Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - September (wip)

Yet again, the first time for me to paint an animal: This time a mouse. I did a little dive into the anatomy of a mouse before starting to work on this painting and for some reason I found it very fascinating how thin and tiny legs they have. Mouses look like fluffy balls of fur on four little sticks. That said, enjoy this little bal...
I hope you all know by now that the calendar, including the illustration featured in this blog post, is now available for purchase on Wonder SHOP. There are multiple languages to be chosen for your calendar (Finnish, English, German, French and Spanish) and the calendar comes in two sizes: A4 and A3. Then now, enjoy the work-in-progress pictur...
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 ...
The Pessimist Sees Difficulty In Every Opportunity. The Optimist Sees Opportunity In Every Difficulty."  by -Winston ChurchillAt the end of January I travelled to Lahti to attend Desucon Frostbite. Of course, as the purpose was for me to sell my products there, I had to take all of them with me (In the image above you can see my working s...
 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...
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 somet...
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...
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...
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...
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)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 t...
