Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - July (wip)

a_featurejuly
 This is the first domestic cat painting I've created during my career as an artist of Jasu Wonder World. I almost can't believe it took nearly two years for this to happen. And now I'm actually planning on painting some more domestic cats in the not-so-distant future. But, about that I will tell you more only when/if this particular plan...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - June (wip)

a_featurejune
Halfway there! (even though, at the time this post is being published I'm almost done with all the illustrations) The original being only A4-sized and the painting itself being relatively simple, this bunny took me surprisingly long time to finish (10-12 hours). The flowers around her were the most time-consuming. However, I became faster with...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - May (wip)

a_feature_may
One more finished, 7 more to go!  Honestly, I didn't think it would take this long for me to create these illustrations. That's why, starting this week, I'm setting some other projects aside until I have all the months finished. I like having multiple things going on at once but now I'm simply falling behind schedule so badly that I need to do...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - April (wip)

a_featured_april
Another finished illustration for Jasu Wonder World calendar 2019! This time I painted an animal I've never painted before: a sheep. I wanted the flowers around the little lamb to resemble the texture and softness of his woolen coat. This was one of those paintings that required so much of "gentle tapping of the paint brush", that I'...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - March (wip)

a_feature_mar
​I'm so happy about the way this illustration turned out! It went better than just according to my plan! I wanted to express the playfulness of the lynx cub and the fluffy things she's being so fascinated about became just the way I imagined them. So far, all the plants I've been drawing to this calendar have been completely imaginar...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 – February (wip)

a_feature_feb
It doesn't show very clearly in the picture, but if you look at the colored pencil sketch made on watercolor paper, you might notice that the flowers on the water were originally planned to be pink. If you read Finnish, you'll see that  I've even written it on the very first sketch. However, this plan was quickly trashed as I noticed the ...

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 ...

DESUCON 2018

a_desu_2018
For once I was well in time, writing a blog post about Desucon just a week after it. Then, once I was about to proudly announce the publication of the post, it disappeared. Now, almost a month after Desucon, I'm writing the whole thing all over again. I can only hope it's going to be as good as the first one.  ​Some new products I had on sale ...
