VIIMEINEN PUHE - ANDERS CHYDENIUKSEN PALUU
On 2016 I storyboarded and illustrated a comicbook “Last Words - The Return of Anders Chydenius” in collaboration with author Lauri Tuomi-Nikula. The book’s publication sparked a small tour in the United Kingdom, where Tuomi-Nikula and I told about our comic and the freedom of information as guests of the Mysociety-organization.
“The idea of freedom bothers Anders Chydenius even in the grave. The world has not become complete nor the people free. Therefore Anders Chydenius must rise from his grave to speak once more. Listening is young Iris, a digital native and social media expert. A flame ignites from the dialogue between the two. They reach a mutual decision on how to promote Chydenius' legacy as a joint project and how to share it even in places where freedom of speech, religion and of the individual are a mere dream.”
