I have drawn an ant wedding, a belly dancing grandma and a pony pile-up for clients. Old folk instruments, an enlarged tick and a docent of neurology. Once I illustrated a village suffering from drought and another time a pink villa surrounded by roses. What would be your next suggestion?

I am Elina Jasu (she/her), an illustrator living in Southwest Finland. I love the variability of illustration and the constant learning possibilities in it. It is the best if the viewer can comprehend something new with my illustrations, or if they are able to aid someone in understanding a thing or a feeling. I do a lot of illustrations intended for children, such as books and learning materials.

"Collaboration with Elina has gone easily and in good spirits from the start! Elina has excellently taken the clients wishes into consideration in her illustrations, and has also managed to place in lovely and clever details. Practicalities, such as communication and staying in schedule, have also gone faultlessly. I can warmly recommend collaboration with Elina!"

"Collaboration with Elina Jasu has gone professionally and in an uncomplicated fashion. Elina stays well on schedule and listens attentively to the clients wishes. As an illustrator she is diverse and her children’s book illustrations for Kvaliti have been well liked. I warmly recommend Elina for different illustration projects."
Hanna Sinkkonen, publisher, Kvaliti Oy

"All five book projects with Elina, quite different among each other, have gone extremely well. The schedules have stayed and her ideas and observations regarding the text have improved the entirety of the work. Elina’s distinctive visual storytelling is fun, imaginative and touching – proven as well by the reader feedback on our book Mulu - lapsi joka toi metsän takaisin."
