Some progress photos of my “modern woodworking” project, a sort of a viking style chest. The main aim of the classes was to learn how to use all the big and scary machines and tools of our workshop. I decided to make a simple but decorated chest to keep my medieval stuff in. I’ve never done anything bigger than a spoon or a cup from wood, so this was really interesting and challenging. :) More info about the pictures is found in their description when you zoom in on them.
O, Finland, behold, your day is dawning,
The threat of night has been banished away,
And the lark of morning in the brightness sings,
As though the very firmament would sing.
The powers of the night are vanquished by the morning light,
Your day is dawning, O land of birth.
O, rise, Finland, raise up high
Your head, wreathed with great memories.
O, rise, Finland, you showed to the world
That you drove away the slavery,
And that you did not bend under oppression,
Your day is dawning, O land of birth.
I’m going to cry.

Can we all take a moment to appreciate the beauty of trail cam deer
Oh deer, this certainly brightened up my day.
So there was a 2-weekend course for traditional leather tanning, and I decided to take part in it with a friend. The pictures are very much shaky phone-camera ones, but hey, atleast there are pictures!
Here are some pictures of the different steps along the way. Turning a raw deer’s pelt into a nice and soft tanned pelt :) It was hard work, but gosh, I really loved it and learned so very much! I ended up getting a few more raw pelts to work on in the future.

"With a voice wielding power of the ancient nord fart!"
I haven’t really drawn anything too seriously for months, so about time I guess? This has it’s flaws and all, but it was still really nice to get back into the feeling of drawing more than just tiny sketches. This guy is one of my own characters, Æskil. (he’s a northern witch who lives with vikings)
Been reading this wonderful webcomic called “A redtail’s dream”.
It’s about a finnish boy, Hannu, and his dog, Ville, who get’s trapped in a fox dream.
It has gorgeous artwork! I also very much appreciate the characters as well, I like the way Ville is portrayed. I find that dogs portrayals are usually pretty unsympathetic but I would not say that’s the case here.
It also contains the cutest seal and the creepiest moose.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, do so!

"A Redtail’s Dream" is a webcomic about a young man and his shapeshifting dog on an involuntary journey on the other side of the Bird’s Path in the realm of dreams. They have to rescue their fellow Villagers before their souls pass on to Tuonela, the land of eternal sleep. The comic updates on every day except on Sundays, and for more info take a peek at the about page, it’s got some general information about the comic and a little FAQ section. But now: let’s get some comic-reading going,and I hope you’ll get some enjoyment out of this project of mine!
This is absolutely one of my favourites ! <3 You should totally read it
this is absolutely wonderful comic indeed!
I went out for a bikeride around town to get to know the area a bit better, and boy, this place is actually really pretty and inspiring! The old stone church is especially cool, I eally need to find out about it more sometime. There was a huge load of jackdaws sitting on top of the church’s roof.
Before and after. The only thing this place is missing are my cats… But I wouldn’t take them into a dorm room, it’s way too little space for 2 big kitties. Things are shaping up nicely otherwise though! :)
Here’s some of the things I made at work. Paintings woolen animals and owl-keychains. most things made from recycled things such as copper wire from old cables for those chains on the owls. I really enjoyed the work, and I will continue to make these litlle owlets in different forms. More on that later on :)
I just moved 450km from home into a dorm for school, (which starts tomorrow, eep!) and I’ll put updates about that in the queue so that they roll out every other day or so!
