This Stockholm print is illustrated by Linda Fahrlin for Supertrooper Studio. Breath the crisp air filled with the scent of fresh Christmas trees and catch falling snowflakes. The illustration is a little bit of a Stockholm cocktail and a map. It shows the icy water front at Sodermalm, Gamla Stan, Kungsholmen and city. There are also the classic Kaknastornet in the background reaching up in the sky.
You can easily mix & match with other cities in the Tinyworld Collection for a feature wall or chose the places close to your heart. If you don’t see your city in the list send us an email and we’ll try to get around to it!

Rome is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Everywhere you go you can spot an ancient landmark or two. If there’s not a monument, statue or fountain you can be sure there’s a local pizza, gelato or coffee bar. In the Rome illustration we captured a few of the iconic landmarks.
The Rome illustration comes as a print and you can find it in our online store.
The San Francisco art work is finished and features Alcatraz, Golden Gate bridge and more. It is a smaller sized print and looks great when mixed and matched with the other prints in the series. You can find the print here in our online shop.
When illustrating the San Francisco print I looked at streetscapes, how the city is planned and small details and features. Then I took a step back and started to eliminate and clean up the design and what was left was the essentials. I think it’s really interesting to think about what particular corner stones that makes a particular city recognisable? Is it the Golden gate bridge, tram or Alcatraz, that makes us identify the city as an illustration?
The second place to be illustrated in the Tiny World series of illustrations is San Francisco art work. I’ve been working so many late evenings to get this little collection finished. It’s really fun to look at the small details of places and draw them and finally arranging them into place. Here’s a little detail shot from the print.
Aloha, the Waikiki, Honolulu art work is finished!
For a while I’ve been working on a series of illustrations in a smaller format. The graphic elements are more stylised but with a richer colour scheme with a slight retro colour reference.
The Honolulu artworks are available as prints in two sizes. You’ll find them in the online shop.
Recently I’ve enjoyed working on a series of small cityscapes. They are all quite stylised but still have the slight retro feel to them.
Here’s a sneak peak of the Waikiki, (Honolulu, O’ahu, Hawaii) art work that I’ve just finished. I’ll make sure to pop them in the shop once they are all finished.
There’s on little publishing house that over and over again publishes the most awesome titles. Gestalten verlag is by far one of my favourite. Therefore today was a little extra special as they posted my Dublin illustration. A good Tuesday. This Tuesday wasn’t just a Tuesday.
“Gestalten specializes in developing content for aficionados of cutting-edge visual culture worldwide. For us, visual culture is the output resulting from the interrelationship of design, art, architecture, photography, and other visual disciplines with each other as well as other areas such as popular culture and music. In drawing from a variety of influences and combining them in ways not yet seen before, this work is pushing contemporary creative expression to new frontiers.”
This is a limited edition art print based on a hand drawn sketch. There’s only ever twelve of these prints made. It was printed using a variety of techniques such as Riso print and Screen print. The prints where made as a trial and each one of the prints have different characteristics and ink coverage. The prints are available in my online shop here.

The Sligo illustration is available as a print. It includes landmarks like Knocknarea, the majestic Ben Bulben, O’Connell street, The Model, The Garavogue river, Drumcliffe, Yeats grave, Carrowmore toombs, Classiebawn castle to name a few.
Sligo is a town along the Wild Atlantic Way on the North west coast of Ireland. It is a very beautiful area with many attractions and very old heritage sites to visit. We climbed the new Knocknarea track up to the top (have ever only gone the old way up before). Well up there we just managed to take a photo of the new illustration. Then the rain clouds started to assemble. Just before the rain swept in, we hurried down the narrow track through dense pine forrest.
The print is available in our online store.
The Dublin illustration
The illustration is the latest illustration from Supertrooper Studio. It features both the South side of town as well as the north side of town.

The Newcastle illustration features the possibly oldest swimming pool on the east coast of Australia – The Bogey hole – said to derive from the Dharawal name for “to bathe”.

This winter I went back to Stockholm and spent time sketching and researching. It is the city where I grew up, went to school and climbed over the backyard fences in the island of Sodermalm together with my friends.
The Stockholm illustration features Sodermalm, Mosebacke, Gamla Stan, Sergelstorg and the Hotorgsskaporna and Stadshuset where the Nobel dinner is being held to name a few places. Included in the illustration is also the old houses on Sodermalm and the Mosebacke quarters (where I’ve had so many lattes with friends), the Katarina Hissen (elevator), and the Sergelskraporna, Stureplan, Kungstradgarden, and the Royal Dramatic Theatre – Dramaten. They are now available through the online store.
Make Tinytown come alive! We have just made a craft collection of diy craft kit. Meet the different colourful characters of Tinytown and turn them into cute softies. Each DIY craft pack includes two pieces of fabric; one side which is printed with the illustration on a linen/cotton blend and one side of backing material in soft white cotton. And we do have free shipping within Australia. You’ll find the craft packs in our shop.
After the design of the Superplaces Collection, clients and customers asked “can you please do design for our children too” – and so, Tinytown diy craft kit collection was born.
This week we’ve been preparing for Finders Keepers Market in Sydney and Canberra Handmade Market. With an array of new ideas popping up on the drawing table we are working long hours here in the Studio to make them happen.
One of my favorite things to illustrate is projects for children as I get to use all the colours in the toolbox.
One of the first items I made when working in the Supertrooper Studio (before it was even had a name of sorts) was the Happy Alphabet ABC-poster. People we met along the way all told us how much they loved the illustrations, and if you’ve met us or have our card you might have noticed that all our business cards use the ABC-illustrations. As a rule of thumb we run out of these at every event as everyone is looking for their letter 🙂
My personal favorite is the Sun illustration. In fact I liked it so much that you’ll find different versions of the Sun in the Super Places Series as well.
And now, here we are trying to get a small run of pennants for the new Beautiful Day Collection finished. As you might have guessed – there’s a happy Sun in there too.
This weekend I started a rather large painting based on the landscape grid used by the Super places series. It’s fair to say I probably have sketched a mile today before packing up.
As you might know I have an interest in information graphics, grids and systems of various kinds. Here’s a sneakypeak.
Have a nice weekend, and Thank You for this week.
A classic collection of timeless illustrations for the nursery or kids room interior. The Collection consists of happy and friendly illustrations: Meet the friendly Mr Moon, Miss Sunshine and Shining Star in a series of three prints. Available in the shop.
What started as a carefully illustrated observation of the seaside location in Sydney has quickly become a classic design. An illustrated snapshot of the seaside suburb of Manly, Northern Beaches Australia. During the 19th and early 20th century Manly was one of Australia’s most popular seaside holiday resorts. This illustration was also the first one in the Super Places Collection and it is very special as this is where Supertrooper Studio started.
The illustration includes interpretations of The Corso, ferry, penguins, surfer, coffee shops, sea food and Manly Wharf.
The illustration are available printed as wall prints, cushion covers and tea towels in our online store or at our stocksist.
This addition to the Super Places Collection is the Melbourne illustration with a timeless classic feel. Inspired by the lane ways and art life, bikes, trams, secret lane ways, rooftop cinemas and events it evokes memories a la the Melbourne experience.
Represented in the illustration is all the beautiful food experiences had in the city, the Royal Exhibition building, China Town, MCG, the rowing boats of the Yarra, the iconic Melbourne trams, Flinders Street station and what Melbourne always did very well; roof top out door cinema.
The illustration is available as a wall print, tea towel and cushion cover. They are all available in our online shop or at our stockists.
The Sydney illustration has a timeless classic feel. It is inspired by the harbor glamor and time spent catching the Sydney Ferries enjoying the beautiful glittering water with the contrasting skyline.
The illustration features classic city landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to New Year fireworks, city skyline, The Rocks heritage area, Museum of Contemporary Art, Hyde Park and the obligatory fruit bats and sharks of the harbour.
The Sydney illustration was one of the first I made and it is also one of the most complicated to screen print technically as the field of opaque harbour blue is quite large.
The illustration is available as an art print, tea towel and cushion cover in our online store or at our stockists.
Strandhill is located in the beautiful West Coast of Ireland, facing the open wild Atlantic and backed by the Mountain Knocknarea. The mountain is said to host Queen Maeves’s Tomb, and Knocknarea seems to have been a major place of ritual and meeting in the Neolithic era. Today Strandhill is a very friendly place, a small place with a big heart. It also hosts some of the most amazing surf brakes in the West Coast of Ireland, only crowded by seals and the occasional dolphin.
There’s a great friendly local community cultivating land and relationships planting seeds for the future of Strandhill.
The Strandhill illustration is inspired by stories from growing up on the mountain, playing among the ivy clad walls and hiding in the green lush Glen. A very special place for us.
The print is available in our online store or at Shells Cafe, Strandhill, Ireland.
New York, New York! It has been a challenge interpreting this bustling busy city that never sleeps and going through constant change.
I was only young when visiting New York the first time with my parents on holidays. I remember arriving at the airport thinking I had never seen anything so big before. Driving in to the city we saw the skyline of iconic buildings. The city left a lasting impression and when studying graphic design I had the chance to go back exploring the nooks and crannies of Manhattan. I remember just walking turning a corner where I felt there was something worth discovering. Endless photography of details, signage, fire stairs and architectural detailing.
The illustrations takes you for a walk on the High Line, look at Empire State Building, Broadway, Brooklyn Bridge, city lights, cabs, Central Park, Statue of Liberty and hot dog stands. Stroll through East Village and go see a musical on Broadway. Walk past flatiron building and pay a visit to China town. Needless to say – we love New York.
The illustration is available as and art print, tea towel or cushion cover in our online store.
London calling! Jump on the bus! The London cityscape illustration is a recent addition to the Super Places Collection. With so much to offer and with something for everyone (even jellied eel-pie lovers!) a lot of time was spent carefully illustrating the essence of the vibrant city. The illustration is inspired by time spent with very good friends in London, and observations of details in the ever changing but classic city. The London Eye, London Tower, The Shard, Big Ben, Westminster, the locals, the guards, the scones all made it in there.
You’ll find the tea towel, art print, and cushion cover in our online store.
