Jonas Sundberg’s Space Deer is a comic that features Space Deer – almost only Space Deer. Space Deer is quiet, emphatic and lonely. The project came about because of their love for deers and just practicing.
I really like deers and I had just finished another comic about astronauts so it was just what I had bubbling in my soup. I didn’t plan anything ahead so their design changed a little bit in every comic.
My inspiration for this project have been mostly my own feelings and dreams, I’m very fascinated by dream-analysis so I go about this very much as if I was writing my own dreams. Every comic is very specifically about my mental state, development and hopes at the time.
My style is simple but pretty distinctive I would say? I get embarrassed when I try to explain what I do haha. Some inspirations is Jake Lawrence, the comic Help us Great Warrior, Ryan Andrews, Akira Toriyama, Eiichiro Oda, Ethan Smith, Julian Glander, Lottie Pencheon and Matt Goop(etc).
My advice to any artist would be to keep going, try to not be afraid. Always try to pour a little bit more of yourself into it and be brave. Be patient and rest a lot if you can (if you can’t it might be even more important to rest).
