My name is Antti and I work as a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, animator and comic artist. I live in Helsinki, Finland, where I was also born 41 years ago.
I have graduated from Aalto University’s School of Art, Design & Architecture in 2016 with a master’s degree in graphic design. My minor studies included not only animation and screenwriting, but also comics and game design.
I have illustrated children’s books, done editorial illustrations, worked as an art director for magazines and designed visual identities for movies and television series.
In my freetime I like to get lost and marvel at old ugly concrete buildings which I find fascinating.
