Shooting time-lapse photos of me painting

Setting up the "studio", before filming

Finished illustration!

Yesterday I was participating in the making of a short video based on Elsa and Lauri book series written by Kerttu Ruuska and illustrated by me. I made this little illustration of Elsa while a camera was looming behind me taking time-lapse photos. Kerttu and I talked about the books (and of great many other things) while I painted away. And my hand didn't shake, well done me!
Once the video is ready and published, I will post it in my blog.

Taking part in Lilla Rogers' GTS competition

Here is my entry for this year's Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search. The brief was to design sneakers for a fictional character, Antoinette from Brooklyn. The assignment was really exciting with lots of clues to Antoinette's daily life and the things she enjoys. So even though I didn't make it to the next round, I thought the competition brief was really enjoyable and I would buy my feather-patterned sneakers any day!
I even managed to overcome my problematic relationship with a certain computer software to get the final piece to look the way I had imagined. Luckily I am working next door to a Photoshop wizard...
