This article is about woman going to driving school again at 40´s, with lot of fears. My colleague Essi Myllyoja has written the article, I did the illustration and layout for it and Juha Salminen and I took the photos. This was lot of fun! The whole article you can read here, and also see a small stop motion animation I made for it here. Big thanks also for my friend Jenni, who borrowed these pink gloves for us, and all the kids who gave the cars :).

This article by Virpi Salmi is about the forecast of Finland, when the birthrate is going so much down, that soon we have only old people around and no kids, or very few only. In the illustration I wanted to make it dramatic by cutting the kids of from the pictures. Luckily the forecasts can also fail, and the future might be brighter. Original pictures are from Getty Images, photographed by Piia Arnould.

This article is about the field of care, including nursery, child care, elderly care etc. The field is in crisis in Finland, because there is a lack of labor force since the salary, circumstances and valuation of the field is not so good. Very often these workers are women. We made the images for the article together with photographer Tuomas Kolehmainen by transillumination on light table. The article is written by Virpi Salmi. You can read the full article here.

This article’s illustration we made together with Kaisa Viljanen (text) and Tuomas Kolehmainen (photos). Kaisa and me carried our bio waste bags and rotten foods from home for the photos. The article is about how much people throw away food, which could have been still edible, if stored right and planned well. You can read the full article here.
