Finnish Patents

Editorial illustrations for HS Teema about Finnish inventions. These illustrations play with some symbols of Finland and Finnishness. Swan is the national bird of Finland and it's commonly used as a symbol of the nation. The topless guy is based on the painting "Kullervo's Curse" by Akseli Gallen-Kallela. Kullervo is an anti-hero of sorts from the Finnish national epic, Kalevala.
