Since 2012 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 communal mind is in.
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.”
Featured here is a selection of drawings I liked especially.
