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. My aim is to draw images which a lot of people can relate to. Therefore, when illustrating people, I strive to do it in a way that does not immediately or clearly decide the depicted’s gender.

I’ve worked with editorial illustrations, illustrations for greeting cards, record covers and branding. Looking forward, I would love to work with illustrations for food related projects and for packaging. 
I’m always open to and interested in taking on new formats.
