Page 3

Well I post something old to avoid my blog turning into a cemetery. This is page 3 from a commissioned comic I did last spring. It was also a part of my graduation work.

the day when the snow melted away

No new posts here? I have noticed the same. Other projects have been keeping me busy. There's new pictures laying on my table but sadly I haven't got time to finish them. Maybe next week, or the next, or...

Meanwhile, you can take a look at my portfolio, which I put together recently. There's also some stuff other than illustrations.

I have been toying with the idea that I would try to write a story, a kind of a children's tale, but more darker one, and illustrate it with simple black and white pictures. And post it here one page at a time, whenever I have the next picture ready. Actually the story is ready - it needs a little bit editing though, I wrote it couple of years ago and occasionally it jumps in my mind, crying for attention. It has been in my mind so long that maybe it deserves to be done.

But time isn't my friend now days, it seems to be speeding towards the deadlines and I'm trying to keep up the pace. I'm telling myself that somewhere in the near future I'm not running all the time and there's time again for drawing just for my own fun. And time to listen the silence, now there seems to be noice everywhere. I'm not sure where it all came from, but I don't like the fact that I'm loosing myself in it.

I'll take you somewhere safe

When it was still sunny and warm, I said I wanted to draw some lighthouses. Well, this has been laying around since. I finally finished it, and it turned out to be an odd one. It's OK I guess, but not what I had in mind when I started it. A mixture of memories and things seen in a dream. But mostly it's done because of the hat the girl is wearing and of course the lighthouse.

It's winter again. Somehow I'm happy of all the snow and cold weather and the past couple of days when sun has been shining every morning when I have woken up. But the winter is long and you need a lot more than just warm socks and hot chocolate to stay warm... Today the cold stayed away by going through some pictures from last summer. Good warm memories.
