My name is Tova Jertfelt and I'm an illustrator and a graphic designer. I make illustrations for books, newspapers, magazines and digital campaigns.
I also make animations in stop motion and have experience with postproduction, visual profiling and logotypes. I'm excellent in drawing quick portraits and event illustrations, and I also make comics on demand. My strength is in the illustrated picture.
When I illustrate I tend to use black/white collage, ink, graphical prints, digital painting, lineart or drypastel, quite often I mix everything digitally. My body of work is graphical, usually black/white, with bold lines and space for happy mistakes. Most illustrations that I've made are dark in their nature, as they are about dark topics such as racism, bullying, oppression and crimes against humanity.
When I work with graphic design I prefer to work with others, in collaborations, in order to reach a good level of creativity and inputs.
I have a bachelor degree in graphic design and illustration/ visual communication from Konstfack College of Arts, Craft and Design, Stockholm Sweden.
Among my clients are Natur & Kultur, Amnesty Sweden, Teskedorden, RE:Public, OmVärlden and others.
