I am currently creating a video on the Backhasten, and was wondering if I could borrow your picture for the video? I will provide your information in both the movie and description.

Thanks for this drawing (even if I merely stumble on it): I've instead read about the Puca, and it's truly interesting to read about the differences between Puca and Backahasten (sheesh, that name's hard to spell :XD:)

Hello, thank you for your interest towards my pictures and especially big thank you for asking permission!
I'm afraid I need to decline your request, though, "surprise project" doesn't really tell me what kind of usage would this picture end up in. Also, as the original has also already been sold, I feel this art piece is supposed to be left in rest. I'm sorry, I hope you find some other nice picture for your surprice project. :)

It was a non-commercial rpg game based off the Backahasten legend and mostly just wanted to use to view like a painting in a house inside the game. but its no problem ^.^ i understand and won't use it.

And I was surprised to see you purchase both this and Mothmarten :D I hope you will like them, I think they both look better in real life than scanned. Especially Mothmarten (wow it took me half a year to convince myself to sell it.)

Just wanted to say that I got them at the 24th December and it was an awesome Christmas gift for me. I was showering and then my boyfriend called "a letter from Rovaniemi!" and I was like "What? There wasn't anybody of my family this year in Rovaniemi to send a card from Santa Claus." Usually my mother sends them to all the family, because she's almost every year all around Scandinavia. Then I found out it was your letter, and that was even more awesome :la:

I just love both paintings and I'm pretty sure that they won't be the last thing I bought from you. Thanks so much for creating art that speaks from my soul :hug:

It's awesome to hear this story! I suppose me living in "home of Santa Claus" makes it even more funny coincidence :D Also it sounds nice your mother can travel all around Scandinavia/Nordic countries. I'm pretty strong homebody but I would love to get to visit Norway again.
And of course I'm happy you like the paintings! Subject-wise I'm happier to my works that ever, I draw what my soul whispers to me and if someone else's soul can relate, it's only a positive thing.

You aren't far off, both of them were in my mind while drawing this! :) I like the certain... "soft eerie" feeling in their illustrations.

Oi kiitoksia :D Mie vähän epäilin että teenkö liian valkeaa ja tuleeko siitä tarpeeksi veden näköistä. Hyvä että onnistuin!
