Panka Deák

I was born in Budapest in 1984. As a child, I was persistently drawing with black ink pen, it was clear to me to study a visual art. At the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, I studied Graphic Design, and now I work as a freelancer. I have been interested in illustration since 2007. I studied illustration as a main subject in Darmstadt in 2008 and this period inspired me in my diploma project which was illustrations for Plato’s The Allegory of the Cave. This is a series of five exercise books, they show the text with five different visual languages. My portfolio ranges from logo-design through book-design to fairy tale illustration.

Julianna Kasza

I realized, that a picture can take effect either to the emotions, make an athmosphere, and make the viewer to get involved into it, e.g. the fluffy animals, which looks touchable, which causes feelings in the viewer, trying to make him either sad, happy, or whatever: in this case our eyes make them (feel). On the other hand, the illustration can also take effect to the understanding, to the mind - in this case, it uses mathematical instruments. These are in fact equations, but not totally calculable, because they stay as pictures. I do not consider the vector-based graphic as less than the old technics. Every visual phrasing can work, we only should know what we are about to say. So the main task is to discover life, and tell it to the others.

Iván Krebsz

Earlier I painted abstract pictures, primarily with oil paint. Later I wrote a couple of tales which I then illustrated myself. I was truly attracted to the playfulness and freedom of the genre. Since then I`ve been making illustrations besides my painting work whenever I`m given the chance. Currently I`m working on a series of tales, the protagonists of which are given life in the form of statuettes, with the help of recycled materials.

Kata Pap

Born in 1976, Hungary. My career as an artist started the day I drew my first line with a crayon. In nursery school my friends kept ordering drawings of popular cartoon figures from me. My versions didn’t look anything like the originals but me and my customers were happy about them anyway. Later on I attended Eszterhazy Karoly Teacher Training College where I took a degree as an art and visual communication teacher. Afterwards I started to work as a graphic designer in an advertisement agency. I also had the opportunity to illustrate or take part in the illustration of the following children’s books: PUBLISHED BOOKS Péter Nyulász: Mesélő babakezek - Gyere játszani |Edited by Tesslof Babilon, Hungary 2011| Péter Nyulász: Mesélő babakezek-Menjünk sétálni |Edited by Tesslof Babilon, Hungary 2011| Ifj.
