Om Stefan Lindblad på Svenska

Artist, Illustrator, who also create graphic design – Stefan Lindblad. A few words on how I work, music I listen to and places I tend to work at

Artist Illustrator Stefan Lindblad

The Studio where images and creativity live and bread. A universe filled with visions, transformed into drawings, sketches, illustrations, and graphic design. I´m based in Stockholm, Sweden. Often called the Capital of Scandinavia (Making the Danes go crazy).

Where I am based

Based in Stockholm, Sweden. Work as a freelance, sole proprietor illustrator, graphic designer, and artist. Often create editorial and commercial illustrations, book cover art, and various designs.

My clients

I would say most of my clients are from the news media, advertising, and book publishers but also various regular companies who need an illustration drawn, a logotype designed, vectorized, illustrations in general and sometimes design and build a website or two.

That extra stuff I work with

Sometimes I draw live at conferences when companies ask me to.

Train ”teach”

Also, train and instruct others in using CorelDRAW Graphics Suite and Corel PAINTER via on-site sessions with local companies staff, and online courses through both my own managed online courses plus Skillshare and Corel Corporation who hire me do both written and video-based tutorials using their software, as part of me being an official CorelDRAW Master.

List of clients

My list of clients (view list on my Swedish page) ranges anything from a local newspaper, Swedish PLAYBOY when that was around, and Gullers Group in Stockholm hiring me to draw digital illustrations LIVE in Gothenburg for French Transportation company TRANSDEV, their Swedish branch. At the Swedish Exhibition & Conference Center, for three days. The list of illustration work I do is long. Equally, technically it is either Digital on the computer or analog on paper. Also featured “Face” of Corel Photo-Paint.

Places to work – Home, Studio and Café

One can often find me working either at my home studio workplace, the comfy of my kitchen, studio place downtown, or at any of the various local Coffee Shops in Stockholm City. Or other towns I may visit. Domestic or abroad. As much as I have had my own studios/atelier, I have always been a mobile working artist, a digital nomad as it is called these days. Ever since I was a young struggling artist.

Music I listen to while I work

I often listen to music when I work. Rock, Classic, Opera, Jazz, Pop, House and Movie soundtracks. I have a rather eclectic taste of music. I just love the soundtrack from James Bond Skyfall, it’s crazy good! Batman Begins Soundtrack aint shabby either. Perfect music to work to. Equally, here is a playlist I put together with a selection of old and new Rock and Pop music I often come back to.

Client work is great fun and pay the bills. Equally, with my artist background with art exhibitions, I learned early the joy of creating without anyone saying what and when.

One of those things have been to create and publish, from scratch to final, my own colouring books. Indie Published under my own Imprint Canvas Illustration Press.
