Illustrator & Artist Jan Oksbøl Callesen

by Kasper Nybo Photography


Jan is one of those artists that seem to produce his rich drawings through a perfectly choreographed casual blend of childrens markers, coffee stains and whatever else is needed (and around) to make his colorful work come to life. He's currently working on a new childrens book – currently being translated to English and French, and looking for a good publisher (hint, hint!) – you can catch a few samples at the end of this post.

Thanks Jan for letting me share some of your work, and for inviting me to your home for a couple of hours to shoot these images!

You can explore more of Jans work right here – or make your walls happy and get some of his prints in Butik CMYK
