Born in 1962 and domiciled in the Swedish city of Linkoping, he has been working as an illustrator and art director since 1983.
Olle started as a political caricaturist for The Östgöta Correspondent, the Moderate Party and Företagarförbundet, an interest group for small companies.
He has run an advertising agency since 1991.
Drawing has always been a part of his work, and new digital technology has reawakened an interest in caricatures.
I’m 51-years old and live in Linköping, Sweden. I work as Art Director and illustrator.
I must have been 14-years old when I got a copy of Mad Magazine from my father visiting USA.
There was a movie parody of the movie The Sting drawn by Mort Drucker.
I was hooked. From there on I bought every Mad Magazine I could find.
When I was 20 I worked as a caricaturist and illustrator for different newspapers.
I was a freelancer for 3 years and then started at an advertising Agency.
I worked more as Art Director than Illustrator.
As the years went by I just stopped making caricatures because it didn’t interest me at that time.
Two and a half years ago I got interested again and bought a Wacom tablet and began to learn digital painting.
Right now my main income comes from the Advertising business but since two years back I sell caricatures to different newsagents.
