Looking at Helsinki. The World Design Capital year in Helsinki starts tomorrow. In the final illustration four people are looking out of the tram window. They are my co-workers: a journalist, a graphic designer, a photographer and a layout journalist who are going to report on the year long event. The photos are taken by Cata Portin like this. The tram and surroundings is traced in ink from a photo using a light table, a quick way of creating something that looks like urban sketching.
Personally, I´m looking forward to the Helsinki Illustration Festival at the Design museum 13-15.4.2012. It´s the only event so far that I have decided not to miss. Also, if you are interested in Finnish illustrators, there is an exhibition at Päivälehden museo (Ludviginkatu 2-4, Helsinki) 20.3.-20.9, and it´s free!

There´s more to come: the music recommendations. So in addition to the literature characters, I´ve prepared artists as well. Can you find Pavarotti and Amy Winehouse in the picture above?
And while I was at it, just for my own pleasure, I tried out an animation where the devil meets Anna Karenina. Sil vous plait.
