Among his numerous accomplishments he has been selected for the prestigious Bologna Children's Book Fair Award three times and in 2008 he was awarded the prize for Best Illustrator from the Swedish Library Association.
Staffan's wordless picture book, BEAR, (Seven Stories Press) has attracted great acclaim:
‘An excellent example of silent narrative conveying feelings of entrapment and resistance, feelings that are not easily described – or even understood – but still necessary to witness, to resolve.’
''Bear' is an outstanding graphic story–an example of the power of images to communicate complicated feelings.'
Staffan is originally from Lund in Sweden and he trained at Edinburgh College of Art before moving to London.
His clients include Seven Stories Press, Triangle Square Books, Penguin Random House, Chicken House Books, Kudos, MEC Global, Barrington Stoke, The Macrobert Theatre, and The Bank of Dreams & Nightmares.
