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. I spend most of my free time creating personal projects, drawing, playing video games (I prefer console gaming), watching movies/TV, reading comics and hanging around in forests. 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

Some sketches, created at work & thesis seminar, bleh.

(Jenna Tähtinen)

Skull collage, tiny skulls from the corners of sketchbooks and notes. Just a little something. Feels like I’ve not done bigger works for ages and my thesis is on a break right now because all of this moving stuff, can’t wait to get the keys to that new apartment, it’s pretty awesome & the end of these too long work trips! More time to draw.Just finished The Last Of Us. It was a good game, even though I was a bit skeptical because I don’t like Uncharteds that much… but this was great!-Pieni kallokollaasi, sellaisia kuvia, mitä rustaillaan luonnoskirjojen nurkkiin ja muistilappuihin puhelimessa puhuessa ja niin edelleen. Viimeisimmästä isommasta kuvasta on kyllä mennyt liian kauan aikaa. Sain kuitenkin varsin kivan lukaalin pk-seudulta, ja siihen loppuupi nämä yhden ja puolen tunnin työmatkat, jee-jee-jee. Hyllytin suosiolla opparinkin muuttohässäkän ajaksi. Enemmän aktiivisuutta siis luvassa taas ensi kuussa.Läpäisin juuri The Last Of Usin. Osoittautui positiiviseksi ylläriksi, vaikka olinkin hyvin epäileväinen, koska en ole esim. Uncharted pelien ylin fanittaja.(Jenna Tähtinen)

I saw the photo which I took from the catacombs of Paris on my dashboard. :-) Had to reblog. I’ve said this before but it really was the most fascinating place so far where I have ever been. It would have been awesome to see more, the route for tourists was just a little part of that quite large tunnel network which lies beneath the streets of Paris. I’ve been looking for similiar places around the world, maybe catacombs in Palermo could be my next target. *sigh* Some day. I should be an archaelogist.

I made the pic for my portfolio site (http://www.jennatahtinen.com/) from these sketches.

And for finnish folks (or if you’re visiting in Lahti, Finland); There’s an annual Christmas Fair coming up quite soon at Lahti Institute of Design. Planning & making stuff what I’m going to sell there has kept me busy too, you don’t even know how much time I have wasted for the Christmas cards for an example. I don’t know why it is so hard right now for me to create something that makes me satisfied. Well, these phases come and go, I guess. D: BUT ANYWAY; Prepare to be there or be square, here’s the facebook event page: Muotoiluinstituutin joulumarkkinat 2012. I’m going to sell my Padre Muerte serigraphy works there and HOPEFULLY two different kind of Christmas cards, and MAYBE prints of that Robolab pic. I will make more specific post about this later. Welcome to buy or just to look some awesome stuff!

Ja lyhyesti vielä suomeksi: Varatkaahan kalenteriinne aikaa Lahden Muotoiluinstituutin joulumyyjäisiin! Facebookin tapahtumasivu, jossa on tarvittava lisäinfo, löytyy ylemmästä sepustuksesta. :-)

+ I got an very interesting job to do! Illustrations it is.

Playing with lasso tool is more important than sleep.

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.
