Our Finnish friend Ninni Aalto is a wonderful artist, writer, and graphic designer–you may remember her Tallahassee Tentacles hockey shirts. Now she has a new book out, Sähköjänis, which translates (we are told) as Mechanical Rabbit (electric?). Ninni has a real rabbit named Schopenhauer, and a cartoon version of this bunny appears (prominently) in the book. (Check out the website.)

Some of the comics are about coffee or about her life as a graphic designer with ideas coming out of her faster than she can keep up with them.
