moomin!



I might be the last person on the planet to discover the world of Moomin by Finnish comic artist Tove Jansson. I can't get enough of these drawings! My Mom introduced me to this comic strip from the 50's-60's after she spent some time in Finland last year. The Finns are so crazy about Moomin they have created an amusement park in their honor. The Japanese are big fans as well cementing the Moomins status as officially CUTE.


The characters are outrageously cute and I love the prominence of the natural world in the stories.


The Mimble is especially endearing. I'm currently working on a design for a doll and she is kind of my muse.
