Oskarsson’s approach to both illustration and storytelling is rather freewheeling. His ability to convey the complexities of human perspective and emotions through captivating, witty illustrations is why his work is being so widely translated. Some of his work can be read in English, Swedish, Danish, Slovenian, French, German, Polish, English, Norwegian and Icelandic.
