Hello, I’m Karl-Joel, an illustrator living and working in Gothenburg, Sweden.

My illustrations are mainly focused on people, plants and interiors. I get my inspiration from everyday life, art history, music and movies.

I’ve worked with editorial illustrations, illustrations for greeting cards, record covers and branding. 
I’m always interested in taking on new formats!
