Reading time!

Look what I have got! A spectacular book with a very wise and to the point preface by David Hockney. He confirmed a conclusion we have reached with some other illustrators - friends: if you cannot draw you are an artist. If you can - you are an illustrator. You are also hanging there in a limbo between graduating from an art school and actually making a living.

Have a great weekend! There are some more fashiony collaborations on the horizon for next couple of months!

Now I am off to do some Friday evening socialising (hence the Chanel varnish!) Yay!

A new cover

The production started in August so that after several versions a cover for a selection of Christmas short stories by top Polish writers was published in two versions - silver and gold. When I rushed to get it while in Kraków, in two bookshops I was told that it was sold out! A silver version was on display in Znak's own bookshop but the place was closed for Christmas so I had to get it somewhere elese ( I got a gold version and I promise to show it to you soon).

The ribbon is actually a photograph! The stars were designed in Illustrator and are based on folk christmas tree decorations.
