Popcult Day is coming soon! I’ve done the usual social media marketing and designed the logo and banner above, but otherwise it’s some other cool cats that have been building this cute little event.
In the event I’m hosting a cosplay croquis workshop. Finnish info is below:
Cosplay Croquis -työpaja (Iija Eloranta) 
Croquis (ransk. croquer, piirtää pikaisesti) on nopea piirustus elävästä mallista. Cosplay (jap. コスプレ kosupure) on harrastus, jossa ihmiset pukeutuvat manga-, anime-, sarjakuva-, peli- tai elokuvahahmoiksi. Ja tämä on Cosplay Croquis: työpaja, joka yhdistää nämä kaksi taiteenalaa.
Ohjelman pitäjä on pitkän linjan croquis-harrastaja ja on valmis neuvomaan, mutta tahtoessasi saat myös piirtää rauhassa ihan itseäsi varten. Cossaajat ovat tervetulleita malleiksi – asento vaihtuu usein, maksimissaan 10 minuutin välein, nopeimmillaan vaikka puolessa minuutissa! Omia piirustustarvikkeita suositellaan otettavaksi mukaan, paikan päällä on jonkin verran lainapapereita ja kyniä. Jos tahdot nähdä miten piirtäjät tulkitsevat cosplay-asusi tai harjoittaa croquis-taitojasi harvinaislaatuisten mallien avulla, tervetuloa!

PIRKKO 1% 

Iija Eloranta, Aino Lehtonen, Rosa Nykänen, Jenni Salonoja 
2014

Bandidos MC Downtown is a biker gang which was established in 1995 in Helsinki, Finland. Our artists familiarized theirselves with Bandidos club dog Pirkko, who is a successor of Läski (“Fattie”), Rosvo (“Thief”) and Silmä (“Eye.”) Pirkko 1% is an audiovisual study of an individual that brings the community together. 

Art of Pirkko 1% involved photography, videos (Discussions at the Bandidos Coffee Table and Artists Washing Pirkko) drawings and readymade art. It was on show in the exhibition Väki, which was held in MAA-tila 20th-25th May 2014.

———— 

This was an interesting project to work with. Pirkko was one big soft sweetheart.

Popcult Helsinki logo and the first poster.
Popcult Helsinki is a new convention to be held in Helsinki in spring 2015. I’m heavily involved in the background forces and absolutely having a blast. We have a group that’s motivated, talented and wonderful to work with.
In Popcult Helsinki I work as the Head of Marketing & Communications Team and also as our Graphic Designer. I’m very eager to put all the stuff I learned last year on good use and I aim to improve. Keep your watch on us because I spy with my little Eye that we all – organizers, partners and visitors – are going to have a great ride with this brand.

KUUMAA! Soup Kitchen & Art Gallery TODAY @ Albertinkatu 19, Helsinki!
It’s Restaurant Day again and I’m participating with my classmates! We are holding an one-day-kitchen and art show serving some spicy pumpkin soup, glögg and contemporary art. All edible things are VEGAN. We open at 11 AM and keep the shop open till we run out of food. We are prepared for something 100 servings. 
I created this little cover picture for our FB event with the help of a lovely traditional Japanese stock paper. What’s more important concerning this blog’s topic is that at At KUUMAA! you can see some of my works, such as Napoleon kaivamassa napaansa and Veinnoksia live. Don’t worry – someone else has the lead when it comes to cooking.

Graphic Instructions for Fanfest 2013 – see the .pdf here! Please let it download 100% before you give it a closer look.

Fanfest 2013 was my first big graphic design project and this is the first graphic instruction I’ve ever gathered. I learned awfully lot from the project … Both from the mistakes and good things I made. Can’t wait to put my new knowledge to use.
