I have been updating my web portfolio, and added a lot of my latest works from Me Naiset magazine. I have had the pleasure to work for Me Naiset for last 3,5 years and have really enjoyed. You can find the layouts which I have made from here and here.
Finally the book I made together with Vuokko Hurme, “Leikkimään, teippi!” (“Let’s play, tape!”) is out! You can find the book in book stores, libraries and forexample here: www.sets.fi. For more images click here. Schildts & Söderströms, 2016
Happy 1st of May! This little stop motion animation we made for Me Naiset magazine with my colleagues Aino Korpela, Helmi Järvinen and Jutta Aaltio. It was fun!
I have been working lately for a very nice children’s book with my old class mate, journalist and kids culture specialist Vuokko Hurme. The story of Leila playing with tape, “Leikkimään, teippi!”, will be published August 2016 by Schildts & Söderströms.
A cool work for Me Naiset women’s weekly magazine, issue 44/2015 is ready. The article was about parfumes for different moods,
and I made the collage style illustrations for it. You can watch all the pictures and ready layouts from here.

Warm August nights are here, and I have been working on lately on a small animation project based on my children’s book illustrations. We were sitting with my good friend and super patient co-worker Nina Farsen in a small dark room for 2 weeks,
and learned by doing how to do stop motion animation :). 2 small animations were captured, but lot of work is still waiting to
be done. Anyway it was fun! Coming soon…! Photo by Nina Farsen.
This is my new web shop, based on holvi.com web banking. My books are sold here and maybe later other products too.

Great small hint of my book in Helsingin Sanomat Teema issue 5/2014. Leena Virtanen, a free journalist and children’s book activist says: “The best children’s book of the year is Suvi-Tuuli Junttila’s visually wonderful Minne matka, lapanen?”. : )
Finally they arrived! “Minne matka, lapanen?” (“Where to go, knitted mitten?”) is out from printing house, and I feel happy : ).
More than two years of work and planning has finally come to something concrete. You can order the book in HERE, also with acknowledgements : ). More about the book you can read HERE. If you need full image of the book cover, you can download it HERE.
“Minne matka, lapanen?” The story of little lost knitted mitten and an acorn are on it’s way… to be published later in autumn 2014! Read more here.
I have been working on my next children’s book since 2 years now. Finally it will come out this autumn by Schildts & Söderströms in Finnish and Swedish. Here one of my favorite pictures of two little adventurers… Coming soon : )
This image for a powder test was published few weeks ago in Me Naiset women’s magazine (6/2014). We made this beauty picture together with my colleague, photographer Panu Pälviä. It was fun to play with the powders and cake papers like stencil style. And I think the result is pretty cool too. More Me Naiset beauty images you can find here.
Spring has finally arrived to Helsinki. Actually much earlier than usually. Just to remind, my first book “Missä, tässä, jossakin…” is still available in some book stores. And you can also anytime order it straight from me, for price 20 euros including dedication : ). Just email me: email@example.com. Also available in Korean!
On the way to be shipped to Korea! I will take part to The 8th Cheongju International Craft Biennale in South Korea.
If you happen to be around on 11th September to 20th October, please visit Finland’s Pavilion. There is some Fungimaa
mushrooms and my book in Korean. Welcome!
So happy!!! Thank’s to my great Korean friend Jihyun Ryou, my book “Missä, tässä, jossakin…” has now published in Korea too by Little Mountain Publishing. Small step for a human, but big step for a small nut, bottle top, screw and hook : )
(Actually a very big step for me too!)

Finally the lamp is almost ready. Different colour versions will come later under the “Products” site.
I decided that the name of the lamp is “Shy”, because that is what she is.
Almost a lamp… I have been planning to make this lamp for 5 years, and now it has finally reached it´s body.
A piece of folded aluminium and a tale. Only the “hat” is still missing. But I am working on it…
Happy New Year 2012! In Helsinki it means the year of World Design Capital, I am looking forward to see it!
My wish for this year is to continue with book illustrations, hopefully to make the next story for Missä, tässä, jossakin…
