I am illustrating a bimonthly column for the magazine “Psykologi” of the Finnish psychologist association (Suomen Psykologiliitto ry). The subject for the illustration is often a quotation by a famous writer, philosopher, artist, politician or other public figure (although I think we had Moomin papa once). The themes range from uplifting material to rather dark stuff, always trying to reflect the current state our world and consequently our communial mind is in.
I am doing this series since 2012. As with the engelsloge-series, this had to follow some twists and turns in my drawing style.
The series was awarded with the Finnish graphic designers association grafia’s best of the year Silver Award (Vuoden Huiput, Hopeahuippu) in 2014.
From the jury (translation below):
Sitä klassista ja oivaltavan taidokasta kuvitustaitoa puhtaimmillaan. Toimii nyt ja aina.
“This is classic and excellent illustration skill at it’s best. Works now and always.”
Below are all the images I have made so far (as of Summer 2016). Naturally I like some of them much more than others, but people often like different things, so I decided to just put them all here.
