Hi! And welcome to my gallery. My name is Mikko Anttonen (A.K.A. 'FreakyMike') and I live in a small town in the eastern part of Finland. I'm pretty mad on science fiction- & fantasy art/literature, medieval times and metal music as well.. I have always liked drawing and making 'handicrafts'of similar design with my pictures.. I also make objects from metal, wood, stone and clay etc. I think that knife/jewelry making is my most uplifting hobby nowadays. :)
I drew a lot, when I was a kid.. In my teenage years that went to the backround, but a couple of years ago I got extremely interested it again, And now I draw and paint a lot of scifi- and fantasy works etc. (Mainly in Wacom tablet and Photoshop) Sorry about typos.. My english skills are quite minor.
