Portrait: Jan Lööf


I haven't added added any new portraits for a while, so I'll go through my sketchbooks and show some of my favourites the next couple of weeks. Here's a beautiful drawing by the legendary Swedish cartoonist, animator and illustrator Jan Lööf. He made one of his very exclusive public appearances last year at the book fair in Gothenburg, when we presented him with an Urhunden award. At that time he also drew this portrait, which is actually very much like I would look in a Jan Lööf story. I like the fact that I actually look like the old man I sometimes feel like :) What do you think?
