Picture-making Swede Henrik Franklin is one seriously talented chap. He’s only just graduated from an MA in illustration and design at Konstfack, Stockholm where he’s developed a witty and approachable vernacular of gouache on paper that deals with the arbitrary happenings of day to day life. But in Henrik’s world the cuckoo clocks have stage fright, the neighbours are creepy and love is nearly always unrequited.
Aside from all the emotional drama and heartache, Henrik’s work looks seriously good, and these life-like renderings of strange literary titles are testament to the exceptional skill of this up and coming creative.
