Pre tých z vás, ktorí ste nedočkavo čakali na to, až sa kniha Poďme objavovať Slovensko objaví na pultoch kníhkupectiev - dobrá správa! Oliver a jeho kamaráti sa vracajú a zahajujú prípravu na prázdninové cestovanie po Slovensku vo všetkých obľúbených kníhkupectvách - napríklad tu.
Those of you who have been waiting for your copies of the Podme objavovat Slovensko book - we’ve got good news! We’ve have shipped most of the boxes last night and there is only a few of them left waiting to be shipped today. Most of you (the best supporters in the world) should have all your goodies by the end of this week. Then, the book is off to the bookstores! Thank you everyone for your support during the crowdfunding campaign! The book is here thanks to you!
Nestáva sa mi často, že by som mala problém s písomným prejavom, ale dnes som úplne bez slov. Naša startlab kampaň dosiahla 100% za menej ako 24 hodín, ste super! Pokračujeme ďalej, nech je knižiek medzi vami a vašimi malkáčmi čo najviac! ĎAKUJEME!!!
I kept a little quite lately, but I really had a good reason - I started working on a project that I have been keeping in my mind for a looong while. To be honest I haven't felt so happy working on a book for quite some time - I get up every morning rushing to my studio and sit there coloring these spreads until late night. I can't show you more, but it is a dream job to me and I really hope it shows!
What is it recently, international shipping week? Another lovely package came in today and I keep flipping over the pages of these tiny board houses ever since! Thanks @yoyo_books for an opportunity to work on these cuties! 💛✏️💪#boardbook #book #childrensbook #classictales #junglebook #threelittlepigs #snowwhite #littleredridinghood #fairytale #illustration #kidlitart #kidlit #tipnaknihu #dnescitam #knihapredeti #leporelo #domcek #house #illustrator #marianeradova #nofilter
I went through the Auzou sticker suitcase which I have blogged about earlier here. And I have to say I haven't realized how many bird species I illustrated in the process! Still, I had so much fun creating them, that I didn't even pay attention to the amount of work I had to do - ha! That's a winner, right? Here is a tiny sneak peek of the Ma Pochette De Gommettes - Animaux de la Montagne and you can order it here
I wish I had more time to take care of this tiny blog of mine. Just completed a really neat space themed sticker book for the wonderful folks at Pat-a-cake with great support of my beloved agent Doreen at Good illustration agency. Can't believe it was my first illustrated book of 2018 and I already feel there is no chance I will have as much fun with any other upcoming projects. (no, really, I bet there are will be great things to work on) This book was a blast and I really wish the tiny readers will find it cool as well. Any publishers who are looking for an illustrator to work on a space themed project (best case scenario - animal characters), please send me an emai! Ha! I'll be posting more, but do follow my instagram and facebook for more recent work! See you there!
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!
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
Was so happy yesterday to find my packaging illustration in stores finally! Did a series of these together with the fabulous studio Pergamen from Slovakia earlier this year and it seems they are now out and about. Love it!
I got a really nice surprise in my mailbox last week! Finally received first copies from illustrated notebooks I did for Notes in Slovakia- they will also be available in Czech republic soon. I am really excited as this is a great way how to get in touch with kids in my homeland. If you'd like to see more of these covers, check out this link
I had to start very early this week, as there is a lot of work ahead of me. Here is a quick post from the animal card game for kids I am currently working on. Hope you like it!
The Penguin saga continues. Just wanted to share a few sneak peek shots of my most recent work. So very happy to be working with the great people at Usborne again! Hope your weekend is worth a 10 points!
New work! Each time I get so busy at work it becomes unbearable, I chose to do a personal piece instead. Not sure, if it was a good idea though, now I have to sketch new illustrations on a Sunday. Have a good weekend and eat your fruits!
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.
