My name is Sedki Alimam and I am a graphic designer and digital illustrator based in Uppsala, Sweden. I am passionate about both character and poster design.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with character design and my inspiration usually comes from a lot of unusual places (as you may remember Bic Man from last week)! Back from my last visit to Ikea, I was about to assemble a piece of furniture. I bumped into a simple character, many of you have probably seen on Ikea’s instruction manuals, thus, I decided to call him Ikea Man. After a few hours of illustration and childhood cartoon flashbacks, I came up with these.
