30 Years Worth of Thunderbolt

A birthday card for a friend who turned 30 and likes Pokémon. And no, I see no contradiction between those two facts.
I made the drawing with colouring pens and a a white gel pen on a blue piece of cardboard. For your information: I’ve got lots of those blue cardboards so prepare to see even more blue backgrounds in the near future.

Synttärikortti kaverilleni, joka täytti 30 ja pitää Pokémoneista. Ja ei, minusta edellisessä lauseessa ei ole mitään kummallista.
Toteutin kortin värikynillä ja valkoisella geelikynällä siniselle korttipohjalle. Mainittakoon, että tulin hamstranneeksi kyseisiä korttipohjia melkoisen kasan, joten voitte jo varautua henkisesti näkemään vielä lisää sinistä lähitulevaisuudessa.

Spoopy Birthday!

A birthday card for a friend of mine who, as you just might have guessed, is called Susanna and likes ghosts.
(For you Finnish language/pun freaks: literally ”hui” is something that somebody yells when they’re scared, like ”yikes” and ”huimasti” is sometimes used in the meaning of ”immensely, splendidly”. And unless you haven’t yet learnt from my zillions of birthday card submissions, ”onnea” means ”congratulations”. “Susannalle” means “for Susanna”.)

I made the drawing with a a white gel pen on a blue piece of cardboard. Sometimes it’s nice to keep things simple.

- - - -

Synttärikortti – nyt päivän yllätyshetki – Susanna-nimiselle kaverilleni, jonka suosikkiotuksia ovat kummitukset.
Tein piirroksen valkoisella geelikynällä siniselle kartongille. Hauskan mutkatonta näin vaihteeksi.

You're Awesome Just As You Are

This year’s Valentine’s Day card with axolotls. In Finland the 14th of February is actually ”Day of Friends” (ystävänpäivä) so it’s not only for celebrating love but also friendship.

A black marker and colouring pens were my tools this time.

- - - -

Tämänvuotinen ystävänpäiväkortti aksolotliystävineen.
Tällä kertaa välineinäni olivat musta tussi ja värikynät.

Weird Bubbles

A birthday card for a friend of mine. This one was quite a mixed media experience: the background was made with colouring pens and a white gel pen, the bubbles are from magazine cut-outs with gel pen highlights and Popplio itself was drawn with Copic markers, a thin black marker and, surprise surprise, a gel pen.
Popplio is (c) Nintendo, GameFREAK and The Pokémon Company. One of the bubbles is property of a Finnish celebrity’s hair. :D

 

- - - -

Synttärikortti kaverilleni. Tämä oli melkoinen sekatekniikkaseikkailu: taustaan käytin värikyniä ja valkoista geelikynää, kupliin lehtileikkeitä ja geelikynävalaistusta ja itse Popplion piirsin kopikeilla, ohuella mustalla tussilla ja, yllätys yllätys, geelikynällä.
Popplio on (c) Nintendo, GameFREAK ja The Pokémon Company. Yksi kuplista on peräisin Antti Tuiskun kuontalosta. :D

Kingfishers are allowed to be lazy on holidays

You could say you’ve been quite busy when you realize in February that you haven’t uploaded last year’s Christmas card artwork yet. Oh well, here it is! It was made in Photoshop and yes, I traced the fish fingers packaging because the deadline called The Day When You Should Mail Your Christmas Cards To Get a Discount on Shipping Costs was getting a bit too close.

 

- - - -

Voisi kai väittää, että aika on mennyt siivillä, kun joulukorttikuvankin muistaa ladata helmikuussa. Oli miten oli, tässä se nyt on! Se on tehty Photoshopissa ja kyllä, piirsin kalapuikkopaketin törkeästi läpi, sillä olin kitupiikki ja halusin ehtiä lähettää kortit pienemmällä postimaksulla.

If you guys happen to have one of those fancy Tumblr accounts and, for some reason I can't understand, also happen to like my drawings, you can now follow me there, too. It's great if you don't want to read my boring descriptions at DA and just want to look at the drawings themselves. But I'll continue on submitting things here as well, so don't go and feel all relieved just yet.
Oh, and the very few text passages on my Tumblr account are half-Finnish, half-German, for whatever reason. Feel free to comment in English, though.

Jos joku teistä sattuu olemaan aktiivisempi Tumblrin puolella ja jostain kumman syystä on kiinnostunut kuvistani, minut löytää nyt myös sieltä. En laita sinne tylsiä selostuksia kuten täällä DA:ssa, joten voitte lätinöideni sijaan keskittyä itse kuviin. Jatkan silti kuvien lisäämistä tännekin, joten älkää vielä huokaisko helpotuksesta.

Hey...did you go by the name Raichusaana on Neopets at one point? A long, long time ago?

Holy shit, I totally knew you on there eons ago; I'm not even sure what my username was, haha.  This might've been me back then? though it looks like the account had its stuff wiped.  I remember we talked about pokemon a lot, though.

It's kind of crazy that we're both here ten years later.  I hope life's treated you well since then, it's good to see you again.

Sadly it seems I've already forgotten my password there, so I'm afraid I can't see your profile page before I've figured that out. :( (I'll have to try again in one hour, maybe I could still order a new password...
But I can still vaguely remember talking about Pokémon with a couple of users at Neopets. Those were really nice times - the community out there was quite comfy and there was always something to do in the game itself. :)

Thank you for reminding me of those nice memories, I hope you've been well, too! It's really a small world, even in the seemingly vast world of the internet.
