Environment: I freelance mostly from my third floor studio apartment in downtown Helsinki. Eighty percent of my illustration process happens there, Photoshopping by my desktop. Ten percent is spent between a Xerox machine and a scanner, transferring photocopied surfaces and cutout shapes on computer. The last ten percent is dedicated to procrastination.
