My name is Kleo Bartilsson and I an an active illustrator who work in an vide range of areas. I have come to focus mainly on nature illustration, making both nature and environmental images, including images for nature reserve signs, books or leaflets. My solid natural interest have given me good skills in biology and ecology. I also work broader with illustration and also to make pictures for children's books, crosswords, magazines and posters for cultural events and more.
In my illustrations, I work with traditional methods, primarily watercolors, but also drawings. After the scan, I continue to work with Photoshop with some adjustments to customize the image for print or web publishing. In those cases where the client wants a printable material, with both text and image or other elements, I also do the graphic design, and then work in the InDesign program. I like to work closely with the client for the best results possible, and can make sketches in different steps to discuss. In the production of information material, sometimes text processing and search for facts are included in my assignment. I have the opportunity to collaborate with both biologists, landscape scientists and designers, where extra competence is required. I have previously worked for clients such as Helsingborgs kommun, Nacka vatten och avfall AB, ABF, Fältbiologernas förlag, tidningen Fältbiologen, Biofuel Region, Skarpnäcks stadsdelsförvaltning och Gräfsnäsparken. I am educated at Lunnevad Folk High School's two-year art line. Do not hesitate to contact me if you or your company / organization has an idea of a production where well-made images with vivid motives are needed.
