Sven Nordqvist is a Swedish illustrator whose best known books are Pettson och Findus (Pettson and Findus), the first which was published in 1985. The stories tell the adventures of an old farmer and his cat (What’s not to like?)
It’s clear why these charming illustrations became so popular. Over 6 million copies have been sold and the books have been translated into 44 different languages.
Nordqvist himself always wanted to be an illustrator but was not accepted by any art schools. Instead he studied architecture. He appears to have dove into an illustration career without any school training. Eventually, in 1983, he won an award for a children’s book and worked exclusively on chilren’s books after that.

I watched this 4 minute video about how reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone park literally changed everything about the park and just sat there for another two minutes, mouth open and teary eyed and amazed. Definitely worth a watch.
it’s amazing how the earth itself changed in response to wildlife…
why do people look like their art styles so much
they don’t look exactly like it
but you can look at a person then at their art then back at the person and be like “yes, this is definitely the person who drew this”
This is beautiful and perfect and EXACTLY as the world should be.
I was waiting to hear about the backlash that commercial most likely caused (since seeing a biracial couple for cheerios caused a stir I knew it was only a matter of time before this one did), and I’m so happy Honey Maid responded in this way. What a great way to simultaneously show that negativity should be met by continued positivity AND how the negativity was outweighed by the positivity they got.
