Fresh from the press


Our latest book with Kerttu Ruuska was delivered last week. Yay! This week I will put up an exhibition with some of the original artwork at Toukka, a tiny children's book shop in Helsinki. Here is a peak inside the book.

My 1920's Birds

I'm participating in Make Art That Sells Bootcamp this year. The course started this month, and there is a different assignment every month, five altogether. The first one was to illustrate a cover for a colouring book. The theme was 1920's hairstyle, makeup, fashion accessories etc. Obviously, I love 1920's style. Who doesn't? The bried was so well presented and started off with a mini assignment. The sketch above was one of my drawings for the mini, just faces and hairdos.

                                                           But then this bird appeared...



                      So in the end my final piece had some really elegant chicks! They just took over.




                                                    With the cover design looking like this!

Character drawings


Here is a line drawing of a little boy that comes to my family classes with his mum and big sister. I told his mum that I really need to draw him because his style together with this wonderful smile just makes my heart melt every time. I will give them the original drawing, of course. The coloured one is for me to practice my Photoshop skills for an ongoing project.

PS. Spring is just around the corner!
