Nearly Spring

I decide to post some photos taken this February while I’m now working for several work projects.

I try to walk and run every day at least an hour, but usually more. I have S Health application in my mobile, what shows steps you’re walked and I try to get over 10 000 steps nearly every day. So I’m walking and running around Töölönlahti and Stadion area a lot. I also visit often in Winter Garden.

Valentine’s Day

I did couple of sketch like watercolor illustrations and one vector illustration for this Valentine’s Day.

I don’t have much to say about these, but my wet watercolor turned out very sketch like illustrations. Handwriting and dirty look fonts were good with these pics. Happy Valentine’s Day 14th February 2016!

Chinese New Year

I went to see how Chinese New Year was arranged in Helsinki.

This was 10th year when Chinese New Year was arranged in Helsinki. This year what begins on February 8th, is the year of monkey. Chinese calendar does not use continuously numbered years and there’s many scholars what year it is starting, 2016 can be “Chinese year” 4713, 4714 or 4652. I anyway know, that I’m in Chinese Zodiac signs born in the year of Goat or Lamb.

Chinese NYE in Helsinki was arranged this year in Keskuskatu and it lasted 4 hours. There was coming international broadcast from China from their big NYE festival. When the year was just changed, about 6 pm in Helsinki, there was arranged also in the fireworks in Töölönlahti. The day was very foggy, so it wasn’t the best weather for fireworks, but you can watch in the video how it looked from Linnunlaulu’s side of Töölönlahti.
