Say hei to Heikala.

Finnish born Heikala is an illustrator who is currently slaying the internet, and you can see why.

Illustration isn’t easy. Especially when it comes to creating wistful, delicate pieces of work that spark the imagination. That’s where Heikala illustration work is leading the charge in the internet fandom stakes. 

Born in Finland Laura Heikkala and studying graphic design at the Lahti Institute of Design in Finland. Laura describes her work as ‘Cute’ and we definitely agree.

Clearly we aren’t the only ones as well, we’ve seen Laura’s fan base steadily grow to over 140k followers on twitter and near 350k on Instagram.

We love that the fact she is attracting so much attention. Someone who can tell a delicate and emotionally fused story in much the same way that Emmeline Pidgen can in one image needs to be recognised. 

A few examples of Heikala Illustration are below.
