Playful illustrations with humor hiding in the details

There’s something to be said about details. Supposedly holding the ‘Devil,’ details are always piling up to give us a better picture, usually bringing clarity, information and certainty. That is not what I get from these drawings by illustrator Mattias Adolfson. I’m getting something like… OCD of the imagination.

Adolfson’s meticulously detailed drawings are an exploration in madness, of the most pleasurable degree. His doodles often depict dizzying worlds, overwhelmingly complex technology, or homes with an over zealous interior decor. The level of detail in his drawings actually forbids you from experiencing his pieces as a whole. I often find myself looking intensely at every nook and cranny. I wonder how long they take?
