Tove Jansson. The creator of Moomin characters. Helsinki. Even though she was a swede/finn I think Moomi's are one of the best finnish things ever. Design, caracter, story, moral and emotional appeal wise.

Tove Jansson August 1914 – 27 June was a Swedish-speaking Finnish novelist, painter, illustrator and comic strip author. Jansson is best known as the author of the Moomin books for children.

'Who Will Comfort Toffle?' by Tove Jansson, 1960 Tove Jansson has been one of my favorite illustrators since I was a little girl. The way she can tell a story wit the colors and shapes sends me straight back to my childhood.
