2021 Calendar "In the Wonder World" - February

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...
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...
I finished this portion of comic diary a while ago but completely forgot about it for a couple of weeks! Here it is finally, sorry for the wait!
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....
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...

You can find all the illustrations I created for the sto...
 The incident where I asked a stranger to drive me to the railway station is here in this earlier comic diary update.
 Lately I've been sharing details of my early artist career, and the events that lead to the decision to pursue such a path to begin with. There are so many things that have happened that I simply cannot share every detail. However, I hope this comic diary gives you at least a rough idea of my journey so far. Enjoy! 
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...
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...
