My name is Gustaf Lord and I am an illustrator and comic book artist who occasionally ventures into the uncharted areas of fine art. I share my working hours between freelance commissions under the Studio Lord banner and illustrations for an interactive education software by Liber Infinitas Learning.

Off hours I am also working on a creator owned graphic novell, based on a true story of a Cold War era spy central hidden in plain sight in a sleepy Swedish town. Follow the work on the Tumblr production blog.
