My name is Irma and I am a Swedish comic artist and illustrator.
From chunky cats to political satire and everything in between. I am fond of subjects such as feminism and lgbtq rights, and like to present my thoughts on the matters in a comedic manner. I’m no stranger to fiction, though, and some of my favourite genres are drama, romance and young adult.
I make my art accessible to youths, where I find I can make a lot of positive change and create thought and discussion. Comics are the best learning medium!
Beside art, I sing in a choir, craft my own cosplays and frequent the local second hand shops.
Internship at Story House Egmont
Editorial/creative work in the Bamse division, including writing comic manuscripts and creating artwork, creative directing for Bamse covers, and various editorial tasks.
Comic workshop at Center of Cartoon Studies
Based in Vermont, this workshop does an intense, week-long deep-dive into famous cartoonists, drawing techniques and page layouts, resulting in my comic Beauty Standards and Pedophilia.
BA in Graphic Storytelling, The Animation Workshop, VIA University College
I learnt about visual storytelling in both long- and short form, script-writing, applied cartooning, world building, and many more ways to tell a story through the means of art.
