Verified identity


I am an award winning and best selling author and comic book artist from Norway. In my 20 years + career as a professional designer, illustrator and typographer, I have won several design and art contests. I master many different techniques for adapting my clients wishes and needs, creating the best possible results.

I am the author and creator of the award winning graphic novel series "ARKIN - Guardian of the Light". The best selling series was awarded The Raven Rings Prize in March 2022, by the international bestselling and multiple award winning author Siri Pettersen.

I am published by one of Norway's largest publishers Egmont, which publishes well-known brands such as MARVEL and Disney.

I am self-taught, but I have learned a lot from so many different artists over the past twenty years.
In my career as a designer and illustrator I have done all kinds of design assignments, from illustrating for big magazines, to creating logos for small and large companies. I have also done several book covers, both design, illustration and typography.

As a visual identity maker (logo and theme) I have also specialized one of many skills in typography, because I think fonts, letters and placing them correctly is something only a few designers truly masters. But it is crucial to know this skill.

I have also done hundreds of web designs for both small and large companies. Web design is an art form it self, putting the visual pieces together, combining pictures, typography, navigation choices and info all together in one functional digital platform.

I also see my self as a "Photoshop Master", after 25 years of editing images.
These qualities I have adapted come in handy when creating a book cover using real images, and not just illustrations and graphic design.

If you want a stunning cover for your book, please do not hesitate to reach out for me.
