ABOUT ME


Multidisciplinary illustrator and designer living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Grew up on the country side near the forest and the sea. Mom made cigars and dad was a typographer, hence visual influence came early on from home. My journey has brought me 10+ years in creative agencies before freelancing and illustrating fulltime since 2017.

I made collaborations with many inspiring clients on a multitude of projects like editorial illustration, packaging design, environmental graphics and mural art to name a few. I enjoy working digital as well as analogue through thoughtful craftsmanship and with a keen eye for visual aestethics and details.

Please reach out for inqueries or collaboration.


Cheers,
Michael
