I’m going to have my 1st Birthday soon. Jey! Year ago I published first video in the Elli Maanpää Art YouTube Channel – even though the name at first was Dood Elli Doo. I did a presentation for school of my first year in YouTube. I though it might interest you as well so I walk you trough it on this weeks video. I talk about the things I’ve learned so far. There is also bonus speed drawing of a Wonder Woman with a twist. Congratulations to all who are graduating this weekend! You did it. We are all superhero of our own life.
Here is the presentation also in a PDF format 👉 https://indd.adobe.com/embed/3c100231-102c-4aff-8ab9-7e20a23df379?startpage=1&allowFullscreen=true
I couldn’t keep the secret anymore. I did one more art video before Christmas. Happy Holidays to you guys!
Finnish song bird Saara Aalto competes in the finals of X Factor UK this evening. She is amazingly talented and she has fought hard for her success. I’m rooting for her big time or as we say in Finnish: “Näytä niille närhen munat Saara” Watch her breathtaking performances for example here and here.
Happy Independence Day Finland! Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää Suomi! Independent Finland turns 99-years-old today. So our country is a grand old lady. Grateful to be Finn.
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 card entrepeneur and freelancer illustrator at the same time? The obvious response was that if I could combine my projects I could still keep on doing all of them. So say hello to my new born Youtube channel Elli Maanpää Art where I share making of videos of my art projects. The first video is in English and I’m still not sure how I feel about my accent. What do you think? Can I do this? I’m also looking dazzling in the thumbnail. I love it. Life is more fun when you are a bit goofy.
Last Thursday I posted the last (for now) Dood Elli Doo on Youtube. It took 2-years of pondering before I got the channel started but it took only couple of days to decide to put it off.
I love doing these artsy videos but each one take 2 whole work days to accomplish. So now when animation classes start again and I need to find work that would pay the bills – like for example concentrate on Joulukorttikauppa – I just have to put Dood Elli Doo on a break.
Thank you so much for your support and likes! It means everything to me.
Pokemon Go seems to be everywhere. It even took over Dood Elli Doo today. But whoms head it took?
P.S. Remember to turn on the CC for English subtitles. And let me know if you’d like me to do a video in English with my Finnish rally accent.
