I'm back!

I know, it's been a while. I was going through my blog yesterday to see if there was anything I wanted to save before I kill it for good, but it just started to feel like a bit of a waste. It was a big part of my life when I was writing it five years ago, and although looking back I seemed to do a lot of whining I also enjoyed having a forum for my illustrations. Now with some distance I almost read it like someone else's story and felt a bit sad because I would have wanted to see what it all would have evolved to, even if it had been just a pastime and not a means to support myself. It's not insignificant.

So in the present I'm not making my living as an illustrator or a designer, and haven't even maintained it as a hobby really. I draw occasionally, but rarely on purpose and rarely on paper that doesn't have notes or something on it. I think I should though, so I'm not killing the blog. Maybe you'll hear from me.

While waiting for the comeback here are some pieces I saved from my other illustration blog that I did kill (referred to as "new blog" in the previous post):

I've moved!

You may have noticed that I haven't updated in ages. I'm not dead or in a coma, I just didn't feel like blogging for a while. I have been drawing, especially a lot of patterns (so much fun, and it seems like everybody's making them lately), and I'll be posting new stuff in my new blog very soon. Thank you to everyone who read my blog and commented on it, I really appreciate you all. See you in my new place!

Caught red-handed.

This is just for fun. It's full of cliches, but I'm standing by it defiantly! The background was heavily inspired by the wallpaper in the upstairs bathroom back home, I always kind of liked it.

The fix

This one isn't quite ready yet, I'm still thinking about the colours and stuff. I thought I'd post it now though, because I'm going to Lapland for a week to visit my parents and I propably won't be posting anything during that time. So, to keep the illusion of a steady stream of posting, here's The Fix!

Royal plague

I've been thinking about this image for months and now I finally got it done. I'm very happy with how these came out, I really like the floor and the cape!
Here's the digital version:

And here's the original watercolour version:

Ice princesses

I was going through some old stuff and came across this unfinished piece. I don't remember if I've posted this or something similar before, but I don't think so. I don't know why I tossed it aside when I did, I guess I just got tired of working on it. Anyway, it's definitely not one of my best drawings, but it's got some interesting elements, so I here it is. Maybe it'll inspire someone to make something actually good!
