JWW 2022 Calendar - February

a_ref_feb22
Shouldn't be a surprise I like all things magical, and since it's all about "A Window to Another World", a little bit of magic here and there is definitely happening. Is it just a dream that the little girl is having, or are these beautiful creatures really passing by the window? One of the puppies is wide awake, and his attention has cer...

JWW 2022 Calendar - January

a_ref_jan22
The creation of Jasu Wonder World calendar has begun early this year. For 2022, the theme of the calendar will be "A Window to Another World". We'll be seeing a lot of different windows, that's for sure, and for January I wanted to capture the atmosphere of a cold winter day. I wanted the illustration to look freezing and warm at the same time. Bas...

a_ref_cal21illustrations

The King of the Forest - JWW 2021 Calendar, "In the Wonder World"

a_ref_apr21
I've painted several different deer, but this is only my second moose. My first painting featuring a moose is actually an illustration in the story of Sebastian; you see, Sebastian's teacher is a moose. This moose that I painted for the upcoming calendar is a bit more realistic, but not too realistic, since the calendar is ...

JWW Calendar 2021 - March

a_ref_march21
At the moment, I have finished 5 of the total 12 calendar illustrations for my 2021 calendar. This blog post features March, the dragon! If you've been following me on my social media, you probably know I have a great passion for dragons, thus I was absolutely delighted to paint this particular illustration. I deliberately chose to make i...

2021 Calendar "In the Wonder World" - February

a_ref_feb21
The illustration of February was very simple and took me only a few hours to finish. My main idea was to have a dark pond/lake in the middle of a forest, with everything dark and still. I wanted the scene to radiate silence so deep you can almost hear it from the image. The unicorn is in the center of the painting; it is the only source of light in...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2020

a_cal2019_feature
Finally I have the time to write a new blog post! Needless to say, the past couple of months have been the busiest of my life. However, now that the Christmas-sales-season is over, I have successfully made a schedule for myself, to get piles of work done, and I've made sure that this schedule has time reserved for blog posts too...

New T-shirt Designs

a_fofofeature
If you're wondering why there's been silent on this blog during the past few months, it's because of a little renovation it went through. However, the wait is over now and I can present you the work-in-progress material of my two recently finished t-shirt designs!  "Foliage Fox"The first design was a fox (surprise!). The orange-red fur of...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - December (wip)

a_dec_feature
 The stare of this wolf became just as captivating as I wanted to! Also, the bright red roses together with the dark gray and blue tones of the wolf gave this painting an atmosphere exactly as I imagined it. Obviously, I'm very happy about the way this illustration turned out. Though, I don't think this calendar has a single illustration that ...

Long time no (painting) horses! But now, here's one for you. I must admit all I can think of when it comes to horses is my upcoming first-of-its-kind Jasu Wonder World comic which is full of horses! If you haven't heard about this future comic yet, I warmly recommend to check out my Instagram. You'll find some sketches of Alex and Roberta, a young ...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - October (wip)

a_oct_feature
Now that I have painted my first swan, I came to realize that when it comes to birds, I've mostly been drawing and painting owls exclusively. This painting became generally more blue than I planned but once I was finished I actually liked it more this way. I intended to make the painting more gray but I think it might've made the atmosphere too mel...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - September (wip)

a_sep_feature
Yet again, the first time for me to paint an animal: This time a mouse. I did a little dive into the anatomy of a mouse before starting to work on this painting and for some reason I found it very fascinating how thin and tiny legs they have. Mouses look like fluffy balls of fur on four little sticks. That said, enjoy this little bal...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - July (wip)

a_featurejuly
This is the first domestic cat painting I've created during my career as an artist of Jasu Wonder World. I almost can't believe it took nearly two years for this to happen. And now I'm actually planning on painting some more domestic cats in the not-so-distant future. But, about that I will tell you more only when/if this particular plan gets ...

 Halfway there! (even though, at the time this post is being published I'm almost done with all the illustrations) The original being only A4-sized and the painting itself being relatively simple, this bunny took me surprisingly long time to finish (10-12 hours). The flowers around her were the most time-consuming. However, I became faste...

One more finished, 7 more to go! Honestly, I didn't think it would take this long for me to create these illustrations. That's why, starting this week, I'm setting some other projects aside until I have all the months finished. I like having multiple things going on at once but now I'm simply falling behind schedule so badly that I need to do somet...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - April (wip)

a_featured_april
Another finished illustration for Jasu Wonder World calendar 2019!This time I painted an animal I've never painted before: a sheep. I wanted the flowers around the little lamb to resemble the texture and softness of his woolen coat. This was one of those paintings that required so much of "gentle tapping of the paint brush", that I'd...

I'm so happy about the way this illustration turned out! It went better than just according to my plan! I wanted to express the playfulness of the lynx cub and the fluffy things she's being so fascinated about became just the way I imagined them. So far, all the plants I've been drawing to this calendar have been completely imaginary...
