We are approaching the end of the first third of 2017 and it means that Seasons are about to change. It’s hard to talk about proper Spring when there is still snow in the ground here in Turku but as an optimist I’m already all about the Spring. This weeks video is first of it’s kind of the Story Time Art videos where there is a “plot line” hidden in the image I speed paint. I already did these back in the Dood Elli Doo videos but this is the first one in English. How do you like it? I also finally purchased some gouache paints and I loved painting with them.
Kosmonautti (meaning Cosmonaut in English) is new beautiful song by Finnish singer-songwriter Tuomas Peurakoski. The song combines storytelling pop music to the celestial space vibes. Tuomas approached me last spring if I could create visuals for his single. I fell in love with the song right away so I was excited about the project. Tuomas talked about Georges Melies, 1920’s steamboats and star gazing. I got free hands to interpret those themes with the technique of my choice. Below you can see the final illustration. Be sure to give Tuomas Peurakoski a follow in WordPress, Spotify, Facebook and watch this meditative lyric video. You can also find a little traces of my design in the all the sites.
