a_jan21_ref
After several years of trying to finish my calendar well in time, it seems this year I actually have a chance to do so. This is all thanks to the fact that Corona-virus has given me plenty of time to focus on my art creation. This year the theme for the calendar is "In the Wonder World" and it will have 12 fantasy/fairy tale themed i...

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 gets ...

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 faste...

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'd...

I needed to paint this commission three times to be satisfied...

a_cherry_feature
At the end, not giving up was certainly the right thing to do with this commission. To me, it is really important that I can be proud of the artworks that I create, especially so when it is a commission. I believe when I can look at my painting and know that I've truly and honestly given it my best, the client will be happy with it a...

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 imaginary...

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 ...

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 fo...

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...

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.

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. I...
