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...

Over 40 Seals in One Painting - A Commissioned Watercolor Painting

a_ref_seals
 In summer 2020 I got to create this very detailed watercolor painting with more than 40 seals in it! Definitely one of those paintings that properly test my patience. The original size of this commission was A2 (59,4 x 42 cm) and the client had a few specific things she wanted included into the painting. Some examples of these are t...

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...

a_ff_feature
It's been about two years since I created my so far most popular painting, "Firefoxes". In this blog post I want to bring up the reasons I believe why it is so popular among people of all ages. The popularity of these happy foxes is based on the fact that it is the most bought design on all the products that I have. It does not matter which fo...

a_fhcommission_featured
Ever since I drew my first flower-hedgehog as one of my 2017 inktober drawings, the idea of a hedgehog carrying flowers in her back instead of spikes, has been very popular. This is why I wanted to draw another hedgehog for my coloring book (all the three versions are now available on Wonder SHOP) and now, I was commissioned to create this flo...

PORTRAITS OF A SHETLAND SHEEP DOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_sheepdog_feature
 If you follow me on social media, you've most certainly seen some pictures of a Shetland sheep dog a while ago. I had the honor of drawing four portraits of this lovely dog as a commission. It was the first time someone commissioned me a dog portrait, and also the first time the technique requested was ink drawing. However, since I'm ver...
