Illustration Work: Karnhuset (part 1)



Recently, I did a series of illustrations for Swedish design agency, Karnhuset, for their upcoming website re-design. I was contacted by Jakob Westman, who also happens to be a pretty snazzy illustrator, and he commissioned me to do some fun portraits of himself and his fellow staff, as well as some other graphics and illustrations.

I'll post more images and graphics later, but for now, here's a couple of the staff portraits I drew up. These pretty much drew themselves, mainly because the Karnhuset gang have a lot of style anyway, and working with another illustrator as a contact made it easier, since Jakob drew up some nice concept sketches for me to see what he wanted.

For the final art, I drew these with coloured ink on paper. They were then scanned and and cleaned it up a bit in photoshop. The drawings were all painted in the same colour, but for variety's sake I decided to re-colour each individually here.
