Freelance illustrator and urban artist from Larvik, Norway, trained as an interdisciplinary artist and graphic designer.

Now I usually work digitally on a iPad Pro, with the Procreate app and an Apple Pencil. This makes for the best workflow for me — I can make everywhere my studio, featuring the full arsenal of tools required.

I do illustrations for magazines, books, records and posters, as well as some storyboards. Have also been leading workshops on comics and fanzines. You can actually fold a piece of paper into a small zine!

When not doing commissions I do urban art (sketching streets, cities, people and buildings architecture on the spot). Or indie publishing my weird comics as small books or fanzines.
