Ole Ahlberg is a Danish artist best known for his unique depictions of Hergé's famous comic book characters Tintin, Captain Haddock and others. These characters are placed in a new artistic environment, which often has erotic connotations. He was even sued by Tintin’s copyright holders and won the case, as the judge ruled that parody is allowed under international copyright law.
