Riikka Laakso: Untitled (detail)

Work / Illustration

Incisive and tactile new work by illustrator Riikka Laakso

Some truly lovely new work here by Riikka Laakso, a Berlin-based illustrator with a light touch. Riikka’s fondness for coloured pencils sets her poles apart from many of her tablet-wielding contemporaries, lending her editorial illustration a tactile edge which contrasts neatly with her incisive storytelling style. The commissioning moguls over at Die Zeit have already picked up on this cool combination, resulting in a number of pieces by Riikka for Zeit Campus, as well as work for Psychologie Heute and Berlin’s International Festival. If you don’t know her work yet, rest assured that this won’t be the case for long – if her grasp of textures and retro style are anything to go by we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Riikka in the months to come.
