What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?
My name is Joakim Hellstedt and I am a freelancing concept artist and illustrator.
What part of your creative work do you like the most?
I really enjoy laying the foundation for things, which might also be why I often work in the initial process of larger projects where my designs are further iterated and realized by 3d modelers or similar. But I generally enjoy helping others that may not have a visual skillset to communicate their ideas.
What’s the best thing about working with you, from a clients point of view?
Since I've worked pretty widely and have a large interest in styles I am pretty adaptable – my wish is always that the client I'm working for gets exactly what they are after, or help finding out what that is.
