Janne Kutja is an artist and designer born in the small town of Tuusula in Southern Finland. Janne has drawn cars all his life, but started to focus more on hot rods and customs at the age of ten. Much of his inspiration came from US magazines that included the work of artists such as Thom Taylor, Steve Stanford and Chip Foose. He tried to copy their drawing styles, but it was very difficult because he had only colored pencils to use, while their sketches were done using markers and airbrush, something Janne didn't know back then. Janne's interest in cars encouraged him to to study industrial design at the Lahti Polytechnics Institute of Design. In 2008 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lahti.[1]

Janne has always built model cars and such, and kustoms were a pretty natural thing for him. His favorite era is the 1940s and early 1950s, but he can also dig the clean 1960s stuff as well. He is partial to the old style, but he also like older cars built with modern touches as well, and he even like to try his hand at new car styling too. Janne does everything from custom concepts and illustrations for private customer to work for big companies and magazines. He has designed cars for magazines and people from all over the world. He works mostly with Copic and AD markers, colored pencils and Copic ink with airbrush. He also does traditional painting with water, oil and acrylic colors.[1]

Janne has also built several full size cars as well during the years, and he is currently working on a 1947 Ford club coupe that has been chopped, channeled and converted into a hardtop. Another car he currently have is a Volvo PV 544 that he chopped several years ago. Janne has also done a couple of top-chops for friends as well. [1]
