Janne is an award winning Finnish illustrator based in Brighton. His work is characterised by dynamic compositions, vibrant colour schemes and precise & clear line-work in the tradition of ligne claire. His fun and optimistic illustrations often feature a cast of unique characters depicted in a variety of everyday situations.
His main source of inspiration stems from his daily observations of people and life around him, which adds a sense of relevance and realism to his work. Janne is most adept at illustrating the current zeitgeist with it's fashions, technologies and habits, that all feature prominently in his work.
