Inspired by his daughter, volcanos, patterns and black metal aesthetics, Jakob Feltsen from Gothenburg, Sweden creates illustrations of cute-meets-occult monsters. He works exclusively in Montana markers and has described his work as “advanced doodling.” He’s half way through his studies in illustration but his work is just as radical as any “professional” in the industry. His goal as an illustrator is to spread happiness through his work and to complete a children’s book he’s been working on while studying.
