Leggings

Well, these are fun! I noticed that Society6 has brought an option for leggings. Most of my Society6 images are not pictures that would work in leggings as they are, but I decided to give them a go with my Iconia Girls series, especially using their curly hair as an ornamental decoration.

Check out all the choices of these grand designs from my Society6 Shop!

Illustrations for the Alzheimer Society of Finland

I have made illustrations for a children’s story, a cartoon and an info booklet, and also a sea horse “logo”, commissioned by the Alzheimer Society of Finland. Texts by Heidi Härmä and Sanna Aavaluoma and layout by Mainostoimisto Maustamo (advertising agency). These booklets are meant for young children whose parents have gotten alzheimer in early age. The children’s story (The island of sea horses) was the most sad but beautiful illustration commissions ever.

It was also interesting to find out that hippocampus is a part of our brain plays important part in short- and long-time memory and it’s named after its resemblance to the seahorse (Greek hippos meaning “horse” and kampos meaning “sea monster”) – that’s why the sea horse in these stories.

More Cats!

They are sunny yellow, strong orange, beautiful pink, some white and black, and striped and all. And every cat in five gorgeous background colours. Something for the quiet, pastelly lovers and something else for the …eh… others.

Pattern design and project poster for Hienosäätö

Hienosäätö Ltd ordered a simple pattern design (several colour combinations) from which I made an A2-sized two-sided poster to be used in coaching and training sessions, with a “cover” on the other side and some writing space with assigments on another.
