One of the main inspirations for the Jörgits, is the city of Helsinki. It’s just beautiful. Over a period of four years I’ve been traveling back here to write and gather material for the book. Each time, I spend hours just walking through the city taking pictures of my favorite buildings and landscapes. I use them as reference imagery when I’m drawing but also to get in the right frame of mind as I’m writing. You also seen them show up in my Facebook posts.
I find myself in Helsinki for the final days of the campaign. It’s wonderful to be back where it all began. I took a walk this morning to get away from all the emails and Facebook posts to return to what this campaign is really about: making art. Here are some pictures that I took during my walk, one day soon they’ll show up as illustrations in the app that we’re all working towards.
Just 41 hours to go, then it’s all over, and the world begins a new. The End of Winter draws near…
