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 - November (wip)

a_nov_feature
Long time no (painting) horses! But now, here's one for you. I must admit all I can think of when it comes to horses is my upcoming first-of-its-kind Jasu Wonder World comic which is full of horses! If you haven't heard about this future comic yet, I warmly recommend to check out my Instagram . You'll find some sketches of Alex and Roberta, a young...

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...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - May (wip)

a_feature_may
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...

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 ...

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-...

IT TURNED OUT EVEN CUTER THAN I EXPECTED!

Feature-4
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...

A SONG TO THE MOON - COMMISSION PROGRESS

15_feature
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...

IT'S THE FIRST TIME WE SEE SEBASTIAN'S MOM!

Feature-14
I'm not even sure why I'm so excited about it. Must be because moms are amazing. Sebastian's story will definitely not be the last story I create where the role (and the importance) of a mother is on the spotlight. Now I'm officially too tempted to talk about the story plot and need to change the subject. Let's talk about the change that is happeni...
