Delavnice/Workshops


Včeraj sem kot mentorica sodelovala na 25. Malem likovnem taboru, ki je tokrat potekal v Mokronogu in ga za dolenjsko regijo organizira JSKD OI Trebnje. Hvala Joži Sinur in Petri Zorn za povabilo in za lep, ustvarjalen dan. Vreme nas ni prav nič motilo, povabilo nas je v naše notranje svetove, iz katerih smo ustvarjali na temo: Mokronožci danes.
Letos sem sodelovala še na nekaterih drugih obiskih: v OŠ Veliki Gaber - hvala Maji Sušin za povabilo - in v sklopu Bralnic pod slamnikom, ki jih je organizirala založba Miš (hvalaaa!). V Knjižnici Tolmin sva dogodek vodili skupaj s pisateljico Tino Arnuš Pupis.

Updates on my webpage

There are a few updates on my web page. I added sketches and other pieces from my archive. I love sketching. I wish I could catch that kind of spontaneity in my work. I'm always learning. If you are interested, you can check it out HERE.

Slikopis

Z založbo Hart pripravljamo zanimivo knjigo, za katero je besedilo napisala Barbara Hanuš, jaz pa sem poskrbela za ilustrativni del. Zanimiv projekt, ki bo bralcem ponujal bralna potepanja in raziskovanja.

Finding Forgiveness, print proofs

Knjiga nastaja, juhu! Počutim se, kot da čakam Miklavža. Avtorskima brezbesednima knjigama 𝙆𝙟𝙚 𝙨𝙞? in 𝘼 𝙨𝙢𝙤 𝙯̌𝙚 𝙩𝙖𝙢?, Miš založba, se bo pridružila še tretja v tej seriji, in sicer z naslovom 𝙁𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙤𝙧𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨! Ta izide pri založbi Chronicle Kids/Chronicle Books z navezo agencije Stimola Literary Studio in agentko Allison Hellegers. Na fotki pa testni printi. OMB, dogaja se!

It's a big deal to see a book coming together to its form. These are print proofs for my third book in the series. 𝙁𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙤𝙧𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨, Chronicle Books - with the help of Stimola Literary Studio and my agent Allison Hellegers - is joining the books 𝙆𝙟𝙚 𝙨𝙞? (𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮 𝙇𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙆𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨) and 𝘼 𝙨𝙢𝙤 𝙯̌𝙚 𝙩𝙖𝙢? (𝘼𝙧𝙚 𝙒𝙚 𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙔𝙚𝙩?), Miš Publishing. I'm super happy and can't wait the next spring, to hold a copy of my book.

Ciciban

Cover illustration for Ciciban, a children’s magazine that holds a special place in my heart. It was my companion during my childhood. As a little girl, I imagined how cool it would be to illustrate its stories, but never thought that it would actually happen. Who knew that my work would be a part of it?

Bologna, book fair/knjižni sejem

Pogled na knjižni sejem v Bologni, klik na prispevek na RTVSLO PODOBA PODOBE.

Hvala, Meta Česnik za povabilo k intervjuju. Bologna je bila kot nekakšen imaginarni, domišljijski svet, ki me je tiste štiri dni preko mnogih aktivnosti, ki sem jih imela vsak dan in novih poznanstev čisto posrkal vase. Prejela sem veliko več kot sem pričakovala. To posebno doživetje bo ostalo v mojem spominu. Čeprav svojega poslanstva ne bi zamenjala, je v njem ogromno dela, ki se ga navzven ne vidi. Včasih me pripelje tudi do roba, ko preizprašujem svoje sposobnosti, a pogosto pelje na neko novo pot, spremembo, ki se kaže tudi v ilustraciji. Veliko mi pomeni podpora založnikov in dobri odnosi, ki jih gojimo. Kaj je lepšega kot to! Vse, ki vas zanima knjiga, ilustracija, delo izjemnih slovenskih ilustratorjev, trud založnikov, vabljeni k ogledu prispevka.

I want to shout out a big thanks to Meta Česnik for the invitation to the interview. I felt the time in Bologna almost like an imaginary, fantasy world that took me all in. I received much more than I expected. I'll keep this experience in my heart. I love being an illustrator, but there's so much behind-the-scenes work. Sometimes, I doubt my creative abilities. But it often leads to new paths in my work and illustrations. The support of the publishers and the good relations we have mean a lot! What could be more beautiful than that? Check out this video featuring exceptional Slovenian illustration PODOBA PODOBE.

Zala's books in Bologna

I'm back to my work routine after attending the Bologna Children's Book Fair. The atmosphere was magical. It was amazing to see many Slovenian books on display. Among them, there were also books I illustrated for Zala Publishing: Ozimnica (Nina Mav Hrovat), Kot hiša velika žaba (Ana Duša), Srečna žaba (Mateja Črv Sužnik), and Zojini zakladi (Cvetka Sokolov). Unfortunately, a few high-quality prints of the illustrations from the book Kot hiša velika žaba were stolen (it looks like somebody really liked them! :D). But then, I was happy to hear every kind word about the books and the illustrations I made.
