Gustaf Lord

Illustrator, animator and comic book artist who occasionally ventures into the uncharted areas of fine art. My work includes wallpaper design as well as educational, editorial and book illustration. Most recently Jens Lapidus children’s books Dillstaligan (BonnierCarlsen). 

After several years as a wallpaper designer at Duro Tapet, I now share my working hours between freelance commissions under the Studio Lord banner and projects at various companies, for example as illustrator for an interactive education software by Liber Infinitas Learning.

The style varies from client to client but the drawings often conveys a positive attitude and some humour. Clients range from small companies in the culture sector to larger media houses and authorities. I've published comic books, picture books and several animated information films and music videos.
