The mug called Drawing was released in 1996 and production was discontinued in 2002. The original artwork is from Lars Jansson’s comic #19 Moomin Winter, as well as from #07 Moomin Builds a House and #13 Club Life in Moomin Valley by Tove Jansson. This mug is a sophisticated combination of drawings from several separate stories. There’s an implication towards the Moomin comic strips. Instead of the traditional comic strip form, Tove Jansson used drawings to separate the images.
