Spring Postcard Pop Up Shop

Remember Joulukorttikauppa: my online Christmas Card Shop? Well it’s not Christmas right now – even though it snowed yesterday in Finland – but I decided to open a Spring edition of the shop. There I sell my non-Christmas postcards and art prints during May 2017.  From the selection you can find postcards for Finnish celebrations

Birds Getting Ready For Holidays

You know I’m just genuinely so happy right now. It’s one month to Christmas. My Christmas Cards in Joulukorttikauppa are selling well. I’m excited about the short 2D animation film I’m working on at school. Next Saturday I’ll attend a Cat Exhibition TUROK in Turku Fair Center. Besides Christmas cards I’ll be selling cat themed art

Paper Art Snowflakes

Snowflakes have danced they way to Finland. My home town Turku is snowy white this week. Inspired by the icy stars I created these three paper art illustrations for Joulukorttikauppa: Ballerina, Snow Queen and Hot Air Balloons. See the Joulukorttikauppa – Part 2: Snowflakes video in Elli Maanpää Art channel to see how I made

Christmas Cards Like 17th Century Dutch Portraits

I had so much fun designing Christmas Cards for my Christmas card shop Joulukorttikauppa this year. Among other things I was inspired by Dutch 17th century portraits with an animalistic twist.

joulukorttikauppa, Elli Maanpää, 2015

Hello. I am Elli and I love Christmas. If my name is too hard to pronounce you can also call me Christmas Card Elfess. I’m grateful that Joulukorttikauppa (Eng.

The holiday season is coming closer. Do you know what that means? It means that Joulukorttikauppa volume 2015 has been opened. Wohoo!

One More Christmas Card

Jee. On Joulukuun ensimmäinen päivä. Joulukorttikaupan korttien lisäksi suunnittelin vielä yhden hieman erilaisen kortin tälle sesongille. Kortin kuvitus on kustomoitua muotoilua Turkulaiselle SM Maanpää Oy:lle, joka tekee pohjatutkimuksia. Whee. It’s the 1st of December. Besides the Christmas cards for Joulukorttikauppa I designed one more – little different – Christmas card for this season. It’s custom illustration
