Cover illustration for "Ksiezniczka" (The Princess) by A. Pilipiuk
This is one of my favourite pictures of all time.
She works in a variety of media having started out making pencil sketches of people at the age of nine. She is fascinated by human faces, expressions and anatomy and that fascination comes across in her work.
"Man in India" by Katarzyna Oleska
As well as her sketches and digital work Katarzyna also works in oils and acrylics. Her caricatures are remarkable and if you visit her website or blog you can see a short video on making caricatures or you can buy a full length video from www.gum.co/caricature. She also has other tutorial videos available.
Among her recent works are 14 book cover illustrations for the Piper Verlag series of Terry Pratchett's Discworld, published in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Great art and Terry Pratchett - what more could I want?
Cover illustration for "The Science of Discworld 2"
Privately she describes herself as a very optimistic person with a good sense of humour. I am most grateful to Katarzyna for permission to reproduce the three illustrations in this post.
