It was by drawing cartoons that Norwegian artist Øistein Kristiansen got started on his path. One day, his dad saw him drawing and remarked on how good the illustration was. Øistein was thrilled with the praise and knew he wanted to dedicate his time to doing what he loved the most.
In his early days, Øistein would draw caricature cartoons of people on the street. With hard work, he began working as a cartoonist for newspapers and magazines, including Vogue, Elle and Mad Magazine. Øistein later began a career in television, where he hosted his own show, and he has recently become a YouTube star.
Not only does Øistein draw cartoons, but he is also very crafty, constructing creatures out of cardboard boxes and fashioning animals of any objects that he can get his hands on. His advice to kids is to just start making things with their hands, and, once they start, their creativity will be unlocked!
