Tove Jansson’s Moomin Comic Strip, vol 1.



Tove’s commentary on modern art ;D


And her thoughts on being an artist.


The beauteous Snorkmaiden, beloved of Moomin.


The Moomins go to The Riviera. Snorkmaiden meets “The Great Little Audrey Glamour,” (Audrey Hepburn).

And meets a Riveria rake.

The Mymble and Snorkmaiden encounter adorable pirates and promptly fall in love.


But even in the early 1950s Pirates love rum.

    The strip of Snork Maiden trying on lipstick, I have that on a mug :). It’s actually my favourite mug. I think it’s so charming. Now I also get to see the bikini part!

    1. Snorkmaiden cracks me up. I love when she and the Mymble get together and chase pirates.
