As a children’s book illustrator and comic-book artist living in Oslo, Norway, Øyvind Torseter often finds inspiration in the moments before sleep.
“In the morning, I make breakfast while my wife and daughters get up. We drink juice and eat bread with cheese or jam, or sometimes we’ll have oat porridge with fruit and nuts. Then we follow the girls to school and I walk to my studio afterward, looking forward to getting a cup of coffee and drawing. The first two to three hours at work are sacred. I try to avoid being distracted during this time—I don’t look at emails
