picturebook news & logo for Erska

I was absent for a long time, because I've been working on my picturebook.
I finally finished it and now I'm looking for a publishing company. I'm totally excited!
Wish me good luck!
And of course I'm still a full time Chinese language and philosophy teacher.

In the meantime I designed a logo for a small carpentry/ renovation company named Erska, owned by two wonderful girls.
I only did the logo, the website and other things were designed by other people.
You can see the website here.

And here is the logo.


illustrations in FUSS

I made two illustrations for the text written by Martyna Orlik, in online FUSS magazine.
It's about recovering after a heartbreak and then falling in love again.
Here is the link to the magazine. My illustrations are on page 67 & 69.



this time I'm running philosophical workshops for adults in De Revolutionibus Books & Cafe.
The first workshop is about identity, the second about world views.
I designed the poster as well.


vegan drawing diary

I've been working on my picturebook again, but I also draw everyday things in the meantime.

This one is a beginning of a new series - my vegan drawing diary, as a drawing continuation of my existing vegan photo diary
I made a new blog for these drawings.

/permanent markers and color pencils
(I don't have a scanner again, so this is a poor digital photo, I will scan it later)


poster for my workshops

This is the second poster I designed for my drawing philosophy workshops.
there will be some additional information, but I like it this way.

Almost every Saturday in De Revolutionibus Books & Cafe.

as U can see, I'm the deer.



I printed some postcards with my pencil drawings
and with my twin peaks inspired permanent markers pictures (on recycled paper).

The pencil ones are quite minimalist and have a winter feeling.

If you want to see closer, most of them are here.
For better view of twin peaks series, go there.

please email me if you're interested.


marcel & a cat

some random sketches.
I don't know why it's getting cute when I draw without references.

Cracow without boundaries?

I designed a logo and quite a minimalist booklet for the documentary film about the situation of people (especially women)
with disabilities who live in Cracow.

this film was a part of the bigger project,
it's aim was to diagnose problems and then change our city so it would be more available for people with different disabilities
(basically it was made by students and teachers from Jagiellonian University and University of Science and Technology.)

I feel so honored that I was chosen to design the logo, I'm so happy that I had an opportunity to work on something that really matters.


Today at my workshops I showed a book "Książę w cukierni"  to the kids,
because Joanna Concejo is one of my favorite illustrators.

I don't like the text written by Marek Bieńczyk, I wish the book didn't have any text at all, so I didn't read it at my workshops,
I only showed them the picture part and they loved it.

I asked them to tell the story by themselves ( kids didn't know what was the book about originally ).

After that we tried to make our own book the same way -and this is the result.

I love the dog eating garbage from the bin and the girl warming her hands at night.
(only the tree, the flying bird and the bench is drawn by me.)
(photos below show the big drawing before it was folded into the book)
