Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - January (wip)

a_jan_feature
  Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 – January (wip) This year I wanted to make sure I'd not have my calendar finished at the last minute like it's been the past two years. So, I have already started working on the illustrations. The theme I have for 2019 is about animal close-ups and flowers. I also want to use a restricted color palette to give...

The Story Behind My Most Popular Painting

a_ff_feature
​It's been about two years since I created my so far most popular painting, "Firefoxes". In this blog post I want to bring up the reasons I believe why it is so popular among people of all ages.  The popularity of these happy foxes is based on the fact that it is the most bought design on all the products that I have. It does not matter which ...

Jasu Wonder World company was registered on 11 th of October which, funnily enough, is only one day after the birthday of Naruto Uzumaki, a fictional character that this blog post is going to be all about. Years ago, around the age of 17, I started following a J...

YUKICON 2018

Yukicon_logo_taustaton
Yukicon, which was held in Helsinki during February, was my first event in 2018. I'd gladly have participated Desucon Frostbite but when I contacted the organizers all their tables had already been reserved. So, going to Yukicon it had been a while since I had been in any event and I was very happy to get away from my little apartment for...

ALICE IN WONDERLAND THEMED DRAWING - COMMISSION PROGRESS

aiw_feature
The commissioner wanted me to create "Alice in Wonderland"-themed drawing for their friend. The man in the drawing was to resemble one of her original characters and there were a few items the commissioner wanted to include into the artwork, but everything else I could decide on my own as long as the drawing would maintain its theme. Below you'll f...

I FORGOT TO POST THESE LAST YEAR

santa_wip_feature
It's been a year since I created a design for Jasu Wonder World Christmas t-shirt and I suddenly came to realize that I never posted the work-in-progress pictures of that particular painting! Better late than never is one of my favorite quotes so here we go: From the very first sketch to the finished design that then got printed on t-shirts.  ...

THE CREATION OF THE CALENDAR ILLUSTRATIONS

calendar_wip_feature
To make life easier for all of us, I decided to put all the work-in-progress pictures of the calendar illustrations into the same blog post.  These illustrations were a lot of fun for me to paint, especially for the reason that they were very simple (considering my usual creations). Finishing one of these illustrations took me approximately 4-...

PENCIL PORTRAIT - COMMISSION PROGRESS

pencil_portrait_feature
It's been a while since I got a chance to create a pencil portrait. With this commission, I greatly enjoyed adding all the details as precisely as I could. For the first time ever I got to draw a person that was old enough to have some wrinkles on their face and it really was a fun challenge to draw them! Also, I'm very happy and pleased to notice ...

So, today I kindly present you: Tracon, 8.-10.8.2017 Above a couple...

TWO EVENTS IN ONE POST

Feature-17
 It's been three weeks since Ropecon, and a week since I returned from Worldcon. That's plenty of time to recover enough to finally write something about those two events which both took place in Helsinki, at Expo and Convention Centre. Honestly, it feels to me that Ropecon was a little warm-up before "the real deal", Worldcon. The three days ...

IT TURNED OUT EVEN CUTER THAN I EXPECTED!

Feature-4
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...

A SONG TO THE MOON - COMMISSION PROGRESS

15_feature
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...

THE EVOLUTION OF MY TABLE

Feature-13
It's been 9 months since I attended an event for a first time to sell my products (Kitacon 2016). Now, let's take a look at how it all started: As can be seen above, my first representation wasn't that appealing but at least all the products were there. Such thing as a table cloth hadn't even crossed my mind and so I ended up using a blanket that I...
