Friday Art: Sven Nordqvist

Artist: Sven Nordqvist

Swedish illustrator

Born 1946, Swedish writer and illustrator of children’s books. Best known for Pettson and Findus, about an old farmer and his talented cat Findus, who live in a small ramshackle farmhouse in the countryside. His neighbours regard him as a bit odd. However, he does have the company of a cat, Findus. Findus is dressed in a green-striped costume and wears a cap. However, Findus, unlike Pettson, is aware of other "small creatures" living in the house, who play havoc with Pettson's belongings.

I think these illustrations will give you much enjoyment, do check out all the details in the pictures including all those "small creatures" that cause havoc. 


  1. Hilarious! Great imagination =)

  2. I was so delighted by these illustrations. I could really feel the joy, the awkwardness, the companionship. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. You can almost hear the conversation between Pettson and Findus!!! They are delightful :)
