This was MyWeekThroughArt. How was yours?
The website is oddunout.com - I'm already updating content, but the site itself is pretty basic. Damn that CSS!
Wait, I have nothing to say! Oops! More coffee it is!
OK, here's the deal: I supposed to be having an art exhibition in the fair city of Salo, Finland, for the duration of the month of August, with my beautiful and talented friend Sini Tikkala. The problem is, I can't afford to pay the measley 150€ needed for my share of the gallery rent (ridiculously cheap!), munchies and wine for the exhibition opening event, and, damn it, for the transport of my paintings from Helsinki to Salo!

Here's where you come in. You've always wanted to buy some awesome paintings for a reasonable price, from a future-famous painter. You know you have. Please help me by buying something from my existing collection, right now! It will be a poor joint exhibition without the other joint.

Read the blog entry and see the pics, and please spread the word! ( ・ω・)

Oddlogy: Art for sale!
That's all, folks! :giggle:
(The previous post was supposed to read as sarcasm or self-irony, btw)

I just wanted to update the journal. Hello.

My Wacom is broken. Sad. ;___;
It's over. The year. Heartwinter kills all warmth and growth from the world. The Gallery closed its doors, the exhibition is over, my laptop is awaiting burial (when the ground thaws), spring seems pretty damn far away, and it's all going to be slush and rain and mud anyway. I need to fly away from here.

I'm half inclined to stick my house on fire and keep walking away till I find somewhere nice. If I believed in nice. But I don't. It's all evil and scheming and weevils and meh. My depression will never heal, and the only good thing that comes out of it is that people get to laugh at me.

But then again, there's a dreaming, stinky, fluffy dog sleeping on top of my cold feet at the moment, so I'll have to put off my arson for now.
:icondarthzini: and I have an art exhibition here in Helsinki from January 25t to 30th! If you're around, come and check our new paintings at Gallery Q Art Lounge, Runebergin katu 35. :giggle:

Be quick! It's only on for one week!

:icondarthzini: ja allekirjoittanut pitävät taidenäyttelyn täällä Helsingissä tammikuun 25. - 30. Jos satut olemaan lähistöllä, tule tsekkaamaan meidän uusimmat maalaukset galleria Q Art Loungessa, osoitteessa Runebergin katu 35. :giggle:

Huom! Vain yhden viikon ajan!
My laptop has been in and out of service -- at least the warranty is still valid. It seems to be working now. As opposed to my darling Wacom, which is finally requesting retirement in no uncertain terms. Maybe I'll have a go at fixing it, I'm pretty sure I can't make it worse than it is.

So, anyway, Oddunout and other Wacom-requiring stuff are now on hiatus.

But! :icondarthzini: and I have an art exhibition here in Helsinki from 25th to 30th of January. It's held at Q Art Lounge at Runeberginkatu 35. Come and check it out, and bring your friends too. Umm umm umm. That's about it. Pics from exhibition coming after we've had the opening. And, uh, after I finish my paintings. I still have a week, right?
It's that bloody time of the year again... Holidays are drawing near and I made my annual greeting video. You can enjoy it at Youtube. Arrr.

So, OK, Mugen the laptop is working again (for now), the Wacom isn't completely dead (yet), I've arranged for a work- and studio space at my friend's gallery. Things are kind of looking up. On the downside, no paintings sold (damn you, wealthy unknown artist's work collecting buyers! Damn you!), plenty of Xmas cards still left, and no jewellery sold either. Clearly, I suck. :giggle:

:icondarthzini: and I are having a Real Boy, I mean, A Real Art Exhibition early next year. If I can't even get my own back (as in, supplies & rent), I think I'll stop this artistry stuff and re-educate myself as something useful... Like a linguist of lost languages.
Nyt myynnissä Helsingissä! Käy tsekkaamassa Q Art Lounge Runeberginkatu 35:ssa. Sieltä saa myös hyvvää kaffetta.
My friend has just opened a new art gallery in Helsinki. Q Art Lounge is at Runeberginkatu 35. I have some paintings for sale too in the group exhibition celebrating the gallery opening. If you're in Helsinki (or close to), go check it out!
I started blogging again after a long hiatus! If you're interested in reading of my musings and occasional (read: regular) navel-gazing rhetoric, point yourself over yonder:

I just realised I've been on DA for 6 years - and I only have 15000+ page views! I lol'd. Maybe I should make more anime fanart?

Umm, I don't really have anything to say.

Happy midsummer? : )

I should be in jail XD

I have a terrible urge lately to do photoshop paintings!

Also, I'm going to visit Tokyo in August!

I need money. Therefore, if anyone is interested in commissions, drop me a note. :3

I really should get my jewellery and stuff online... in the off chance that anyone would be interested in sponsoring my trip to Japan. Waaa! But right now, I'm not interested in making websites or woring on my thesis. I want to draw and paint.

Muhahaha. Procrastination.



...



I'll never graduate.
Man, I'm not getting anything much done lately. Finally, the worst depressive period seems to be letting up (at least I'm updating Oddunout again), and even the sucky cold is starting to get better (although Oddunout is lagging a little behind - I can only do so many pics per day), but my ability to concentrate on any one thing is still missing.

I think I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for existing, DA, and thanks for all the artists for providing inspiration (and exasperation too, you talented bastards!).

There are so many things I'd like to be working on, and I really should be working on my thesis animation. Meh. I have some new jewellery under work (I haven't posted pics of them yet, have I? You can see some at the Overmorrow site. I dream of redoing my website so that I can have eeeeverything, including Oddunout, under the same roof. I want to make more polymer clay figures (as yet unposted, because my attempts are mostly just fucking embarrassing). I have several knitting things in progress (if you can call it that, when they're mostly laying around waiting for the knitting feeling to rear its ugly head), and even some more crocheting waiting to be done. I want to make some epic digital paintings, and I have some less epic pin-up pictures waiting to be finishes. I also miss traditional painting. What else?

Oh yes. Thesis. Siiiiigh.

Well. Onward to breakfast and beyond.
