Profile

I’m a Finnish Illustrator working mostly with editorial and commercial projects. I’m passionate about infographics, illustrating data and creating non-fiction picture books. My first non-fiction picture book “The Baron – Life of Jarno Saarinen” was highly commended at the World Illustration Awards children’s book category in 2019. The book was chosen a finalist for the Sports Book of the Year 2018 in Finland. I fell in love with vector graphics the first time I was introduced to the medium around 2002. It has been my main technique throughout my career. I love the logic and their wavy nature. Illustrating technical subjects (such as motorcycles) fits my style perfectly, and retro poster art has always been close to my heart. I illustrate a lot of people and portraits.
