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...

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'...

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 ...

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 imaginar...

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 ...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - January (wip)

a_jan_feature
  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...

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 ...

HOW I BECAME MY OWN HERO

Jasu Wonder World company was registered on 11 th of October which, funnily enough, is only one day after the birthday of Naruto Uzumaki, a fictional character that this blog post is going to be all about. Years ago, around the age of 17, I started following a J...

YUKICON 2018

Yukicon_logo_taustaton
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...

ALICE IN WONDERLAND THEMED DRAWING - COMMISSION PROGRESS

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. Below you'll f...

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.  ...

THE CREATION OF THE CALENDAR ILLUSTRATIONS

calendar_wip_feature
To make life easier for all of us, I decided to put all the work-in-progress pictures of the calendar illustrations into the same blog post.  These illustrations were a lot of fun for me to paint, especially for the reason that they were very simple (considering my usual creations). Finishing one of these illustrations took me approximately 4-...

PENCIL PORTRAIT - COMMISSION PROGRESS

pencil_portrait_feature
It's been a while since I got a chance to create a pencil portrait. With this commission, I greatly enjoyed adding all the details as precisely as I could. For the first time ever I got to draw a person that was old enough to have some wrinkles on their face and it really was a fun challenge to draw them! Also, I'm very happy and pleased to notice ...
