• So you want to be an illustrator - Part 1 | Illustration types

    So you want to be an illustrator | Vol. 1. – a.k.a. „can you make a living out of this”?

    I have met the question above more than I can count, and this is partly the reason why I spent nearly 7 useless years studying Architecture before realising I would become an illustrator. If you are 16-18, announcing to your parents that you are going to become an illustrator, or you decide at 40-something that […]

    5 new illustubers to follow

    If someone asked me the question: where did you learn it all? I would answer without a hesitation: on Youtube. Illustubers (youtubers who are illustrators by profession) talk about nearly everything related to the area: techniques, motivation, creative blocks, and not least, business. I have already shared my 5 favourite illustubers in this post, but […]

    5 beginner watercolour mistakes and how to avoid them

    I have been convinced of the benefits of teaching watercolour workshops these past 2 months, but I had hardly thought I would also learn a lot from my students. I tended to overlook some information as being ‘unimportant’ or ‘obvious’, and it turned out they are neither unimportant, nor obvious. So in my experience, these […]

    HiFest 2018 – Travel with me

    This year I finally visited HiFest – which was lucky, as this was going to be the last Hastings Illustration Festival. I recorded my experiences in a vlog. Even though it’s in Hungarian, I don’t talk too much, so it’s worth taking a look to get the vibes of an illustration festival.

  • Illustration variations - The Nutcracker (with ballet video)

    Illustration variations – The Nutcracker

    Is Christmas Christmas without the Nutcracker? Even though Hoffmann’s tale is really sweet, I hardly think it would have reached this many kids, had there been no ballet created by Tschaikovsky. Before creating my own series, I took a look at the Nutcracker-literature, and found some wonderful pieces that I’d like to share with you […]

    Create your own calendar in 2019!

    Creating one image is no big deal. But making a whole series of pictures is a grand task, and the result is a piece of art, even if ONE of the images would not qualify as art. As soon as you start making more than two images in the same style, you realise that A) […]
