So much for me and my “enormous” talent for drawing horses - here Maria, why don’t you try a whole Horses and Ponies activity book and see how that goes! Tiny sneak peek of one of my most recent projects, soon to be published by Usborne. Can’t wait!
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!
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!
I finally received the books I illustrated recently. I actually ordered them from an e-book store, because I could not wait any longer for my reference samples to arrive. All of these were published by Czech publisher Albatros recently. I am so proud of how they came out! Love to finally have the actual book home!
I can't remember being so impatient waiting for a book to get back from printers in a very long time. The Chrismas Around the World book which will be published in November this year by major Czech publishing house Albatros was sent to printers last week and I can't wait for it to be done! Meanwhile I decided to upload a few illustrations from the book.
There is more to be seen in the Work section of my website and also on my behance.
Hello there! Long time no see! :-) I have been super busy with this beautiful illustrated project, can't wait to show you more, but I'm afraid it won't be for a while. It is a bit hard to relate to the Christmas themes at this time of a year (38C at the moment here in Bratislava). But it's fun!
