Coming out in the US in fall, Queen of the Moon, a 44-card deck written by Stacey Demarco from Australia, and illustrated by me, and published by Rockpool Publishing. It was a fun (but crazy busy) job, and I appreciated so much how much artistic freedom I got from both the author and the publisher.
Several more card decks, cd-covers, book covers, luxury beauty product packagings are all in the works, which are all exciting (stay tuned). Very, very busy season for me, indeed!
Lots of work were coming to me in the past months, some are very enjoyable and exciting! Hard to catch up, but here is the latest (came out yesterday), a cover for our weekly magazine's 'annual manual'. I did the cover illustration, they did the typography mostly.
The front page of the Arts & Style section of The Washington Post was published with my illustration this Sunday (March 20th, 2016).
The article is a very intriguing story about a stolen-and-30-years-later-found Stradivarius - is worth reading! Although the illustration was not too difficult technically, it was still lots of fun and a nice learning curve for me about what the WaPo expects from their illustrators.
Awww, now this is a fantastic honor! The greek Artcore Magazine listed the 10 best photomanipulations of 2015 and one of my images is included! The list contains the giants of this genre: the Hungarian Sarolta Ban, the fabulous Alexander Jansson, the always enigmatic Marcela Bolivar - just to name a few. Needless to say I am speechless to be in this company.
Art Source Gallery in Boise, ID is having its annual juried show and I am honored to have been chosen as one of the exhibiting artists! If you are in the area don't miss it; it is open till the end of July, 2015.
Update: I won the 'Honorable Mention' Award! There were 150 entries, the shortlist consisted of about 40 artists and then "The Great Player" was awarded - I am thrilled!
I started a new drawing project - I actually realized how much I was missing it: drawing just for fun! I used to sketch every single day; but nowadays it got on the back burner. So I decided I would try to do one quick sketch/draw/paint every day. And because it is always handy I use the computer (mostly PS but sometimes Illustrator and/or ArtRage too). So here is a couple from my first days; hope they are not terrible... The text is Hungarian as I am using the space to reflect on the process.
