Lars Jansson (8 October 1926 – 31 July 2000) was a Finnish author and cartoonist.[1] A native of Helsinki, Jansson was the son of the sculptor, Viktor Jansson, and the illustrator, Signe Hammarsten-Jansson. His siblings included an older sister, writer Tove Jansson, and an older brother, Per Olof Jansson. In 1958, his sister assigned to him the writing of the Moomin comic strip, which he also drew from 1961 to 1974. Between 1990 and 1992, Jansson worked with Dennis Livson to develop the concept of the Moomin animated series in Japan. His daughter, Sophia, worked together with him in 1993 to help manage the production of a new series of Moomin strips which Sophia now manages solely.[2][3]
