Evgeni Malkin - MVP - Ice Hockey World Championship 2012

It was hockey time once again. This time Finland was the hosting country in the World Championship and defending the championship title in home rink. The whole nation had some wary expectations, and the Finnish team wasn't that bad. There seemed to be some chances... at least a slight one.

But first of all there was a spell to break. The hosting team hasn't won the title in 20 years or so.

And secondly there was Mr. Evgeni Malkin. Evgeni really stole the show with his outstanding performance. It was also Evgeni's 3 goals against Finland in semi-finals that put an end for the hopes of Finnish hockey fans.

So here's the Most Valuable Player of the Ice Hockey WC 2012 - Evgeni Malkin. Hats off.

Illustration Friday - Sight

Having just struggled with dynamic poses (See: Track and field sketches) it felt more than comfortable to do similar stuff.

Track and field sketches

As a very tiny part of a bigger project I just did some spot illustrations for track and field topic. Analyzing and sketching those sporty-kind-of postures was such a good lesson of anatomy.

What I found especially fascinating, was the "cross step pose" in javelin throw that takes place just before the actual yank. It's like a calm moment before a storm. In this sketch there is also a high jumper in act.

There's actually quite a similar moment in pole vault - the very brief floating moment when the upward speed has lost all its power, but the gravitation hasn't yet started to take it all back. Accompanying sports here are hurdle race and relay race.

The climate is getting colder in Europe

This is a piece of work I just recently finished. In case you haven't heard it yet: the climate is changing. One of my clients is saying the change is towards cold, at least in Europe. What I tried to do, was an exaggerated vision of that statement.

I only hope that this really turns out to be an exaggerated vision. I'm afraid I'm not very good at knitting woollen hats to seals.

Illustration Friday - Jump

It's a less known fact that they have actually had Olympic Games already in the middle ages. At least I guess so... And I'm pretty sure that there must have been long jumping competition for knights in full armour.
