Seasons. October Weather Girl Portrait.

Seasons. October Weather Girl Portrait.

May I introduce Miss October Weather Girl. October is time for big change in Finland. First the colours in nature start to lose green, revealing bright yellow, red and different shades of brown. Mornings are crisp and sky is more often grey than blue as October progresses.

At the end of October nearly all the tree leaves have fallen and remain naked tree trunks. It is fun to wade in the flood of fallen leaves. It is time to look for gloves, woolen scarf and cover head with something warm. The surrounding changes dramatically and the whole colour map changes muted. The mind settles down waiting for winter to arrive.

In Finland each month has its own character and weather type. Four main seasons, but even each month has something of their own.

On the Street. Paper Cut Fall Look, HAM Helsinki.

Street Style Helsinki. Paper Cut Fall Look.

 This paper cut lady was caring of a group of schoolchildren in front of HAM, Helsinki Art Museum. They have a marvelous Yayoi Kusama exhibition going right now until 22.1.2017. A lot of dots to fall in love with.

I like the boxlike upper body combined with narrow long skirt. Everything wool felt material that suits for the fall perfectly. In her feet my favorites, black men’s style brogue shoes. You know, again one more example how Finnish women prefer the ability to walk over femininity high heels. And it looks good!


For Fun. InkTober in Instagram.

Ink Lady
I noticed it is Inktober time. Ok, I love ink so I try to put some black spots to paper every day.

It is time for InkTober in Instagram. 31 days 31 drawings. The point is to draw something with ink every day in October. And post it in Instagram. There is a list of topics to be drawn but it is okay to draw whatever you like.

I like people and fashion so that is what it's gonna be in My case. Or that’s what I thought in the beginning, but from day 5 I started to follow the given prompt list. It is fun and challenging to find an angle to the given word.

Paul Smith

Inktober day 2.

Marc Jacobs FW 2016

Inktober day 3.
This is something about Mark Jacobs FW2016 fashion collection. Well, this time this girl seems to be a boy. But who cares. Very inspiring collection it is.

Big hair

Inktober day 4. 
Yesterday I visited an art supply store. The lady behind the cashier gave me an impulse to this character.


Inktober day 5, SAD.

Sad about the situation that women in Poland have. Polish lawmakers push on with near-total ban on abortion. Women should have right to self-determination including abortion.


Inktober day 6, HIDDEN.

Hidden in to the woods.


Inktober day 7, LOST.

Lost in a city of patterns.

Iggy Pop

Inktober day 8, ROCK.

Thinking about word rock the first image that comes in mind is Iggy Pop.
