Klas Fahlén

Swedish illustrator Klas Fahlén has been featured several times on several sites and I don't want to miss him here as well. Klas is known for his energetic line drawings. His work often reminds of Swedish graphic designer Olle Eksell (1918 -  2007) and is inspired by "anything from Picasso to contemporary Swedish illustrator Stina Wirsén." 
"As a little boy, illustrator Klas Fahlén spent hours drawing Batman and playing football; but when he realised you had to be 6'2" with the stamina of a horse to be a footballer, it became just drawing and painting." Head over to his portfolio here via Agent Bauer or Art Department. His simple and elegant drawings are always fun!

And here is one by famous Olle Eksell. They are good together, aren't they?
