Clara Besijelle is a Swedish illustrator. She wonderfully mixes art deco type details, fabric prints, and pompus facial expressions with scruffy colouring in. Her style of drawing works well with her story-telling, which is awkward, sophisticated and hilarious. The comic, Good-bye and Wedding Day, is a perfect introduction to her work.
