JWW 2022 Calendar - May

a_ref_may22
I was beyond excited to create a calendar illustration starring my favorite dragon and the main character of the "dragon story", which you might have heard me mention before. If you haven't: for some years now I've had an idea for a story about this girl and this dragon. In time I'll create this story as a comic, but meanwhile, ...

JWW 2022 Calendar - April

a_ref_april22
If you think the girl in this illustration looks a little like me, then you wouldn't be wrong. This girl's appearance was inspired by what happens when my hair has been braided for a few days. You can find her outfit in my wardrobe too. I wanted this illustration to have strong "spring vibes" and included a few things that bring that...

JWW 2022 Calendar - March

a_ref_march22
What I absolutely love about creating this calendar is that thanks to the lineart in the illustrations I can be abundant with details and not need to worry the artwork is going to take too much of my time. When I look at my illustrations they often have stories to tell me, and I feel that with this calendar that is mor...

JWW 2022 Calendar - February

a_ref_feb22
Shouldn't be a surprise I like all things magical, and since it's all about "A Window to Another World", a little bit of magic here and there is definitely happening. Is it just a dream that the little girl is having, or are these beautiful creatures really passing by the window? One of the puppies is wide awake, and his attention has cer...

JWW 2022 Calendar - January

a_ref_jan22
The creation of Jasu Wonder World calendar has begun early this year. For 2022, the theme of the calendar will be "A Window to Another World". We'll be seeing a lot of different windows, that's for sure, and for January I wanted to capture the atmosphere of a cold winter day. I wanted the illustration to look freezing and warm at the same time. Bas...

Over 40 Seals in One Painting - A Commissioned Watercolor Painting

a_ref_seals
 In summer 2020 I got to create this very detailed watercolor painting with more than 40 seals in it! Definitely one of those paintings that properly test my patience. The original size of this commission was A2 (59,4 x 42 cm) and the client had a few specific things she wanted included into the painting. Some examples of these are t...

Faunus Lady - A Commissioned Digital Logo Design

a_ref_digilogo
Last summer I was commissioned a logo for an online store. The client wanted it done digitally, which I was delighted about since I very rarely get to do such commissions. The idea of the logo was to have a portrait of a faunus lady, vaguely resembling the face of the commissioner. Foresty tones, such as different greens and browns,&...

a_ref_cal21illustrations

Since this evening it's snowing outside and I cannot do my usual calendar/book sales, I decided to give you some work-in-progress material of my wonderful 2021 calendar! I'm going to introduce June, July, August and September,...

My Second Cat Portrait Commission

a_ref_catcom
This post is all about a commissioned watercolor painting I created in the beginning of summer. Before starting to work on the painting, I showed the client the cat portrait I had made a year ago. She liked the composition and we agreed I'd make this portrait in a similar way. The client had a list of certain plants that she wan...

A Custom Birthday Card Commission

a_ref_card
The first time I got to create a digitally colored drawing as a commission! I mean, I do love watercolors but it was nice to do something a little different. Painting with watercolors is after all, to me, the most time (and brain-energy) consuming way of creating art.This cheerful fox was a custom design for a birthday card. The clie...

The King of the Forest - JWW 2021 Calendar, "In the Wonder World"

a_ref_apr21
I've painted several different deer, but this is only my second moose. My first painting featuring a moose is actually an illustration in the story of Sebastian; you see, Sebastian's teacher is a moose. This moose that I painted for the upcoming calendar is a bit more realistic, but not too realistic, since the calendar is ...

At the moment, I have finished 5 of the total 12 calendar illustrations for my 2021 calendar. This blog post features March, the dragon! If you've been following me on my social media, you probably know I have a great passion for dragons, thus I was absolutely delighted to paint this particular illustration. I deliberately chose to make i...

2021 Calendar "In the Wonder World" - February

a_ref_feb21
The illustration of February was very simple and took me only a few hours to finish. My main idea was to have a dark pond/lake in the middle of a forest, with everything dark and still. I wanted the scene to radiate silence so deep you can almost hear it from the image. The unicorn is in the center of the painting; it is the only source of light in...

The Creation of My Biggest Watercolor Painting Commission

a_rat_ref
Nine rats living in a fantasy forest; the most detailed large-scale painting I've ever done so far. The painting process took me about one and a half months from start to finish, though I should point out I did not work on this commission full-time. I also had other tasks and projects that I worked on during that time....

The Creation of a Custom Wedding Card

While I was still working on my biggest single watercolor painting commission (a blog post about that will be up later on), I created this simple custom wedding card for a family member. It was nice to make something small and simple after spending so much time on the big commission. The only instruction I got for this wedding card w...

Finally I have the time to write a new blog post! Needless to say, the past couple of months have been the busiest of my life. However, now that the Christmas-sales-season is over, I have successfully made a schedule for myself, to get piles of work done, and I've made sure that this schedule has time reserved for blog posts too...

Cat Portrait - Commission

a_catfeature
So far, I have had the chance to create portraits of humans and dogs, but this time it was, for the first time, a cat.This particular cat had had a special relationship with pansies, and the commissioner wanted to have her furry friend portrayed with them, thus I got the idea of the kitty being surrounded with these flowers, holding one&n...

Just before the busy summer-sales-season, I got to create three commissions that were all for three different businesses. The first one was a logo design, second a caricature for a business card, and the third another logo design. I'm sharing the work-in-progress material here as usual, with some more details about the creation processes ...
