Kronblom by Elov Persson
Kronblom (1939)

In 1927, Elov Persson started drawing one of Sweden's most popular comics, 'Kronblom', in the magazine Vart Hem. Because of its popularity, 'Kronblom' has become an icon of laziness and distrust of authority in Sweden.

August och Lotta

A year after the creation of 'Kronblom', Persson created 'August och Lotta', about an eternal triangle between the two main figures and the third party, Russinkvist. When Elov Persson died, his son, Gunnar Persson, continued 'Kronblom', while 'August och Lotta' was continued by Elov Persson's other son, Ingvar Persson.
