The beautifully human (and humane) systems intelligence book Being Better Better is now out on Amazon as a self-publishing item. The book, which I got to illustrate, is written by the amazing trio of Raimo P.

The illustration process was a joyful romp, really. The text reads so smoothly and makes such easy sense, I was able to just sit back, relax and let the images flow. Also, working with systems thinkers like Raimo and Esa is a pleasure, as I am given all the freedom I can carry.
If you’re in need of uplifting yet content-rich summer reading, this could be just the book for you. Check it out here.
