We don’t know much about Swedish graphic designer and illustrator Klara Persson, but we do know that her style, created with watercolours and collage-esque shapes, oversized upper halves, and lots of pastel colours, is pretty fantastic.
From Molly and Sus, best friends whose super-long braids attach them together, to her funny-looking, skinny-legged characters, every face she turns her pen to seems to emerge brilliantly animated and clad in huge woolly jumpers that, in all honesty, I’d be perfectly happy to don myself. With any luck this mystery-swathed illustrator will soon emerge from the shadows and show us more.
