Today’s featured artist is probably one of the most well-known Norwegian illustrators: Mona Stenseth Larsen, aka Emmeselle. She creates beautiful hand made illustrations and she has her own shop where she sells printed products. Her style is super clean, really detailed, with an old school vibe to it, and her inspiration often comes from her Norwegian legacy.
She was one of the first illustrators I interviewed, a few years ago – and in the meantime, she has done some amazing new work that you should see.

“I’m very much inspired by the fifties and sixties. I love everything vintage that tells a story. I can browse flea markets for hours, look at old books and advertising. I also love nostalgia from my own childhood, remembering items that used to give me a nice feeling. I take that memory, and try to re-live the moment by putting an item into an illustration.”
