Siggi Odds: Jæja (detail)

Work / Illustration

Scintillating new work from Icelandic illustrator Siggi Odds

Since we spoke to Siggi Odds about his design and illustrations last year, his work has got even more vibrant. His patterns have become more playful, remaining influenced by traditional Native American work. Multi-coloured bodies tumble, cartwheel and crawl around a lady’s sari in his cover illustration for The Reykjavík Grapevine. Leaves fall around Siggi’s face in an autumnal self-portrait poster he made for a FÍT exhibition; asked to illustrate the word “Jæja” (“oh well”) for a series on the 30 most beautiful words in Icelandic, he did a picture of himself going “oh well.” Nice!
