Hello there! I still haven't managed to go get a haircut, but I did get some neat samples of the Alice in Wonderland book I illustrated last Winter! I have to say I was a bit shocked by the haircut that Alice got on the cover, but now I think it looks really fun and hope the little ones will like it, too, haha! The book is full of touch and feel elements which are really quirky. It should be available on Amazon or Bookdepository (if not yet, then very soon). Enjoy your Summer and don't go down the rabbit hole!
Where are you headed in this hellish weather? It's so hot outside I am happy to look at some ice and snow on the screen in front of me. Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!
I know I have kept silent on this tiny little facebook place of mine for a while - would be nice if I could say I was on a vacation, but unfortunately, I wasn't. The reason there was not a single word uttered here is simple - I was working on a set of children's books! If you ever think of illustrating 4 books at once, stop yourself right there. I love my job, that is true, but I also love chocolate, and if I ate 4 kilos of it at once, I would probably not love it that much and puke as well. (I have not puked from illustrating these, don't worry!) Anyways, as much as I wish I was smarter and allowed myself more time for these babies, I am so so so happy I could work on the titles like Pinocchio or Goldilocks and Three Bears (all time favorite of my little sister!) Will keep you posted when they appear on our planet. Off to finally cleaning my place and getting a haircut. Hello, life!
Got this in my mailbox today! Little Children's Puzzle Pad from Usborne is now available on Amazon and other online stores. Cover by fabulous Manola Caprini :-) Yay!
It is always so nice when people notice your work somewhere online. It just gives one a feedback for all the efforts that all illustrators put into promotion, social media and blogging. Here is my work for Yoyo Books, the legendary story of Alice in Wonderland, on Sketcher. https://sketcher.startitup.sk/maria-neradova-skraslila-svojimi-ilustraciami-knihu-alica-v-krajine-zazrakov/
I am so proud to show a little sneak peek of my most recent work for the wonderful French publisher Auzou. This seasons book is a part of the Mon Animagier series and Auzou has already produced quite a few books in the pack. I think it must be a blast for every little kid to have one of these (I know I would enjoy this quite a lot!) since it is full of moving mechanisms and flaps. Les Saisons book should be available online in a couple of months, I'll keep you posted!
Long time no see! But hey, I got my illustrator's samples of the color and sticker books I did for Yoyo Books last year. The covers look really neat with the black background! (wish all children's publishers would be more black friendly haha) I'll keep you posted when these go online for sale. Happy Wednesday!
I found this tissues for kids in a grocery store near my parent's house so I figured I would just get them as they are covered in my illustrations. Now I sneak around the house at night and secretly stock up all the bags and purses that belong to my family members. I hope these cuties can bring some smiles to the faces of your family members as well, despite the teary eyes or runny noses. Monday, here we go! #illustration #illustratedproduct #pergamenstudio #harmony #tissues #kids
This week I have to finish up two books. That's the moment when you don't know what your name is anymore or which folder to open when you turn on your computer in the morning. But then Duro, my fellow illustrator, comes to the studio, looks at my screen and says I drew both George Bush Sr and Barbara Bush in the picture. And here they are! Sitting on a bench on a lovely autumn day. Yeah! So this year, we can all look forward to a book full of seasons featuring the Bushes. Toast to that! #illustration #kidlitart #seasonsbook #auzou #autumn #trumpneni #anebude
Started my week with this illustration for a kids mag. I figured I might as well have some fun since it is Monday and it doesn't usually get any better than a monkey fart. Stay strong and have fun!

A book about schol goes off to the printers! Up next are a few Christmas titles, yay! From my personal experience it is much better to work on these icy books in February than in August (been there, done that). Just in case you needed to know. I'll keep you posted!

So here I go - a girl raised on legos, electric trains and car race tracks illustrates a set of sweet pink stickers of princesses. I have no clue how this happened to me! Haha! But it was fun and I always enjoy working with the lovely people at Auzou so much that I couldn't resist taking this on! I hope I coped with dignity, keeping the six year old me in mind! You can purchase online on amazon.
I've got a few lousy shots here that I took with my phone at my exhibition opening today in Piestany, Slovakia. All of the illustrations look so sweet in the huge formats, I really hope children will like them and will have lots of fun. I can't say how much thankful I am to my dear friend Kristina Hroncekova, who designed the space and to the Piestany library director Gitka Galova, who is such a great supporter of Slovak illustration.
Big news! Next week, we'll be opening a lovely holiday exhibition based on my book Christmas Around the World in Piestany here in Slovakia. The concept was created by Kristina Hroncekova, www.kristinahroncekova.sk/ who is an absolute master in designing exhibitions. Not to forget the wonderful Gitka Galova, who's so persistent with her ideas in the Piestany Library. If you'll be around, don't forget to stop by, the whole thing should last up until January 2017. There will be more info on the site of the library in Piestany www.kniznica.sk
I finally received the Usborne Little Chrildren's Activity book for Christmas! It looks so lovely! It was a great honor for me to cooperate on this book last winter and it is such a nice thing to get the actual book in mailbox. Almost hugged the mail woman yesterday, hah! If you'd like to get the books it is now available on Amazon. Have a lovely Holiday season!
So happy to announce another book with my illustrations is out! HIstoires en pyjama pour les tout-petits was created under the wings of the fab Editions Lito and I had a blast working on this title. Will try to post some images form the book soon!
