The Land Long Forgotten

Here’s a “fantasy themed” piece I finished recently. It took quite a few dots to finish but I think it paid off in the end. I used a pencil to make the first sketches, then did rough colouring with a black marker. Details and dots are drawn with a Micron 01.

Available as cool tote bags in Society 6. Check it out!


Ps. I did the first sketches while listening to Midlake’s new album Antiphon. I can recommend it as a source of inspiration. :)

About Micke Nikander

Hi! I'm a graphic designer and artist from Finland. I like creating pictures from scratch as much as documenting the wonders of the world through a lens. No, actually I like drawing more.. :) -Micke


  1. Nice work, the style has an old school muumi-feel to it :)

  2. There’s black, there’s simple black, then there’s well-done and well-thought out black. Very rich darks in your drawings, more than just simple black and white, you also get a nice and subtle tonal range without grey involved.
