  45. Antonia says:

    Hi Johan,

    your art is truly amazing. I do photo and drawing as well but I have never been able to find a way to connect both of my passions. the way you do is so inspiring. i was wondering how you do it? do you draw and then scan the images and then photoshop them into the photographs? just wondering because they really blend very well.
    all the best in your life and the art to come!

  46. admin says:

    Thanks! I use photoshop and a wacom tablet to create my pictures

  47. Chelsea says:

  69. Johan Thörnqvist插画作品 | Jackchen Design 1984 says:

    [...] 拍一张照片,在照片上叠加上你的想象。这听起来有点造梦师的味道!来自瑞典的插画家Johan Thörnqvist就想到了这样的创意,让定格下的一张张照片转瞬成为了一个个带着忧伤的故事。 [...]

  70. andrea posada says:

    About Pricilla Gone Missing….Loved the concepts, but what about the rest of the game?

  75. andrew says:

    wonderfully magic

  76. Tove says:

    Underbart! Kan man köpa tavlor utan att beställa från USA nånstans?

  77. admin says:

    Tackar så mkt! Just nu kan man bara köpa via USA, om du inte vill köpa direkt av mig dvs. Men det blir nog dyrare :)

  78. nj says:

    your works are awesome!!!

  79. HARRY BARRY says:

    Very beautiful work Johan, absoloutly stunning. I could eat it.

  80. wetcolor says:

    Your picture is full of imagination, I think you are a good writer.

  81. wetcolor says:

    Haha, some ordinary photos were made into a beautiful picture, besides the tool to help, I think inspiration comes from life meticulous observation, life is not lack of beauty, but the lack of eyes to find beauty

  82. wetcolor says:

    I will always pay attention to your work they are beautiful

  83. Jbran says:

    Your work comes from such a simple idea, but turns into such a complicated design that has me scanning the entire piece to see what you have created! I just simple love it! Keep doing it, because you do it so well!

  84. laq says:

    like so many others i’d love to know how you do this… just a hint? i’m not ‘artist’ like you.. but it would be fun to doodle this way!
    photoshop? vellum overlays? how??? please *on knees, looking pathetic*

  85. admin says:

    I use photoshop and a wacom tablet

  86. Marta says:

    I love your artwork. It is a simple idea but hard to achieve such awesome results. I have just bought a poster in inprnt but actually with the cost of the delivery to Europe and the extra payment in the customs office I was thinking if you are thinking in offering the service directly from Europe. That would be great news.

  87. Cindy says:

    You are fabulous!!!!!!!!
    I like your work:)
    do you have facebook?
    i want to follow you!

  88. sammyjayner says:

    I absolutely love your work and was just wondering what first inspired you to start this kind of mixed media?

  89. burak says:

    Hi! Loved your artwork, your imagination is cool!

  90. Mónica Sastre says:

  93. Hirtenmaina says:

    I love your style, keep it up :D

  94. Albert says:

    Man!! you’ve impressed me!
    Have you ever thought about make an instagram account to show your illustrated photos??? With me you would have a follower!

  95. Liliane says:

    Great Work!!!!

  96. Carmen says:

    Hi Johan! I’m a fine arts student whos currently working on her Final College Proyect and you’re one of my inspirations and artistic point of reference. I would be very grateful if you could send me or show me any information of you as an artist (like a bio, or portfolio) and your art, which is fantastic. As I’m from Spain, I don´t understand swedish, but I manage pretty good with english :) Thank you very much and sorry if I bother you. Regards!

  97. inge says:

    love your work!

  98. Ale says:

    Hi Johan
    I’m curious: Are you available for custom illustration?
    I mean, I was watching your work and I thought: I would love an illustration yours using an specific picture as base. (Please don’t take it wrong, I value your artistic work, but perhaps you are open to petitions). Are there any possibility? How much would be that kind of work?
    Best wishes.
