About Eelis Kyttanen

Welcome to my Patreon! Here’s the project I am working on currently:



Five Seasons of Celebration (Viiden Vuodenajan Juhla in Finnish) is a book project I’ve been mulling over for a long time. It’s inspired by Finland, my homeland, as well as by Finno-Ugric culture with some flavour from elsewhere around the world. In its current form, it’s a collection of folk tales with a loose central narrative. I love when people come to their own conclusions about my work, so the book will likely have very little text, although this could change.

Keeping in that spirit, I don’t want to give too much of the narrative away and would rather have the paintings tell the story bit by bit. I can say that it’s set in a land where day-to-day life resembles a mid-19th-century Finnish countryside, which is suddenly shattered by a wild procession carrying invites to a Celebration.

My Patreon is a way for you to support me and the project, and in return, I’ll share with you my thoughts, work in progress and other exclusive material pertaining to the creation of the book. I’ll release max 1 painting per month, but more often than not there will be a few months gap between the paintings. This is going to be a long project!

As such, I don’t have a timeline yet for the completion of the book. I’m estimating I’ll need to do about 50 paintings and perhaps the same amount of drawings. However, this will probably change as the book progresses.

Lastly, as a patron, you’ll also get your name carved on the Holy Rock by the Lake (Pyhä Kallio Järven Äärellä), hidden deep in the taiga forests surrounding the village. Names of those invited to the Celeberation are written here and it is said that the rock paintings hold the gift of foresight.



You all are invited to attend the Celeberation!

Regards,
Eelis
