4 things you didn't know about Johanna:
I'm an illustrator, designer, and artist based in Malmö and Copenhagen. I'm also a part of the design shop & studio 'GunGun' in Copenhagen.
What inspires her:
I have always loved creating and drawing to form and shape things using my hands. I guess it's a way to transfer myself to a fantasy world where anything can happen. Beyond that, it's also a way to evoke emotions, and it helps me cope with the world. I grew up in the countryside in rural Sweden, in a house surrounded by fields and forests. I spent my childhood climbing trees and taking an interest in everything from flowers to wild elks passing by our garden - which is why nature has always been a healthy inspiration for me.
What she'd design if she collaborated with an artist, writer, or musician in the world:
It’s a difficult question to answer, but I would love to design book covers for the Penguin Classics series.
What she thinks about the importance of hand drawing in the society today:
In a world where everything is going digital, I think hand drawing remains essential as it fosters a presence and a creative process that simply is lost in the analog-digital divide that is human-computer interaction.
