I think if you know anything about the legendary Swedish Mid-Century designer Olle Eksell, it's probably regarding his 'ÖGON CACAO' design (the poster with those tasty looking eyes) BUT I'm guessing many people do not know that Eksell was such a brilliant doodler!

I've been a fan of Eksell's work for quite some time but I recently came across this doodle page of characters and I was astonished by a) how ridiculously fantastic they were and b) how similar my NOD characters resembled them! Great find and I can’t stop coming back to this page. My favorite is definitely the little puff ball in the bottom row middle column. I'm naming him Buff Bagginswell. Which is your favorite?

 

P.S. I wish my name was as cool as Olle Eksell!
