Looking For Home/Room In Toronto

My way of focusing is to do picture collages and make them as my wallpaper. All these images are from Pinterest. So what I’m looking for is a rental room with nice roommates from Toronto for 4 months starting from Sept 1st – or Aug 29th. I’d be a nice non-smoking, clean, friendly roommate. Just making art in my bedroom. If you know anything or want to help me find a place please let me know. Thank you. I know I’ll find a home eventually and it’s gonna be amazing four months in Toronto, right?board_toronto-home_2017

Finnish Movie Biz

This week I was inspired to make a second video – a vlog about my last day as a trainee in Pyjama Films Animation Studio and about my trip to Helsinki to the premiere of the Finnish feature film Viraali. I named this new style of videos with the title: ON THE GO. Please let me know if you like to see this kind of videos next to the more art related stuff on my channel. Have an extra lovely summer weekend. 

P.S. If you’re in Finland you should definitely go see the film Viraali! 

Here I am at the red carpet with my avec the handsome Herra Kuula. Photo credit belongs to Viraali

Flowery Midsummer

It’s time to celebrate Midsummer here in Finland. It’s the most magical time of the year with the never ending days. Nature is blossoming and the colour schemes are gorgeous. Today I was inspired to draw this flower scenery I found on our leisure walk – to wish you: Hyvää juhannusta!

Piece of Cake

Plenty of things to celebrate. 1st) There was the channel’s birthday last week. 2nd) Today we are officially over 100 subscribers. 3rd) It’s Midsummer – Juhannus this weekend. So this week I illustrated a cake using Adobe illustrator snd Photoshop. Thanks for the idea Shankar. Enjoy!

Moving To Toronto

Lats Friday it was exactly one year from the first video published in my art related YouTube channel. To celebrate that and explain why I’m moving to Toronto for the Fall I did a quick live video in YouTube on Friday. If you weren’t able to catch me live you can still watch the recording. Let me know if you have some recommendations for Toronto. Thank you.
