Editorial illustrations, caricatures, realistic portraits, infographics!
The paintings are handmade from scratch - no photo manipulation. I paint both traditionally and digitally.
I am based in Finland close to Helsinki, but I have customers globally. Scroll down and have a look at my portfolio.
Journalism and translation work
I work as a journalist and translator in Swedish and English.
Here are some of my recent articles in English:
Illustrations - Caricatures - Infographics - Vector graphics
Working with Sebastian is fun, easy and inspiring. As an illustrator he masters several different techniques and is eager to meet the thoughts, requests and requirements of those he is working with. Agenda has had the pleasure of co-operating with Sebastian for many years.
As a Visual Producer at Yle (The Finnish Broadcasting Company) for the presidential election 2018, I asked Sebastian Dahlström to draw caricatures of each candidate (8 altogether) for our web site. His caricatures were brilliant. Funny but in a decent way, just as we wanted them, and Sebastians' drawing technique is mind blowing. A strong recommendation!

Sebastian is an amazing illustrator and an overall great guy to work with. He has a broad field of knowledge and is a fast learner. He's helped us out at Lindebarn for a long while, handling very different kinds of graphic design and even animation tasks, in a flexible and diverse manner, always with a positive and helpful attitude. I strongly recommend him.
My customers are among others the Finnish broadcasting company Yle, the think-tanks Agenda and Magma, the branding agency Lindebarn as well as various media companies, organisations and newspapers.
In my spare time I am a bass-player and a swimrunner.
