Dry, scathing and sarcastic aren’t necessarily words that you associate with bright colours and smiley, pudgy faced cartoons. Wait until you see Rami Niemi’s work and start realising that he’s got the right idea about pretty much everything. He has made editorial illustrations for countless brands, magazines, companies and books, but always with an equally delicious pinch of irony and naughtiness.
