Petteri Tikkanen

The artist presents himself:

I’m a comics artist from northern Savo. My best known cartoon characters are Kanerva and Eero. I also do illustrations, and I’ve also been teaching the art of illustrations. When I get bored of drawing I dress up in tights and perform as the superhero Black Peider. I’ve also created some comics about him.
