Bendik Kaltenborn's playful illustrations are as hilarious as they are skillful

Posted by James Cartwright,

This might sound ridiculous but I feel like I’ve known Bendik Kaltenborn’s illustration for years, even though I only discovered him a week ago. The Norwegian comics artist produces work in a style that recalls a rich Scandinavian tradition of bright block colours and playful geometric characters, and yet is entirely his own. With a career that’s spanned nine years so far Bendik has an enormous portfolio of work, encompassing editorial illustration, witty comics and some terrifically playful poster design. He’s also a dab hand at screen printing. With all this incredible talent in the bag we have only one question to ask; Why has nobody commissioned him in the UK? Come on British publishers, get on with it!
