Marika Korkeila, a style blogger and fashion stylist just featured me in her blog. Have a look!
On a side note, my travel fever to London just multiplied by millions. Just look at all those pictures! I have had a visit to London on my dream list for a loooong time, maybe one day…
One of my favorite bloggers, Kriselda, made a blog post about my collaboration with Vallila. We went together to Vallila showroom to check out their new collections and get inspired.
Kriselda is a stylist and visualist and is particularly good with camera, hence it is no surprise the pictures she took are great. She also shot a short video about my Vallila project, have a look below!
Here is the blog post on www.KRISELDA.com, hurry up to participate, there is an opportunity to win a fashion illustration and a Vallila pillow! Simply enter in the comments field which pillow is your favorite (ruby, sapphire or red shoe).
Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with Faber-Castell, as the result the KARLBOX was created. The limited edition (2500 sets in the world) contains pencils, crayons, pastels, fineliners… It’s a dream! Who wouldn’t want to have a KARLBOX?
The box is pricey, though. And now Faber-Castell announced a world wide competition to win a KARLBOX! I saw so many artists and illustrators participating in Instagam, I just had to join in on the fun!
The contest is themed “Karl at Work” and it needed to be an illustration of him, everything Chanel, etc.
I decided to draw beautiful Kristen Stewart – I really like the red eye-shadow look for Chanel make-up campaign. And, of course Karl himself is in the illustration – doing his magic. I drew an enormous paint brush and Faber-Castell pencil as his tools!
This is a birthday present illustration of a beautiful young lady – Tilda. She is a daughter of my colleague, who ordered this portrait from me.
I am very proud and honoured to announce my collaboration with Vallila, one of the leading textile companies in Finland. I teamed up with Vallila to design a capsule collection for SS17 consisting of decorative cushions with my fashion illustrations.
“One star guest designer this season is fashion illustrator Olesja Hännikäinen: her charming and elegant decorative pillow patterns bring a breath of haute couture to the collection. All cushions are pattern matched.” -Vallila
You can buy the products in Vallila stores and online.
