The 2024 calendar season is pretty much over and soon it's time for me to start working on the illustrations for the next calendar! But before we get there, I want to share all the work-in-progress material I collected of the 2024 illustrations.

JWW 2022 Calendar - August

a_ref_august

Long time no blog post! But that's because the last couple of months of 2021 I was too busy to prioritize making blog posts. Instead, I prioritized getting sufficient sleep in order to be able to finish my busy season while maintaining mental sanity, which I did and I'm most proud!   But that's enough of that. Now, let me share the w...

JWW 2022 Calendar - July

a_ref_july

I wanted the illustration of July to be warm and peaceful; A beautiful Summer's day with nature in its full bloom. There's all the time in the world to just comfortably relax and enjoy the soft scent of Summer, flowers, and sunshine. Here's the very first tiny sketch that the illustration is based on. My initial s...

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 tha...

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 ce...

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...

This illustration of May was finished a while ago, and here's finally the blog post where you'll see the finished illustration and all the work-in-progress material. Just like all the other illustrations in this calendar, I wanted to add a little touch of magic and wonder into this one as well. That's why the lily pads are growing high ab...
