FYI Monday: Quirky Hand-Drawn Illustrations by Mattias Adolfsson

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday Series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.

Mattias Adolfsson is a freelance illustrator living in Sigtuna just outside of Stockholm, Sweden. All Mattias uses for his artwork are pen, ink and watercolours. It’s really refreshing to find someone creating such amazing traditional art. All of Mattias works have a very quirky element to them. The most impressive thing though is the sheer volume of pieces that he’s produced. For more inspiration make sure to visit his Behance portfolio.

  1. Very interesting illustrations, I love the water colours for the colour tones. The fox on the rocket is definitely my favourite due to the water colour with pen and the layering of water colour to create shading. Some of these illustrations look as though they are part of a children’s book, I love the quirky nature of the drawings and how much there is to explore about the illustrations. You can let your imagination run with them. The santa’s are excellent though, very funny.

  2. What a great post. I love coming here to take a look what is on this site. The space drawing reminds me of the old days when I use to read comics in newspapers and magazines. It brings back some memories.

  3. Thanks for your comments. Glad to hear that you like the illustrations.
