Teini-ikina by yellowpin


I started this painting weeks ago but just finished it now.

I made this piece to fit the topic of Teeanage life. I reflected my own experiences as a teenager in this picture. I was a very shy and quiet person growing up. I had a few friends but I prefered the company of my Game Boy Color and Pokemon Crystal over others.

I was so stricken on being perfect that I wanted to be the best at everything. After since I’ve pretty much kicked this habit and just become a lazy ass who has no motivation for anything. I was always good at school I got all 10 in my tests but what I wasn’t good at was Gym. I was a chubby kid growing up but when I hit puberty I thought this is no good I have to be skinny to be perfect. So I would exercise many hours a day to try to loose weight and count my calories. Anorexia is pretty much thriving for perfection but it is something you will never achieve. It is just a never ending battle.

I wanted to paint something traditionally today since it's been a while. So I made this quick picture of Dino playng soccer.

Hey, I made this cute little pixel monster.
I have started to get into pixel art so fun yay. Took me so many hours to make though. I am too much of a perfectionist I just keep polishing until every pixel is in the right place. I Want to do more pixel art though and maybe some animation to them also wow.
SHINPAI 7 by yellowpin
I am wearing a hanten style padded coat made of viscosesatin with digital print and a wrap dress.

I designed, made the pattern, sew and did the fabric for this garment myself.

Shinpai is my Bachelor of Arts Graduation Fashion Collection.
The collection is inspired by japanese traditional pattern making. The strongest visual element is the comic print I drew which illustrates the life of a girl suffering of depression, social anxiety and panic disorder.

The collection consists of 10 garments of which 4 are reversible. The patterns are made using zero waste principle so no fabric is wasted. All the clothes are adjustable in size meaning people from sizes S-L can wear the clothes by adjusting the strings. The clothes are also unisex in design so that everybody regardless of gender or size can wear these clothes. All the materials used are vegan.

Komerot by yellowpin
I did the cover for the book "Komerot - kadotettujen nuorten tarinoita" , which is a book about young adults who have become reclused form society. The book is written by Lilja Tamminen and Jalmari Eskelinen.
It was very interesting to be part of this project and learning more about the hikikomoris of Finland as well.

Just managed to go through my +2,000 messages and I cleaned up my watchlist as well. So many poeple have gone unactive here (and I guess I am one of them). I am quite unactive in most social media sites, but you can find my most resent artworks the easiest from my blog  
I am having a hard time right now. I am trying to graduate from school but the subject I am studying isn't very interesting to me anymore and I don't think I want to work in that field after I graduate. I have no idea what the future holds up for me. But life is more exciting if you don't plan it too much. I need to learn how to stress less.

Hey! I got your "The rain collector" comic from the comics festival, and I must say it's really great. I love the style of art in it. The hand made greyscales, the thick line art along side the amount of detail in all the panels, made it feel very warm and relaxed. Not stiff at all. Really awesome!
I also really enjoyed the twist ending. At first I felt the story was a bit basic perhaps, but the twist really made me go "AAA! Cool!", and also the VERY end with the well, felt a bit like an end in a Grimm story :A
I really liked it. The only constructive criticism I guess would be that the English dialogue at some points felt a bit like it wasn't the characters mother tongue. Often no matter how good one is with a foreign language, it still kinda feels like a foreign language, you know. But that is a very minor point. I guess personally I would have liked this more in Finnish :A
Good job all around! I hope to see more of your stuff in the future.

Hei kiitos paljon kommentistasi! On ihana aina kuulla lukijoiden mielipiteitä. Sarjakuva on tosiaan aika vanha ja meitinkin, että tulevaisuudessa teen sarjakuvani varmaan suomeksi. Olen tennyt paljon myös lyhyitä mykkä sarjakuvia, koska dialogit joita luon eivät aina tunnu niin luonteikkailta englanniksi. Mutta hienoa, että pidit Sateenkerääjästä! : )

Moi, luin tänään koulussani (IJKK) sarjakuvan transgender aiheesta ja siinä taisi olla myös sun tekemä lyhyt sarjispätkä, ja halusin vaan sanoa että sen piirustustyyli ja tarina oli hieno, sen sanoma kosketti sydäntä; "just be yourself".
