Björnstjerna, Jonna

Jonna Bjönstjerna’s was born in 1983. She trained at Serieskolan in Malmö, and her picture strip stories can be seen in Norrköpings Tidningar, Ernie, and will soon appear in Galago as well. Her illustrations are reminiscent of both Edward Gorey and John Bauer; there are elements of both fear and romance, as in a classic fairy tale. Jonna herself regards Julie Doucet and Tim Burton as her role models. This combination has produced terrific, amusing and personal stories and illustrations that everyone can identify with!
