Kalevi’s drawings are all created digitally. Loose, expressive and chock-full of happy fruits, animals, humans and shapes with eyes, Antti’s work is sunshine by way of a graphic tablet.

“I like to use humor in my pictures every now and then, but I also try to make beautiful images.” Antti Kalevi

London-based Dan Woodger’s colorful, cartoonish illustrations are inspired by 1980s pop culture and Saturday morning cartoons. Since graduating three years ago Dan’s oblong-eyed creations have graced the pages of numerous editorials, like ESPN and The New York Times, and have been part of campaigns for GiffGaff, The Webby Awards, and Oreos.

His highly stylized, comic book figures have an all-age appeal to them that’s eager to be snapped by companies large and small to give them the charming and cheeky edge they need. Woodger’s characters are expressive and manage to convey sarcasm, lust and anger all in a few lines.
