Tove Jansson

Tove Jansson is known all over the world for her Moomin books and characters. I love her illustrations and watercolors more than Moomin... There's just so sadly few samples online :-(

If you can, go to the Moomin Valley exhibition in Tampere. It's amazing...

Here's a couple of images that remind me of Tove Jansson...

I don't like Paula Rego's art, it's too dark, sinister, wicked and twisted to my taste, but her style, the somewhat exaggerated, caricature-like, with strong angles and shadows and light, that I like :-)
