Hans Nissen


Hans Nissen is a family man living in Lahti with his wife and two
daughters. In the spare time he tries to document his life and surroundings
in comics that are mostly autobiographical. Over the years he has worked as
a translator, letterer, commercial illustrator, bookshop owner, colorist,
writer and graphic designer, but is probably best known for his publishing
venture Kreegah Bundolo and his own comics. In 2008 Hans quit drawing for
several years, but decided to give it another go in 2014 and was soon hired
to design the visuals for Love & Anarchy film festival 2015. He has since
tried to develop a looser approach to drawing, but is still probably the
slowest artist in Finland spending most of his time worrying about his work
instead of actually working. He has published several self-published
booklets of comics and prose of which the most recent are Saatanan
perkeleet (2016) and Sokea piste (2017).
