About



Hello, my name is Sigurður Oddsson, Siggi Odds for short. I was born in Reykjavík, Iceland, where I live and work, but spent a large part of my childhood in Vancouver, Canada.

I work in illustration and design, working primarily with people in the music, fashion and culture industries as well as making identities for businesses/people whose vision I can relate to. Although I have done work in various styles, I'd like to think this collection of work can be seen as some sort of whole, or shows how I like to approach things at any rate.

I am constantly experimenting and expanding my visual vocabulary, as can be seen on my blog where I post work in progress and experiments, aptly named Odds.
