Tuulikki Pietilä, 1917-2009.

The Finnish graphic artist Tuulikki Tooti Pietilä has passed away. Born in Seattle, Pietilä studied art in Turku, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Paris. Though an established artist and professor in her own right, she is perhaps best remembered for inspiring the feisty character Tooticky in her life partner Tove Jansson's series of Moomin books and comic strip.
