It´s been years since the last time I printed fabric using a drawing of my own. I had forgotten how rewarding it is to go through the whole process from illustrating to making the screen and then finally printing a product.

I´ve had this weird fascination with internal organs, bones and such for some time now. I guess it started years ago when I flicked through some old anatomy books with awesome drawings and saw the inner beauty.

One night I couldn´t get any sleep so I started going through some of my old drawings. A few stood out from the crowd and I began merging them together in one drawing. This is what came out: a print called Sisin (Core). While creating it I felt sort of a pressure in my chest, a huge urge to take a deep breath, to turn things inside out, to see and feel what lays beneath the surfice, to grow something new from what you already have. For me Sisin depicts all that. Everyone is free to make their own interpretations or just see the visual side of it.

The same organic theme can also be seen in my other products. For instance my Half of Me – bronze pendant is a good example because the idea for the shape came from a bone.

Where does Headwing hang out when not being flown around Joensuu on my shoulder? Well, it has it´s own special place in my appartment where it keeps an eye on my jewellery and a pile of some inspirational fashion magazines.

I´ve spent quite many hours drawing in the last few days. Here´s one page of my sketchbook: See the beauty of your cave -drawing.

Like I told you before I was asked to join a fun project called Pisamaneidot testaa. Pisama Design sent me this cute little purse to use and then tell about my experiences. I already wore it to an Independence Day get-together with friends and then to a Christmas Village sales event in Joensuu.

(You can see Hañhi Design´s sales stand in the last two pics.)

The purse is made of durable denim with hand printed Headwing print. That bright blue lining is a cheery detail, don´t you think. Go check Pisama´s other products here!

Thank you Anu for taking the pics again!
