Jaakko Pallasvuo has a name that sounds like a smoked Finnish delicacy and an aesthetic that blends wintry spareness with controlled riots of emotion.

Pallasvuo’s production rate and versatility are both impressive. There are the books and zines, a rewarding and oft-updated Flickr account, an alarming knack for painting beautiful scenes of distress and dischord, and an entertainingly stream-of-conscious tumblr to top it all off.

The website is set up so that it’s easy and fun to tour the premises of Pallasvuo’s impressive brain. Think of it as a mini-vacation of the mind, and eyeballs.
