello ‘ello!

Hello! My name is Elli. I'm a 29-year-old self-employed illustrator originally from Finland, living in the United Kingdom since 2009. I'm part Sápmi from my mother's side and the other side of the family are from all over Finland. This means I travel. A lot.

I'm a huge fan of all things Victorian and Georgian. My favourite writers include Terry Pratchett, Henry Mayhew and Charles Dickens. Out of my favourite artists, Paul Kidby, Gustave Doré and the Himekawa team have influenced my works the most. I enjoy games of all sorts, my favourites being the Zelda series, Fallout and World of Warcraft where I have consumed an awful lot of my time.

I also keep a mischief of rats, 13 of them to be exact, all named after disreputable characters from Twist and Discworld.

G'day!

Karoliina here, or Karo for short. I was born on 1993 in the very heartland of Finland, and frankly, I've never gone much further from there!

I'm a Japanese RPG-enthusiast, which led me to want to write, illustrate, and craft stories heavily influenced by many classic JRPG series, such as Final Fantasy and Shin Megami Tensei. From there I developed an interest in game development and 3D-graphics in videogames, which I'd like to make a career out of. I have previously worked on a Steam Greenlit title as a character designer and technical artist.

I'm currently working on my own comic project Year In Hereafter and as a freelance artist/illustrator.
