About

This is a sketchblog, or an artblog, or more precisely "what-ever-I-will-make-up-in-my-mind" blog of one visual junkie based in Espoo, Finland. I'm working as a full-time graphic designer for Rovio and I'm also in the middle of doing my thesis in the Lahti Institute of Design. I spend most of my time drawing, playing video games (I prefer console gaming), watching movies/TV, reading comics and hanging around in nature. And I don't regret nothing!

I own the copyrights to all pics, unless otherwise mentioned. Do not use them without my permission.

If there's anything I can help you with or you are just silently wondering something, don't hesitate to contact me via mail jenna.tahtinen(at)gmail.com

"Hello ladies" (I love these Old Spice ads). Here’s a work in progress pic of that Frankie we saw earlier. He’s going to spend some quality time with his friends, Wolfman and Dracula. Sometimes you have to make really tough decisions when illustrating, for instance, drawing only four fingers. :- ( But I think he’s going to be fine.

When I woke up yesterday, I noticed that some people surely did find my Mabel pic, maybe that also brought couple of you, new followers. I hope you enjoy your stay! : -)

"Hello ladies" (hyviä mainoksia). Tässä vähän prosessikuvaa Frankiesta, joka nähtiin aiemmin. Joskus näitä kuvia tehdessä täytyy tehdä vaikeita päätöksiä, kuten piirtää jollekin hahmolle vain neljä sormea. : -( Eiköhän niillä kuitenkin pärjää.

1. Self-Portrait - Introduce yourself
So…I started a drawing challenge again, 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge. Although I decided that I’m going to do these when I feel like it, without pressures.
Long time, no vectors.

Robolab illustration for dA’s messengerbag challenge. A little modified in here. It’s supposed to be something related in cubism which is, to be honest, quite unfamiliar “zone” to me. But that was the starting point in this. If you like it, feel free and give a vote at dA.

Greetings to new followers!

And this is what I’m going to print, with different colorcombinations. I think I’m going to put this fellow (at least) on t-shirts & canvasbags.

Long time no-see. First; I’m out of pens & sketchbooks. I must go shopping tomorrow. Second: Here’s a landscape pic I’m working on. Something for my website. And I’m late of my schedule.
