Mattias Adolfsson is an illustrator who fills his small sketchbooks front to back, top to bottom with the density and life of a small world. His work is fastidiously detailed and populated by bulbous humans, clumsy good-natured creatures, and futuristic robots of twisty old machinery. On his Facebook you can see near daily progress shots as he pours down detail between faint pencil holding lines.
