Bronze Portfolio

Today I was awarded Bronze at the annual Chimera press design contest. This years party – the 7th edition – was rather poor in form (economic crisis?) but rich when it comes to quality of design. My prize was in the Portfolio Section and this is my 3rd Chimera award!

About A Girl

A short comic about a girl. I specially made it for an exhibition at Karowa gallery in Warsaw held in 2003. The original was hand inked in A1 format (84.1×118.9cm). The reformated version of the comic was published this month in the 6th issue of the comic zine Ziniol.

Listen, Baby

I made this illo for Przekrój last summer. The text was later dropped so it went unpublished. Might look good on a t-shirt or poster though...

Introducing Myra Europa

This is a tribute to my brother Patrick and his wife Emma. On the 9th of September they became proud parents of Myra Europa – probably the cutest baby girl on Earth.

My First Horror

This is the first cover in a series that I made for publisher Prószyński and it's for a Dean Koontz book called Watchers (Opiekunowie in Polish). I remember I read this book as a kid so it was kind of cool to make. There's a funny anecdote about this cover. I was asked by the publisher to make a few test covers for horror books so I made this collage out of two pictures I had previously made. And they loved it! Nobody seemed to care that it didn't really fit to the plot.

The guy in the picture is a friend of mine, designer and excellent comic illustrator Benek Szneider, co-owner of Bitterlix studio.
