It´s time to celebrate the very first birthday of my Piia Myller Design website! How awesome is that! What better way to celebrate it than to organize PMD´s very first GIVEAWAY. Because of the upcoming Valentine´s Day the prizes are in twos. You and your friend have an opportunity to win tote bags and plastic keychains with my new print Sisin (Core).

You can take part by commenting here (or in my Facebook page) or just send me email (designer@piiamyller.fi). Don´t forget to include your own email address so I can contact the lucky winner. Also remember to share this with your friends! You´ll have time to participate until 14.2.2014.

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.

Yet again I have to say thank you a million times to Esa from Olavi Creative for creating PMD website!!!

I don’t think human beings learn anything without desperation. Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting. -J. Carrey

 

During the design process my feelings usually range from overwhelming desperation to soothing and proud feelings of succes. It truly is a rollercoaster.

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you. – Frida Kahlo
