Just In Time For Christmas

Have you gotten all the Christmas gifts ready for the Holidays? Well. I haven’t yet. Luckily there is still time to order some amazing unique gifts from my Redbubble store. I think I’m finally gonna get that Pikkupanda of Finland drawstring bag for myself – who said you’re supposed to only buy gifts for others 😉

Direct links to the products below: Cats Are All Around – Black – Laptop Sleeve, Pikkupanda of Finland – Drawstring Bag, When Words Say It All – Hardcover Journal,  Cats Are All Around – Red and Blue – Hoodie. And in the shop there is much much more.

Thank you so much for all the orders I’ve gotten this Holiday season. Happy December to you all!

Cats And Christmas Cards

Greetings from TUROK Cat Exhibition in Turku Messukeskus. I’m here today until 4pm selling Cat Art and Christmas Cards so come to say hello if you’re in the area. If today’s not possible for you come tomorrow instead to Turku VPK Christmas Sale from 11am to 4pm. I’ll be there with my goodies.

P.S. Thanks to my beloved Herra Kuula for taking these photographs and helping me with everything. 

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 prints there. That’s gonna be so much fun. I’ve never attended a Cat Exhibition before.

In this super fresh youtube video – which I posted last night to my Elli Maanpää Art channel – you’ll see me working on the Christmas birds illustrations for Joulukorttikauppa. Enjoy!

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 them.

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. See how I made the sphynx, buldog and frog paintings in the Joulukorttikauppa – Part 1: Animal Portraits video below. You can purchase these postcards in here.
