Authors Portrait for “Svart Advent”

“A Darker Shade Of Sweden” or “Svart Advent” as the book is called in Swedish is a collection of 18 noir stories, written by Swedens top crime authors. It is published by BookMark and in cooperation with Stadsmissionen it’s sold to help the homeless.

My part of the project was to make a group portrait off all the authors in the book in a noir party setting. The illustration is made with lead pencil and ink.

The illustration is found inside the book, as well as on the cover.  I did not make the cover, just to be clear.
