Where do you get your inspiration?
For my subjects, from my own life. From my mental health and relationship experiences and how I view the world. I started to do art like this, because it helped me to express myself better and made me feel less lonely, when people online felt the same way as I do.
Visually my art finds inspiration from my love towards horror, dark and morbid things. I also love colors, nature and good quality animation styles, which actually originally inspired me to get better, for example, to make emotional facial expressions.
Why are you drawing wolves and sheeps?
Originally, when I was a child, I started to draw mostly canines and canine based comics, because I got super inspired from the 80's series called Ginga Nagareboshi Gin. Also I loved, and I still love, canines very much, because they are strong and beautiful animals. But by time, wolf started to find own meaning in my art.
Wolf often represents in my art something that struggles with life, past and pain, but also something that dares to hope for better. The wolf is free to feel and express emotions, and free to be who the wolf really is inside.
Sheep, on the other hand, appeared to often represent in my art restrained behavior, modesty and over politeness. Feelings about how I was taught to be, how I learned to be, and how I often feel I still should be. That's why sheep is kind of a counterpart for my wolf side, which inside me wants to be free.
When You started drawing?
At the age of 12, I started my drawing hobby. Professionally I started to draw at year 2019, when my social media started to get visibility.
What does susitse mean?
Susitse is a word play from finnish words susi (means wolf) and itse (self), but the word Susitse itself is also a finnish word, which roughly means, when translated, "told or delivered by wolves".
