Illustration exhibition in Helsinki

I’m having a small illustration exhibition in Helsinki, at the Rikhardinkatu Library Children’s Department through November 2016!

More info about this beautiful library at on HelMet (Helsinki Metropolitan Area Libraries) site and more info about the exhibition coming soon.

Oh, and follow my Instagram and especially hashtags #piratecat and #jamerirosvokissa (not much there yet with those hashtags, but coming soon)…

Colour or color, who cares?

As long as there is some available, I’m ready to have it in which ever way it’s spelled.

And now it’s available: I have a new Coloria Society6 Shop for colour related stuff. I’ll have all kinds of colour related stuff available from my new personal designs to remakes to interpretations of old colour charts, wheels, etc (which I have re-made & vectorised myself based on the original material). Not to forget about the Coloria promotes collection, which shows colour related stuff from other illustrators and artists.

All profit from any sales will go in keeping my Coloria projects running.

So, please, take a visit to society6.com/coloria

Granny’s Legacy

Nostalgy all over again. These postcards / memory game cards include photos of the blanket my granny made for me about forty years ago. Vintage, yes, and still in use.

You may send the cards as usual postcards, but if you leave the backside empty and send the card in an envelope instead, the lucky one can cut herself or himself a memory game! One card gives you a three pair mini memory game, but five cards together make a good game with some challenge…

The set of five different postcards gives you a 15 pair memory game – quite challenging actually.

Five cards package 10,00 €
includes five different cards, one envelope, A5-sized transparent paper for writing a note or a letter, and one granny’s square envelope sticker.

Packaging & shipping costs are added (depending on where the package goes, in Finland & Europe 3€)

Request also individual cards (á 1,50).

Slightly Amused Monsters

Slightly Amused Monsters, III Aquamarine pillow

Slightly Amused Monsters, I Blue laptop

A few weeks ago I made an offer for one company, of the stickers for children, but my offer / illustrations didn’t get chosen. I wouldn’t like to leave these to my drawer, so what is the better reason to make them available as totes, t-shirts and mugs on my Society6 store (society6.com/paivihintsanen) :D

Iconia Girls

About four years ago I made these six line drawings to be sold at Habitare fair. The drawings were basis to my Iconia Girls series, available now at my Society6 shop. The first colour combo is black, white and red, followed soon with black, white and neutral; black, white and marsala (you know, the Pantone colour of the year 2015) and just black and white. (Later on spring also March, April and May colour combos will follow.)

Fruit Tree Series

New series at my Society6 Shop!

Fruit Tree series comes in green, orange, red and yellow colours with five colour combination variations of each. That is total of 25 different combinations! Available as an art prints, tote bags, mobile and laptop skins, rugs, pillows etc.

Colouring Picture Advent Calendar

There is a huuuuuuuge colouring (advent) calendar happening in Kuvituksia / Monsterium Facebook-page! And not for 24 but 25 days!

Behind each window there is one A4 sized downloadable (PDF) colouring picture – one each day from December 1 to the first Christmas day. You can download and colour them each as individual pictures, but you can also attach them to wall to form a really big colouring image: about 150cm x 105cm or 59,1 x 41.3 inches (if you print each picture in recommended A4 size)! You can view the original numbering to help you position the pictures – or feel free to mix the order of the pictures if you’d like to.

The pics are A4 size, but if your printer doesn’t support borderless printing, or you would like to print to letter size, please select a “fit to page” option from your printer. (You may want to select a thin border markings in your printer, if they are available, that would help you to cut the extra borders off.) You may also print pictures in any smaller size, just select prosentage in your printer settings. Oh, and they are scalable, so if you want to print wall-size pics, just go for it! (…In which case I would like to see one…)

A new window is opened and a new colouring picture is downloadable each day about 12pm Finnish time (UTC/GMT +2 hours) at www.facebook.com/monsterium!

New logo for Coloria

I re-designed the Coloria.net logo with this hand-drawn one, very opposite to the old, boring and flat one. Coloria.net is my website about colours (in Finnish only, sorry), and the remaking of the whole site is on its way. Also planning to utilize this logo to make some print stuff (totes, tees and also textured ones)… soon.
