ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hello! I am Linnea - a freelance illustrator from Umeå in north Sweden. I graduated from the University of the West of England, Bristol, in 2014, with a BA (Hons) Illustration degree.
I like to swap between traditional and digital media, and often combine the two. I often feel drawn towards both dark and cute themes, and also subjects of dark humour. I love the magical and mystical - fantasy, comics, and picture books. I also have an interest for scientific illustration.
Artists that have greatly inspired me are Hans Arnold, John Bauer, Tove Jansson, Sven Nordqvist, and Chris Riddell.
