Last November there was an exhibition of Hungarian illustrators in Hungarian Cultural Centre, London. Here are some photos from the opening and a Kodály-based music session which was organized in the same hall.
'Cricket on the Moon and other stories' is the title of my upcoming exhibition at József Attila Művelődési Ház, Göd (Hungary). There will be a lot of selected illustrations from the last six years. Opening this Friday 6 PM.
Yesterday the Beautiful Hungarian Book Prizes were handed over to the winners. Our book 'Heart Outgrown' written by Imola Julianna Szabó won the Certificate of Merit by the jury in the category of youth and adults' literature. The jury chose from the published books of last year in eight categories. The award ceremony was at the Petofi Literary Museum, in Budapest.
This lovely book written by Judit Magos won the 'Golden Book 2016' prize in category 'educational literature' based on readers' votes. The story is about early life of Demény (the Hungarian Short-haired Pointing Dog celebrity) and his wandering on the streets before he has been rescued.
Our new book has released. It's a methodological guide for using paper-theater. Krisztina Simon and I will participate in the Festive Book Week Budapest on Sunday for a dedication if you are interested in it.
ILLUSTRATI Magazine and a lot of beautiful books by logos are avalaible at the stand A16 of logosedizioni in Bologna Children's Bookfair – during the fair (from the 4th of April to the 7th). They and their stand are so nice as well! :)
My illustration was selected for ILLUSTRATI Magazine (second time!) this March issue dedicated to 'seven dwarfs' (in Italian: sette nani). You can download the magazine here: http://illustrati.logosedizioni.it/download/
Printed version is coming soon and will be available at Bologna Children's Book Fair and the bigger Italian book shops. I'm so happy! :)
I am working on a new paper theater tale about transformations of a waterdrop. Just a little sneak peek.
Yesterday I received the 'Dragonfly' Magazine which contains two double pages with my illustrations.
Last year I decided to realize some objects from my earlier ideas. For example: diaries or stationery... and my oldest most wanted project: A BOARD GAME! Well, as I made some diaries and agendas and finally had a chance to create a board game design in 2015 (you can see it at 'works' section) then I created this paperdoll dressing game. Although the how-to part of the process wasn't simply at all it was so much fun to make it!
