• Create your own calendar in 2018!

    There is only one thing better than creating: creating together. Okay, now I’ve sacrificed honesty for a bit of PR, in fact nothing gets me more panicky than creating with other people around me, but the situation is slightly different now: I’m inviting you to create a calendar with me for 2018! Monthly downloadable calendars […]

  • Graphic designer in the making – sketchbook tour

    Those who read the blog will not be surprised if I say that I’m not exactly a fan of institutional art eductation. Teaching art is desparately hard: on the one hand the student needs to see if he is on the wrong track, on the other hand creativity is a very fragile thing, which can […]

  • Alternative advent calendar – December art challenge

    I’ve always had mixed feelings about advent calendars: on the one hand it is very exciting to open a little package every single day and so to get prepared for the holidays, but on the other hand I absolutely hate useless junk – and collecting 24 useful, tiny objects as present is one hell of […]

  • Feeling the fear…

    I’m looking at my to-do list: I should paint, try new techniques so I have things to write blog posts about and take pictures of. But I should also cook, clean my apartment, and I haven’t met my best friend in ages. Plus my cat can’t wait for me to play with him a bit. […]

    As we all know, setting aside only 15 minutes a day for creating is real nourishment for the soul. Not to mention that it will have a very good effect on your creativity if it becomes part of your daily routine. It’s pity that it doesn’t really work – not even for me, even though […]

  • Let’s make a zine – a therapeutic evening

    There is something liberating about creating something that has no purpose whatsoever. It was with this thought in mind that I made my own little zine a couple of weeks ago. So what is a zine? To put it very simply, a zine is a unique or small circulation book/magazine. It is usually self published and […]

  • The times when I’m not creative…

    The most frequent answer to the question “How to be an illustrator?” is: practice every day – and you can believe me, I have typed this question into Google gazillion times. But what happens when you just can’t? The past couple of weeks have been rather difficult for me due to some personal changes in […]

  • Behind the scenes #6 – The power of painting small

    Those few who have seen my illustrations in real life know that most of them are A5-A6 size images. This habit of painting small is not based on an academically supported decision, but on an observation of the mere fact: it is simply good to paint watercolours in small size. What’s more, it is liberating, […]
