And some drawings ready to go to their new personal homes. One going to a children room of a lovely boy, to carry with him when he grows up, the other drawing goes to the children's psyhiatral department in Salo (TYKS).
As an artist and person, it always gives me a good feeling knowing that colors and feelings from inside, can be passed on to others, getting a social purpose as well. The more personal or needed somewhere, the more it makes sense to me to work as an artist. Art is not just building an "image" above others. I think we are way passed that as we are so many searching for a way to communicate about our feelings, sensitivity, vulnerability in this surroundings. Sharing is what gives strength, becoming part of something...
Going on to the next job :))

At the moment you can visit my exhibition in Västenfjärd library. The exhibition contains illustrational work and also some info about the project "Inside-out and upside down". The illustrations are from the latest book (Ystävyys kuin perhosen kutitus) and further there are the illustrations from the latest card series about witches leading their daily live. The cards are to give and to remeber the small precious moments we have and share in live.
As work started slowly now, I continue illustrating " Monsters in our mind". As upon next week, other projects will start and scedule will be full time again.
I enjoyed this sweet summer very much, being with my children, having nice visitors, making small trips,meeting new people, lots of sunshine... and hope you did too!
