Line drawing and coloured pencil illustration of a curious orange fox with pale purple crystals growing from its back by Mervi Emilia Eskelinen

Is a human,
shape of an animal,
audacity of a god,

anything more miraculous
than accidental debris?

Comic

This simple black and white webcomic deals with mundanity of life in my dry and sometimes poetic style.

View the comic

4 panel black and white comic in which a person looks for stuff under the bed, in a bookshelf, outside the door and in the wardrobe. Another person asks: "What are you looking for?" The first person answers: "My motivation."

Creating beautiful, strange and sustainable

I'm dedicated to bringing this world more art, creativity and weirdness, while advocating sustainability and slow business instead of unlimited growth.
