Mica has always had an urge to create worlds and stories through images. When she sees potential in a place or an opportunity to tell a story she gets swept away by this bubbling feeling of expectation. As a member of the crew at Tomorrow her part was to bring the images to life in Photoshop. She has had the privilege to work with everything from small villas in the Scandinavian woods to big projects internationally.
After some years she started to dream about returning to her childhood home by the sea. She longed for the light and silence. So when she was approached with an offering to teach at YRGO she decided to leave both her position as senior and the city. Today she splits her time between trying her best to pass on her passion for images to future artists in the classroom and spending the rest of her time working from home with the ocean just around the corner.
Illusive Images is a Swedish 3D studio founded by Daniel Reuterswärd and Johannes Lindqvist. The studio focuses on high end architectural visualisations where photo-realism is key and every detail counts. The images we produce should not only sell a place to live, it should sell a new life.
Daniel Reuterswärd is a Stockholm-based architectural visualization artist. Before starting Illusive Images Daniel had his own company for 3 years working in the same field. After working alone for years he felt it was time for a new challenge and found a perfect match for starting a new 3D studio with Johannes.
Johannes Lindqvist is from southern Sweden and got thrown into architectural visualization when he got employed by IKEA Communications. After 5 years at IKEA making images for the worlds most printed catalog, he felt it was time for new challenges. One employment later, starting Illusive Images with Daniel became the obvious path to walk.
