Frida grew up in Swe­den play­ing video games and they’re still one of the big­gest in­flu­ences for her art to­day. “Sto­ry­telling, char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment and at­mo­spheric mu­sic are all things I’m heav­ily in­spired by”, she says. “I’ve al­ways been re­ally in­ter­ested in peo­ple. With my art I can vi­su­alise their sto­ries and per­son­al­i­ties in my own way.”

Il­lus­tra­tions where the char­ac­ter’s emo­tions are the fo­cus are what Frida loves draw­ing most. She be­lieves you can tell a lot about a per­son by body lan­guage and fa­cial ex­pres­sions.

“Char­lie Bowa­ter is some­one I look up to a lot and I’d love to fol­low in her foot­steps,” she says.

1 Alive

“I was in a bit of a rut, do­ing stuff that was too sim­i­lar, so I wanted to go out­side my com­fort zone to break the block. I took risks, pushed the colours and went for some­thing re­ally dif­fer­ent. It was so much fun.”

2 Sea crea­tures

“Ev­ery now and then I like to do a more re­al­is­tic por­trait to brush up on my anatomy. This one was good prac­tice for draw­ing chil­dren and I learned a lot from it.”

3 Gold fish geisha

“This was a gift for my brother who re­quested I draw him a geisha. I love un­der­wa­ter crea­tures so I got the idea of hav­ing dozens of bright or­ange gold­fish cir­cu­lat­ing her. I imag­ine she’s a spirit with great power who rules the ocean.”

4 Hermione Gra nger

“This is one of my favourite Harry Pot­ter char­ac­ters. Nor­mally I spend hours try­ing to per­fect ev­ery de­tail in a paint­ing, but here I re­laxed and felt fine keep­ing things a bit rough.”
