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

a_wed_feature
​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 ...

My Wonderful Artist Life - Comic Diary, Part 5

featured_cd_5
 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!

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2020

a_cal2019_feature
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...

My Wonderful Artist Life Comic Diary - Part 4

a_cd_feature
​ I don't usually add any text to the blog posts about my comic diary, but this time I just want to inform you all that there is a second gallery below the first one. You see, I wanted to separate the part of the comic diary where I start talking about my journey out of depression and give it its own gallery. Enter your text here ...

3 Commissions for 3 Businesses

a_comfeature
​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 ...

New T-shirt Designs

a_fofofeature
If you're wondering why there's been silent on this blog during the past few months, it's because of a little renovation it went through. However, the wait is over now and I can present you the work-in-progress material of my two recently finished t-shirt designs!  "Foliage Fox" The first design was a fox (surprise!). The orange-red fur o...

Wedding Portrait - Commission (wip)

a_wed_feature
​This painting took me surprisingly little time considering it was A2-sized. But then again, the commissioner wished the painting to remain rather simple and wanted the surroundings of the couple to be blurry. So, at the end, the only places where I really needed to pay attention were the faces of the two people, and their upper bodies. As can...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - December (wip)

a_dec_feature
  The stare of this wolf became just as captivating as I wanted to! Also, the bright red roses together with the dark gray and blue tones of the wolf gave this painting an atmosphere exactly as I imagined it. Obviously, I'm very happy about the way this illustration turned out. Though, I don't think this calendar has a single illustration that...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - October (wip)

a_oct_feature
Now that I have painted my first swan, I came to realize that when it comes to birds, I've mostly been drawing and painting owls exclusively. This painting became generally more blue than I planned but once I was finished I actually liked it more this way. I intended to make the painting more gray but I think it might've made the atmosphere too mel...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - September (wip)

a_sep_feature
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...

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 fas...
