Welcome! My name is Frida Hammar, I freelance as an illustrator, animator and comic artist.
I live in the north of Sweden and have always loved to draw. For me, visual expression has a much stronger impact than just textual communication.
To communicate, and make a change in this world, I believe we need both.
If you're interested in my work, I'll be happy to hear from you! Contact me at:
