I was accepted to study in the Master's Programme in Graphic Design in Aalto University! I will start my studies next fall. I am so excited to be finally able to study Graphic Design. I still have a few courses I need to finish in my Bachelor of Arts studies but then I can focus full time on improving my Graphic Design skills. : )
I have a new website!
annikapepita.com/

I use the website as my professional portfolio.
I now have a facebook Artist's page!

I made myself a new portfolio because my old one in dAPortfolios ran out of space. 


So what do you think? Does it look professional? Comments are welcome! I want to improve it if I can. 
I have so many fields I work in that now there are so many gategories.. Should I make different portfolios for fashion and graphic design kind of stuff?

I have been working hard one my Bachelor of Arts final work. I am doing a fashion collection! I am quite excited about it. I am also making a new comic. So keep waiting peeps stuff is coming. ; D
I have a blog now for my adventures in Tokyo!

So I will update everything mostly there so take a look if you are interested. I've only been in Tokyo for 16 days now but I have gotten so much done already! Hopefully this will be a great 5 months! 
Hello!
I am currently living in Hachiouji, Tokyo. I'm studying Textile Art in TAMA Art University.
I moved here 1 week ago and it sure has been a culture shock!
But I really like the buildings here and everything is so small and packed cutely. 

I am not sure how much I will be able to update here but I will try my best with the resources that I have. 

Being here I've realized how much I suck in japanese! and the people here don't really understand english that well. Well gotta just learn more I guess!

666 Watchers! Thank You!

UUh I might have not been as active as possible lately. But I will try my best! I've been quite busy lately with studying japanese and painting myself blue so no time to draw.
I'm going to Japan on 2nd of September! So there is only 45 days left until I fly away from Finland. I need to get a lot of stuff organized before that. I still don't have an appartment in Tokyo. I was thinking of staying in a guest house since I will only be there for five months and the place would be already furnished. So no use byuing all new furniture when I'm gonna move out of there anyway in five months. Does anybody have any experience of Guest Houses is Tokyo? My school is in Hachioji so hopefully I can find a place from that area!

I'm trying to enjoy the last bits of finnish summer I have! I will really miss Finland and my little doggy Bulma!

So many news!

I have been accepted for my student exchange to TAMA Univeristy! I'm moving to Tokyo, Japan on September and staying there for six months! I am quite excited. I just need to catch up on my japanese. Any help on studying japanese?
I will be studying Textile Art in TAMA Art University so it is a little bit different than fashion design so I am looking forward to what I can learn about Textiles.
I still need to find an appartment in Tokyo and everything. Anybody have any experience on living in Tokyo?

We had our schools annual fashion show. This time it was held in Kattilahalli. The video of the show is still being edited so I can't show it yet. But I have some pictures of the collection we did. In Taik The second year fashion design students always  do a mens wear collection in groups of 2-4. I had two of my classmates in our group Inka and Walter. We did a medival and army inspired collection that was all white. It was quite challenging to work on all white but at the same time I really liked it. We also had help from a few of our fellow students who designed some fabrics for us to use in our collection. The collection was a lot of work and I learned a lot about teamwork!
But here are pictures from the fashion show:

We had six outfits in the fashion show. The fashion shows are always such a panic fest. I can say I've had a dose of fashion to last for some time. : D I need to think over what to do next after we ot this huge project done. We worked on the collection for a whole year and I can say it was really a lot of crying and screaming.

But on a happier note, me and my boyfriend just got a puppy! Her name in Bulma. She is the very social and not afraid of anything! fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net… Having her in my life has certainly made me more active and experience the nature in a new way! SHe is half wire haired daschund and Half Jack Russel terrier. She just turned four months old and she is my little baby!

Oh yeah I will be at Desucon seeling my stuff at the artist alley again in 16.6.2013. Who is coming? I need some company! : )

Hei mulla on pöytä Desun taidekujalla sunnuntaina! Pöytä numero 10, siinä ihan keskellä sitä parveä. Ollaan :icongothfuu: n kanssa siellä myymässä. Mulla on mukana sitten legginssejäkin muutama kappale, että now is your chance!
Lauantaina pyörin ympäriinsä bodypainteissa uimapuku päällä. Ehkä tunnistaa, mutta ei ehkä kaiken sen meikin alta!

Olemme muuten tekemässä juuri uutta Anthologiaa suomalaisten taiteilijoiden töistä. Mukana on todella monta lahjakasta tyyppiä! Tämä julkaisu olisi sitten ns. jatko-osa Uni anthologialle, mutta nyt mennään suuremmin ja tehdään kaikki vielä paremmin! Että ensi kesällä tuleeulos. Sitä odotellessa!
Aa oon myymässä mun tuotteita meidän koulun myyjäisissä! Tokyo:n myyjäiset siis 30.11-2.12.2012 Taideteollisella Korkeakoululla, Hämeentie 135, Helsinki. Toivottavasti pääsisitte tulemaan vaikka vaan moikkaan. Oon tehnyt myyjäisiä varten kuumeisesti legginssejä! Painoin ja ompelin ne kaikki itse ja olen niin innoissani, koska ne ovat ensimmäinen vaatetuotteeni koskaan! Laitan legginsseistä pian tänne kuvia. Mukana myös printtejä, anti-joulukortteja, sarjakuvia ja kaulakoruja.

Sain myös pöydän Desucon Frostbiteen! Olen siellä myymässä :icongothfuu: n kanssa sunnuntaina 17.2.2013.
Desuconissa lauantaina meinasin tehdä itselleni kokovartalo maalit. pitäisi vaan tietää saako conissa olla periaatteessa "alasti",mutta yritän kyllä ehkä löytää jonkun bikiinin minkä päälle laittaa :__D

I updated my dAPortfolio! Take a look

I haven't been able to come much online now that I was in copenhagen. But I'm back in Finland now! Denmark was so much fun, I want to go back there some day. I want to go live in Christiania in some treehouse.

Oh yes during my visit there I got a daily Deviation! yellowpin.deviantart.com/art/M… My second one! I didn't expect it at all! I'm so glad for all the new watchers and comments. Humbles me all the time. I wish I had the time to say thank you to everybody!

I'm working on my new comic Black Lace Crow! I went back to my mom's place in Siilinjärvi so I can get some quiet time to work on my comic. It's gonna turn out amazing!

I'm coming to Animecon in Kuopio 14.7-15.7.2012. I'll also be at the artist alley! And I have a full table so if somebody is interested in putting some of their stuff up on my table it is possible! I am more than willing to share my table. And I am actually originally from Kuopio so it's nice to see Animecon come there too.

And in other news, I am going to Copenhagen 24.6-13.7.2012! It's gonna be so cool. Anybody here from Denmark? I have never been there so it is gonna be interesting. My school is paying for the whole trip so that is nice since there is no way I could afford something like this myself. So I have this Sustainable Fashion course there and I'm really looking forward to it. I had people answer this questionaire on tumblr regarding this course as well! I'm just gonna have to go to Kuopio right after I come back from Copenhagen. It feels like I am always on the road.

YEAH! So I got a table to Tracon artist alley for the whole weekend! I'm so excited! I'll try to make my new comic Black Lace Crow for this con! Still a lot of work to do but it is 8.-9.9.2012 so I still have over three month! I can do it! Oh yeah and I will be going there with :iconhaeym: !

And of course I'll be at Desucon too. And now I will be getting a ticket there too. So all is well. I'll be selling my stuff there on 10.6.2012 which is Sunday, but you will be able to buy The Rain Collector on Saturday from the comic table at artist alley where they will have comics from many different artists!

I've noticed that I haven't been making paintings and drawings like I used to. These days I only make clothes. I've been sowing like a crazy person and at one point I was making one piece of clothing everyday! I like to customize my old clothing too and paint and dye the fabrics and stuff like that. Getting new clothes that way is fun and cheap since I'm a poor little hobo so I can't buy all these fabulous new clothes. As you can see from my newest deviation, I like to make these print things but I can't use the printing studio at school so I'm stuck to painting by hand in my tiny bathroom..

Now my obsession is making jewelry. I've been making so many necklaces that I've lost count. I'll be putting up my lovely necklaces for sale on my etsy soon. So yes, I have an ETSY account now!

yeah it's all the same link. I only have one item up now but I'll be putting more up soon!


And still more! oh this is such a long journal entry I wonder if anybody will bother to even read this all..

I asked you guys to give me guestions before and as I said here is the video of me answering them!  www.youtube.com/watch?v=HO3diP…

And I also have these videos up where I show my sketchbooks. So I thought you artsy people might find them interesting! www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHTyFR… www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rR7Of…

So I was tagged by Truthdel

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create ten new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their pages and tell them you have tagged her/him.
6. No tag backs
7. No garbage in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you're reading this." You legitimately have to tag 10 people.

Then what she asked:

1. Favorite type of omnom?
2. Your personal fetish?
3. Any conventions you might attend year 2012 (or have already)?
4. Favorite type of character?
5. Color you dislike at the moment?
6. What type of headphones/plugs you have for listening music?
7. Your favorite set of clothes to wear?
8. What would you like to buy from Artist Alley?
9. What happens to postcards you buy?
10. Most resent embarrassing stuff by you (did somewhere, said something etc.)?

And I answer them this way:

1. I just recently removed most of the foods I ate before from my diet. And I don't want to think what I want to eat.. From what I can eat though I like eating bananas the most I guess. No don't say it...

2. Well I like to bite people and dig my nails into their flesh. They look like they've fought in a war after I'm done with them. But I do not like it when it's done to me.

3. This year I've already been to Desucon Frostbite. So far I think I'm gonna be at Tampere Kuplii, Desucon, Animecon, Tracon and Sarjakuvafestivaalit at least. I want to try and got to as many conventions as possible. Since conventions are my only source of money hehe

4. I like these crumpy characters that are kinda tsundere I guess. Like Gokudera from KHR or Dean from Supernatural. I like very eccentric characters that don't know really how to get along with people and just go their own ways and are mysterious in some way.

5. Aaagh spinach yellow and lime green! HATEE

6. I just use some plugs that came with my Nokia phone, but I like using my huge headphones. I used to have Hello Kitty headphones mossdash.tumblr.com/post/10129… but they were too thight for my huge brain. So now I use these white ones but I'm in the progress of painting them so maybe when it's done I'll put up some pictures. As a random fact I can say that the insides of the white headphones are blue because my haircolor kind of stuck into there (they were originally white obviously)

7. You are asking me my favourite outfit?! This is definitely a hard one. But I could say the one I had on here www.hel-looks.com/20120127_02/ I love that scarf, I always wear it and it's been through a lot. And I love that cape thingy since it makes me feel like a villain from some cartoon. And those New Rock platforms are actually really comfortable to walk in and they have springs in the platform! That coat is so warm and I it fits with everything well but now it's too cold to wear it.. And of course the lazer beam leggings! I wear those almost everyday hahah Under other pants at least since it's so fucking cold and I have to wear 10 leggins over each other.

8. From artist Alley I usually buy jewlery, prints and comics. I like A3 prints the most but some people just put their prices so high it really limits the amount of A3 prints I can buy.. But comics are my favourite I think! They are really rare in finnish Artist Alley's thought.. But sometimes you can find real jems! Of jewlery it's usually something a bit out of the ordinary, I don't like the whole glitter sparkle candy theme I see alot there.

9. The postcards get slammed on the wall next to my computer but sometimes I give them away as birthday or christmas cards but the prettiest ones I just keep to myself to look at haha

10. Well today I was at school and I needed two people to sign a copy of my diploma so I could get some classes compensated. Well being the weirdo I am I just asked the first two people I saw to sign it. The first one didn't understand finnish so I explained it all to her in finish and she was like "what?" then I was just like "just sign it!!" she: "Why would I sign it if I don't have any idea what it is?" then I just basicly gave her a scary look and she signed the paper. And then I asked some other random girl to sign it too. Well actually that wasn't even the embarrasing part since that's quite normal for me but when I took it back to the secratary or what ever she said the names need a clarification under them. But I had no idea who these people were whos signatures I had just taken! I looked at the paper really in despair and the secratary was staring to notice, but then I just put some random names under the signatures that looked kinda like what they had written there. So thank you "Maarianna Tartti" and "Manu Olof" for signing my diploma so now I don't have to go to classes or take the test. Score!

And I'm not gonna tag anybodu since I don't really have any friends but the truth is I just can't make up any guestions at the moment. But it was fun aswering those!

So I wasn't able to got to Paris last year because of bla bla no money but now I'm going to Paris! I mean next week to be exact. I'll be arriving in Paris on 14th of February! Valentines Day :heart: Guess I wont be crying alone in my bed about being Forever Alone on Valentines Day after all!

I'm quite excited. I can't wait to go see all the big fashion houses and drool at their clothes ( I have no money to buy anything but you can always look) and I'll be getting into some old fashion museum to see these old haute couture get ups. Oh my! And of course I'll be going to Première Vision (World's biggest textile exhibit thingy) which is the main reason I'm even flying over in the first place. Ah yes, this is a school related thing which is nice that I don't have to pay everything myself.

Aah I can almost see the Eiffel tower.. But hey if anybody happens to be in the area on 14-19.2 it would be always cool to meet people yum yum

I just deleted about 60 of my deviations. I realized My biggest fault before was that I put wayyy too much details in my work. Like the hair and everything was so scribbled out and polished it all just looked like a clusterfuck. I still have that in my works some of the time but I'm trying to make my drawings more free and not work on them so long so they wont become so crowded.

But how are all of you doing? I miss talking to you, all of my friends here in dA! Hey any of you who live in Helsinki want to meet up? It would be cool, I like meeting new people. Go to an art gallery or something fancy hehe.


I'm working on a new comic at the moment. It's going to be called Black Lace Crow. I'll put some more drawings of it here. It has a crow in it, like the name suggests but it's more of a psychological thriller I guess? I like making my little characters all messed up. But I wont reveal too much of it yet.
