Gustaf Öhrnell Hjalmars
Gustaf Öhrnell Hjalmars is a freelance illustrator, living in Bagarmossen, south of Stockholm. In his artwork he looks to combine a digital approach with a handmade feel. He is addicted to subtle textures and bold colors, seeking to counterpoint solid geometric shapes with crisp line work. The aesthetic is inspired by traditional graphic techniques such as screen printing, with a bit of wobble and unevenness. ”I also try to incorporate some unexpected element in my illustrations, a humoristic touch, and I hope it intrigues people to look twice” Gustaf says. His work range from character design and backgrounds for animated commercials, to editorials, book covers and stamps. His clients include SvD, Ikea, Ica, Postnord, UR and Naturskyddsföreningen, amongst others.
