Polish Illustrators — Crush
I think it’t time to reveal my Polish illustrator crushes.
The most important person has been Agata Nowicka aka Endo. The first website that introduced me to her drawings was her old comics blog, but I’m not sure if she still updates that one. Agata is really sweet and helpful, she now works with New Yorker and most of the Polish magazines. It’s such a pleasure to see her grow and create such an extensive portfolio. Loving her pixels. Yeah, have you noticed ? That digital artwork has a very distinguished look.
Another illustrator, cartoonist and graphic designer whom I admire so much is Ada Buchholc. She works with most of the prominent magazines in Poland and draws her super funny comics Dzienniki Kryzysowe. She definitelly has a love.hate relationship with herself, but deals with it in a cynical hilarious way. Strong line, mature, definite style and bold colors. Like her Facebook page.
Last but not least, Marta Ignerska.
Totally different way of drawing than mine, Ada’s or Agata’s, but captivating and charming. I see this type of childlike style a lot in US, although I would definitely recognize her piece from miles away. And, we share a name.
When I was in Poland I picked up her amazing book Wielkie Marzenia (Big Dreams).
I hope you enjoy meeting these fantastic people. Until!
