I just wanted to share one of my main role models as regards to art/illustration: Sven Nordqvist and mainly his universe in Pettersson och Findus. Pettersson och Findus is a series of children’s books written and illustrated by him. The style is a mix between realism and the opposite. The stories and art is characterized by a feeling of nostalgia and sprinkled with whimsical details.
Hope you will enjoy them 🙂
