Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - July (wip)

a_featurejuly
 This is the first domestic cat painting I've created during my career as an artist of Jasu Wonder World. I almost can't believe it took nearly two years for this to happen. And now I'm actually planning on painting some more domestic cats in the not-so-distant future. But, about that I will tell you more only when/if this particular plan...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - June (wip)

a_featurejune
Halfway there! (even though, at the time this post is being published I'm almost done with all the illustrations) The original being only A4-sized and the painting itself being relatively simple, this bunny took me surprisingly long time to finish (10-12 hours). The flowers around her were the most time-consuming. However, I became faster with...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - May (wip)

a_feature_may
One more finished, 7 more to go!  Honestly, I didn't think it would take this long for me to create these illustrations. That's why, starting this week, I'm setting some other projects aside until I have all the months finished. I like having multiple things going on at once but now I'm simply falling behind schedule so badly that I need to do...

NEW ARTIST PROFILE PICTURE (work-in-progress)

app_feature
I've been thinking of creating a new artist profile picture for almost a year now. I don't exactly know where I got the time to work on it but above all I'm happy that it's finally done. Without further elaborating on my busy schedule, let me offer you the work-in-progress material of this new artist profile picture. At first my plan...

PORTRAITS OF A SHETLAND SHEEP DOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_sheepdog_feature
 If you follow me on social media, you've most certainly seen some pictures of a Shetland sheep dog a while ago. I had the honor of drawing four portraits of this lovely dog as a commission. It was the first time someone commissioned me a dog portrait, and also the first time the technique requested was ink drawing. However, since I'm ver...

UMICON 2018

a_umicon_featured
Travelling to Turku to attend Umicon was one of those kinds of trips where I basically spend the whole day on a train. Waking up before 5 am, getting to the train before 6 am, sleeping the few first hours of the way, then killing time and changing the train until finally, late in the afternoon, I arrive to my destination.  Usual...

YUKICON 2018

Yukicon_logo_taustaton
Yukicon, which was held in Helsinki during February, was my first event in 2018. I'd gladly have participated Desucon Frostbite but when I contacted the organizers all their tables had already been reserved. So, going to Yukicon it had been a while since I had been in any event and I was very happy to get away from my little apartment for...

INKTOBER 2017

a_inktober_featured
​I might have told you before that one of my favorite quotes is "Better late than never". Today, I'll once again take that quote to a good use, for I'm about to share a blog post about my last year's Inktober drawings. Yeah, it was ONLY 5 months ago, but at least we didn't get to this year's inktober yet, so it's definitely not too late yet. That s...

ALICE IN WONDERLAND THEMED DRAWING - COMMISSION PROGRESS

aiw_feature
The commissioner wanted me to create "Alice in Wonderland"-themed drawing for their friend. The man in the drawing was to resemble one of her original characters and there were a few items the commissioner wanted to include into the artwork, but everything else I could decide on my own as long as the drawing would maintain its theme. Below you'll f...

ABOUT TIME I GAVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THIS

feature
It's Sebastian work-in-progress update, of course! As you might know, I haven't had time to work on the illustrations as much as I thought I would, but slowly and steadily there has been some progress there too. I'm offering you all the sneak peeks I could find, being careful not to reveal too much. I only have 8 illustrations left now and even tho...

I FORGOT TO POST THESE LAST YEAR

santa_wip_feature
It's been a year since I created a design for Jasu Wonder World Christmas t-shirt and I suddenly came to realize that I never posted the work-in-progress pictures of that particular painting! Better late than never is one of my favorite quotes so here we go: From the very first sketch to the finished design that then got printed on t-shirts.  ...

THE CREATION OF THE CALENDAR ILLUSTRATIONS

calendar_wip_feature
To make life easier for all of us, I decided to put all the work-in-progress pictures of the calendar illustrations into the same blog post.  These illustrations were a lot of fun for me to paint, especially for the reason that they were very simple (considering my usual creations). Finishing one of these illustrations took me approximately 4-...

PENCIL PORTRAIT - COMMISSION PROGRESS

pencil_portrait_feature
It's been a while since I got a chance to create a pencil portrait. With this commission, I greatly enjoyed adding all the details as precisely as I could. For the first time ever I got to draw a person that was old enough to have some wrinkles on their face and it really was a fun challenge to draw them! Also, I'm very happy and pleased to notice ...

MORE OFFICIAL VIEW ON TRACON

Feature-21
Even after starting "My Wonderful Artist Life Comic Diary", I decided to keep making these traditional blog posts every now and then to give you people a "more official" view on things, since the comic diary tends to be not-too-serious kind, offering my own artistic view on things. So, today I kindly present you: Tracon, 8.-10.8.2017 Above a couple...

TWO EVENTS IN ONE POST

Feature-17
 It's been three weeks since Ropecon, and a week since I returned from Worldcon. That's plenty of time to recover enough to finally write something about those two events which both took place in Helsinki, at Expo and Convention Centre. Honestly, it feels to me that Ropecon was a little warm-up before "the real deal", Worldcon. The three days ...

IT TURNED OUT EVEN CUTER THAN I EXPECTED!

Feature-4
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...

A SONG TO THE MOON - COMMISSION PROGRESS

15_feature
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...

THE EVOLUTION OF MY TABLE

Feature-13
It's been 9 months since I attended an event for a first time to sell my products (Kitacon 2016). Now, let's take a look at how it all started: As can be seen above, my first representation wasn't that appealing but at least all the products were there. Such thing as a table cloth hadn't even crossed my mind and so I ended up using a blanket that I...
