Got these markers as a Christmas present and been practicing to use them. Mixed them with coloured pencils.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

#Google is trying to eat the web, one service at a time. Now they are even eating external news websites with #AMP.

This is a really disturbing development. Please resist, don't visit AMP pages if you can avoid it.

Some Christmas cards I made (Phew, these took SO much longer to make than I imagined!). Still few to make. I'll post them later. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

Haven't really done much with collage-techinque before, but I really like the way they turned out.

A small congratulations card, made on a bus :)

I made the animations for this music video. It was fun to do and hopefully I'll get to do something similar in the future! :)

if anyone wants to practice figure drawing I recc Croquis Cafe! It's figure drawing classes recorded in real time, and really good to use for warmups.

Ooh! Thanks for this! Super useful! :)

Yes, I've noticed it can get pretty lonely working on your own. That's one of the reasons I decided to give networking a chance, and it's actually not as bad as I imagined. I'm just really shy and meeting and getting to know new people can be exhausting and overwhelming. I'm quite social once I start to feel comfortable, but that usually takes some time. I've reached the conclusion, that it's worth the trouble though. I'm still not at ease with people, but it gets better every time.

And thanks for sharing your policy on how you use your name! It's all food for thought.

@Katharsisdrill
Ah, I was afraid someone might say that. But I undesrtand it. It's a valid point. I'm just hoping that it would be enough to attend some happenings and take part in projects. Or join associations (I'm a member of Finnish comics society as well as the animation one). It's also good for my mental health, not feeling like I'm doing this alone, but having a sense of belonging. Like I'm part of a group. These networks also give a lot of support and inspiration.

@EmergencyBattle
Yes, I think (in my case) keeping for example animation and illustration seperate might be a good move. I'll still have to think carefully about wanting to use my real name or a pseudonym. I've used both, so I should just make up my mind and choose one.

@EmergencyBattle
Thanks for your reply!

I think those are things I could easily abide with. Sticking with one name seems like a smart thing to do. For some reason I never even gave that a thought.

I don't like attention very much, and I'm not too good with social media. I don't even have Facebook. I'm ok to talk about myself if it's about my art, but I don't like talking about my personal life. The whole idea of making myself a brand is terrifying. So do you think it's nescessarry today, or will I be alright with just having a webpage with a CV and a Showreel, and being active in art community in other ways?

I understand you have to take some measures to gain visibility for yourself, but I personally live in the hope that my art would speak for itself. And that by taking part in projects and doing my work well would in itself be sufficient enough to make people aware of my excistence. And hopefully give me future job offers (talking about animation here).

We're having a course in school about working environment in the field of media, and had an assignment where we have to ponder if it's nescessary to "brand" yourself in order to make it in the art world today. Been thinking about this all day, and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts concerning the issue?

Make me a wizard and give me a familiar.

Jamie Hewlett or Dave Mckean. I admire both a lot!

I did some 2D VFX Animation for a music video. In the final video, the animation comes on top of a live picture.

The song is about Christmas and love (I know..cheesy, right?)

I'll post a link to the whole video once it comes out :)
