Heroines in evening news

We couldn't have a book launch event as all gatherings are banned, but thanks to that we had a TV coverage instead. which was then aired in the main news time on the culture channel and ten thousands people could see it. That is just awesome.


Velvet Effect goes to print today

Although the book market got a heavy blow from the covid situation, two books with my illustrations are actually getting published this autumn. After Heroines, Velvet Effect is a book about the years around the 1989 Velvet revolution. I haven't seen the book design yet, but I'm looking forward to it!



Heroines came out!

Despite the chaotic situation, our book about important Czech women was published recently! I probably won't get my author's copy for a while as the universities are closed due to the pandemic, but I went to a bookshop to look at it and it came out really beautiful.


Lord of the Flies done!

My diploma work came out of print and it looks wonderful! I am happy with the colors and everything - now I will hand it in and hope for the best!


Czech Heroines - big exhibition in Pilsen

After a few exhibitions organised by the Czech Centers around the world,  we finally had an exhibition at home - at the Ladislav Sutnar Gallery in Pilsen. The posters send a strong message and it was great to finally see all of them side by side.

Trip to Bologna Children's Book Fair

Our atelier went to Bologna, Italy for the Bologna Children's Book Fair. I was inspired by the works of many illustrators across the world and left with several beautiful picture books. We also left our small portfolios on the "Illustratorswall" there. Mine was gone by the time we went home in the afternoon so I hope it at least makes someone happy. :)


Hořící kůň illustrations finished

After two months of work with the wonderful writers Frantiska Vrbenska and Lucie Lukacovicova, several illustrations for their book the Burning Horse (Hořící kůň) are finished. They will be used mostly for the promotion of the book, book trailer video and such. The cover is made by Zaneta Kortusova.

Go to illustrations.


Migrations exhibition started

I took part in Migrations Exhibition organized by the Biennal of Illustration Bratislava that starts in Bratislava, Slovakia and then circles around the world. The poster on the right is from South Korea.

"The exhibition seeks to focus attention on the plight of thousands of children and their families who, under oppressing regimes, violence and poverty, are forced to migrate to safer places in the world. There is an installation of 100-200 postcards by illustrators from across the world. The installation alone emphasizes that cultures and ideas migrate across borders, against barriers and bans made and issued by people. The installation is complemented with a set of illustrations by a team from alumni from the University of Worcester, the United Kingdom."
