Samuli Siirala

Hi, my name is Samuli Siirala (he/him) and I’m a Finnish illustrator. I specialize in editorial, advertising and textbook illustration and I have a background in comics and filmmaking.

I am inspired by nature, music, street culture and personalities – my characters have character.

I work well with both light and dark subject matters – humour is a big part of my work but I also have extensive experience in illustrating global issues. Storytelling is a central aspect of my work; my comic strips have been featured in multiple magazines.

Editorial, advertising, school book illustration, animated illustrations.

Occasionally, I use traditional techniques like gouache, watercolour and acrylic for effect but my main domain is digital art.

Clip Studio Paint, Photoshop, Affinity, Moho, Apple Motion

I am also a photographer.
