Viimeinen Atlantis

I've been busy doing client jobs, mostly for Stam1na, and this is one of them: I did the illustrations, or maybe it's a sequential art, or a mysterious puzzle? I can't tell much about it, check out the website on a weekly basis and figure it out, as more things will be revealed.

Leaking Reality

It's been a bit of a slow season for me, or at least what comes to drawn art, but creativity needs some pauses from time to time. Or so I tell myself...

But there's some art stuff I've been involved, I did an audiovisual installation with the Kouvostoliitto-group for the Kouvola Night of Art last Friday.

Name of the installation was "Leaking Reality" and the basic idea was that the reality of Kouvostoliitto was leaking through some TV-sets into our reality. If you have no idea what Kouvostoliitto is, you can visit or read this article where I speak something about the Kouvostoliitto art project.

Here's some pics from the Night of Art.

Work in progress

Almost ready

art show

A crappy photo before my camera battery died. Pictures on a wall, but not just any wall, it's an art museum wall.

There is a collaborative art show at Kouvola Art Museum (2nd floor), presenting different works from various local artists, including some of my work too. Go check them out, the show is up till the end of August.

Sometimes you just need to draw naked women. I guess it's some kind of a man thing?

A mixed bag of postcards I scraped together from leftovers. Whether it's your friend, grandmother, lost cousin, dearest archenemy or secret love, I bet they all like to receive a postcard from you.
Or if you don't have anyone to send them, you can just hang the cards on your bathroom wall, where I heard some of my postcards ended up.

A set of ten postcards, 15 euros including postage (in Finland).
Send your order here: markku(at)groteski(dot)net

Also there are still some prints left.
