Mountain Getaway

My this week`s speed drawing Youtube video is done with Winsor & Newton brush markers. I saw this view in Argentina Bariloche back in the 2006 when I was backpacking there. It’s hard to imagine that this dreamy place actually exist but it does.

As you can see in the video my cyan blue marker is pretty much dried out. I said this out loud last week and my boyfriend got me new blue markers for Valentine Day surprise. That was the best gift I could have ever had. Thanks to him there is more brush marker landscapes to come. Hope you enjoy my video.

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. 

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 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.
