New one for SooJin Buzelli at Planadviser magazine, based on the concept of “The importance of the right training/knowledge is power.” A pretty tricky phrase to illustrate, particularly since I needed to encapsulate both of those slightly different ideas. I like all the other sketches, but this is the only one that clicks with the concept. A nice thing with SooJin’s assignments is that I often get neat sketches that I can reuse later on for personal stuff.
Bottom is the color study, which, in some ways I prefer, but it made me too sleepy. Flashbacks of falling asleep in overly warm classrooms.
Ended up making another one, gonna make stickers of these!
"The Summer Book" is a book I`m illustrating as a personal project. This is a book for young and adults and tells about summer time on the Finnish islands. In this project I tried to keep the atmosphere of author`s illustrations and to add something actual and modern to create new representation of the book.
Mew mew, a rather catty stationary set appears!
Each set includes 5 sheets (1 of each design), 5 circle stickers (1 of each design), and 5 envelopes. You can choose from kraft or black envelopes too, and the stickers are kiss-cut! The set will come packaged as shown too /v\

[T]he crux of this project is based on the following premise, and not an altogether original one. The great dinosaur-killer, the Chicxulub asteroid, misses earth. However, the resulting world is not simply a long-lived cretaceous paradise - the Deccan Traps still flooded the sky with ash and changed the climate and atmosphere, killing off most, if not all, of the great dinosaurs. The survivors of such an event, however, are a handful of small therapods, mammals, birds, and even a few pterosaurs.
Do yourself a favour and read through the rigorous thinking that Simon Roy has put into conjuring the physiology and culture of his Dinosauroids. Amazing work.
