Newborn Youtube Artvlogger

Less than two weeks ago I said I’m gonna quit my Youtube channel Dood Elli Doo because of time issues. But after the decision I started missing the video making. I started to think if there would be a smarter way to do this. How could I keep on being an Youtube artist, an animation student, a Christmas

Business Pigeon

Hello. Hello. I uploaded new Dood Elli Doo video already on Monday but only today I added the English subtitles. I love how convenient the Youtube subtitle tool was so I’m gonna use that also in the future. You can click on the subtitles by finding the sub icon from the right down corner of the

Coffee and Doodling

Dood Elli Doo 2016

I love to sit in nice cafes and doodle. That’s what I’m gonna do a lot this summer too. This weeks Dood Elli Doo was about coffee shop doodling. The main speed painting was sketched while sitting in the window seat of the wonderful Cafe Kokko in Helsinki while sipping tasty cappucino. Then the giant

Dood Elli Doo

So yesterday was well spent selling my art and postcards in the Christmas Market at the Turku Messukeskus. The photograph of my booth is taken by my beloved Mr Kuula who accompanied me the whole day. Thank you for everyone who came! I promised that I’m going to list here in the blog also all

Studying Animation

I apologize for my absence in the blog but combining full-time-studying with being a part-time-Christmas-card-entrepeneur have been quite time consuming. The good thing is that I as I travel between two homes (Turku-Helsinki) I spend lot of time in the train which is a perfect place to write a blog post. So here I go.

Ad Leo Astra

Uhanalaiset_Ad-Leo-Astra_painting_elli-maanpaa_2015_10

Onpa sopivaa, että kirjoitan tätä blogipostausta Porista käsin, sillä tämänpäiväinen maalari-idolini on syntynyt täällä. Toinen maalaus Uhanalaiset -näyttelyyni on Akseli Gallen-Kallelan maaginen Ad Astra maalaus vuodelta 1907. Ad Astra tarkoittaa tähtiin. Ad Leo Astra ei tarkoita mitään Latinaksi, mutta minulle se tarkoittaa kohti leijonan tähteä. Maalauksen uhanalaisena tähtenä on aasianleijona (ilmeinen valinta hiussommitelman kannalta). It’s very
