Illustration based on the novel The Buddha of Suburbia by Hanif Kureishi.

Mix of hand done drawing and digital work.

Meant to illustrate a meeting between east and west and the essence of 70s life and music.

Very much inspired by the music of David Bowie (especially the album Hunky Dory) and Jimi Hendrix, as well as psychedelic poster art, and even Art Noveau.

Graphic designer, illustrator and motion graphics designer, born in 1980 in Oslo, the capital of frozen country Norway. Graduated with a BA (Hons) Illustration degree from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth in 2007.
