Contributor - Mathias Johansson
Sydney based artist Mathias Johansson was born and raised in a small town in Sweden. Even before he could read he was fascinated by comics and storytelling with pictures, which ever since then has inspired him in his art. In his early twenties he moved to the capital Stockholm where he started working as a graphic designer and illustrator. After a few years of design work, he again felt the urge of moving on to new exotic places. When not working he likes to spend as much time as possible under water.
Mathias Johansson is the creator of comic anti-hero and the author and illustrator of two children's books about a crazy monkey, that dreams about traveling to new distant places...

Enjoys doing and undoing, drawing, sculpting, ceramicsing, cutting and fitting, and not so much folding clothes. Dave would much prefer to remember, that way he'll never forget.
