Hi, I’m Jukka Pylväs – an illustrator with a strong and distinctive style. I am a versatile and cultivated professional illustrator. I am able to create compelling and visually sophisticated atmospheres. I immerse myself in my work and always strive to make the viewer stay with the image. I am naturally imaginative and venturous. I jump into work promptly, stay on schedule and listen closely to all the client's wishes for the project. Over the past few years I have broadened my expertise, and I especially enjoy making animations. Illustration brought into motion is more!
I have specialised in editorial illustration since 2000. In recent years I also have been active in making animated illustrations. I receive the best feedback from projects in which I’ve incorporated my unique sense of humour – whether the topic is commercial, political or environmental. I prefer to work in vector space. I use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and After Effects fluently.
