I am a Danish illustrator based in beautiful Lund, Sweden. I like to draw chickens and grandmothers, teacups and ghosts. I believe in the alchemy of metaphor, and in illustration as a tool for communicating complexity in a gentle way. 

I am available for commissions and licensing. You are very welcome to contact me at hello@signegabriel.com

Me and my work


I work with magazine editors, publishers, public institutions and small companies alike.

My strength is creating relatable characters, an attention to detail and a whimsical touch of humor, as well as the tactile quality that comes with work made by hand.  

In my children’s book work, I aim to use my characters, colours and metaphors as a way to explore and explain difficult topics such as mental illness, loss and grief. For both children as well as adults, stories can cast new light on these harder sides of life.

In my editorial work, I specialize in the fields of fairytales, home, nature and food (I specialize in this in the rest of my life, too).

My personal projects include posters, paintings, wall calendars, comics, jumping jacks, greeting cards, paintings and murals.

Things that inspire me are the people and items I encounter in everyday life, old stories about enchanted forests, nature, picture books and patterns on porcelain and textiles.


I work by hand in mediums such as watercolor, ink, coloured pencils and gouache, paying an occasional visit to copic markers and acrylic paint. On special days I might even play around with linoleum and cardboard printing.

I love the feeling of a textured, heavy piece of quality paper between my fingers and enjoy long, nerdy conversations about pigments.
