Pekka Rahkonen

Hi! I am Pekka Rahkonen, an versatile illustrator and cartoonist with a degree in architecture. I acquired the enthusiasm and basic skills for illustration in the 1970s and 1980s, drawing both in school and in my spare time. I have been working as an illustrator since the 1990s and as a full-time illustrator since 2003. I have created numerous textbook and editorial illustrations, as well as cartoons and weekly caricatures for various magazines.

Due to my education as an architect, my special expertise lies in illustration work related to construction and buildings. In addition, I am familiar with educational materials and illustrations for children.
