New Illustrations

I've been promising these for a few weeks now! I'm almost out of my busy schedule, just a couple more days and I'll have a bit of a break. I'm exhausted after being on the go since July. And it looks like it will start up again at the end of November. So while I'm having a breather here's a look at a few of my new illustration (it's been a while I know! But I feel like I finally know what I want to portray in my work and how to do it).

Kinoko (kinoko=mushroom in Japanese)

I had one more but when I uploaded it the colour was all out of whack so I'll have to fix it. My brain is too dead to bother right now, so you'll just have to look forward to it next time :)

I've been really liking working on the computer rather than using traditional medium. I just like the cleanliness of the lines and the vibrancy of colour that I can create. Also it means I get to be lazy and not bother hauling my paints and colour pencils out! And I thought that since I'm striving to show my cultural background (Japanese/Finnish) in my 'eeva margita' brand, why not do it in my illustration too. So that's where I've been getting my inspiration from and I love drawing the little folk-like patterns.

I'm also really excited to reveal my 2012 calendar!!! I created an illustration for every month, it's at A6 size and I'm so proud of it. I promise to show it to you very soon :) xx


  1. I love the folk like patterns, makes it look very fairytale-like as well. Where's the "kinsmen"? I love that one the best!

  2. I love the style :) the patterns are so sweet!

  3. I love that mushroom! I blends both folk charm and a kind of austerity I associate with Japanese design.
