HI, I'M GUN
My creative career began in the early nineties, when a happy young Gun drew an absolute garbage drawing that my kindergarten teacher praised like the Mona Lisa. It was taped onto the refrigerator and after that, there was no going back. I've kept illustrating since. 

I studied Media & Communication and later on Motion Graphics at Hyper Island, after which I interned at the brilliant studio Brikk. Since 2015, I've worked as a freelance illustrator and animator based in Stockholm. I've had the pleasure of working with some lovely clients such as Halebop, Toca Boca, Bonnier, SVT, Johnson & Johnson and Åhléns.
