Väinämöinen is the central character in the national Finnish and Karelian epic Kalevala. Yesterday, in museum, trying to explain my kids who is Väinämöinen - magician and wice man, musician and singer - I compared him with modern superheroes.

"I think, he is cooler than Superman!" - assumed my eldest son Leo.

And after that an image of a Karelian superhero Väinäman came to my mind and, as usual, didn't want to get out until I draw him.
