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.

Here’s a little something I made this morning. Just wanted to test things and try something different. I was inspired by Shane Prigmore and especially his Coraline designs. Damn, it’s hard for me to make something simple enough. The pose was just too stupid and odd in the sketch so I decided to change it for the final version.

It’s A-ME, when I was about 4-7 years old. I think I was very lucky to live around woods and rocks. I was adventuring in them almost every day so it is certain that I got a lot of little injuries. When I didn’t have bandages, I used birch leaves to stop my wounds from bleeding. My father used to make me bows from a willow tree.

And I’m going to NYC on the next week! How awesome is that!

Tässäpä jotain tänä aamuna tehtyä. Halusin kokeilla vähän jotain erilaista inspiraation lähteenäni Shane Prigmore ja eritoten tyypin Coraline leffan hahmosuunnitelmat. Kyllä se voikin olla vaikeaa yrittää tehdä simppelimpää kuvitusta. Luonnoksen asento osoittautui photarin puolella liian kummaksi.

Kyseessä siis omakuva, 4-7 ikävuoden kieppeiltä. Pidän itseäni edelleenkin todella onnekkaana siitä, että sain varttua metsien ja kallioiden ympäröimänä (siihen tulevaisuudessakin pyrin). Metsissä tuli riehuttua päivittäin, joten pieniä vammojakin tuli usein. Ne paikattiin koivunlehdillä silloin kun laastareita ei ollut tarpeeksi lähellä. Isäpapalla oli tapana väsätä jokaisena lapsuuden kesänä uusi jouskari pajupuusta.

Ja hei, meen ensi viikolla New Yorkiin! Kääk. Odotan kyllä jo innolla, että pääsen ottamaan kuvia paikasta.

Bleh. I got too excited while doing this deer-thing and I managed to ruin it with over-loaded details (common problem for me), but hey! DA’s messengerbag challenge voting ends today/tomorrow, there’s still plenty of hours to check (and vote) mine if you haven’t seen it yet. Right here: dA. And for new followers; Welllcome!
