THE CREATION OF THE CALENDAR ILLUSTRATIONS
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 4-7 hours. Sometimes, being done with an illustration, I had to ask myself if the painting really was finished, for it took so little time. I'm so used to spending days on one single painting.
I wanted the illustrations in this calendar to follow the cycle of the seasons the way they change here in Finland. If the calendar was to have a title, it would be "The Year of a Fox". All the original illustrations are A4-sized and on sale. If you are interested in buying one/several of these original artworks, please email me at
