Illustration – Kuvitus


I’m Christina (Chride) Lassheikki. I’m based in Helsinki, Finland, and study game design and production at Aalto University, and I’m one half of the duo Fairy Trade Coffee. I also do graphic design. I’m available for freelance work and commissions. You can contact me at classheikki @ for commercial work, or through my tumblr art blog for personal commissions.

I especially enjoy working in the realms of scifi and fantasy, and making food illustrations. My main mediums are watercolor, colored pencil and digital, but I also work in 3D.

Past clients include: Aalto University, Spektrum rf, Elevbladet, Florakören, Kyrkslätt Scouter
