Block figures by Ingela P Arrhenius

While glancing through Grain Edit, I came across the work of Sweden-based illustrator Ingela P Arrhenius. One of her pastimes is creating characters from painted wooden blocks. Completely charming! A bag of blocks...

...becomes little animals and people transported through a mid-century time machine. To meet more of Ingela's characters, visit the wood figures section of her blog.
