Hello, my name is Karolina Jonc (Yontz, not Jones) Buczek (Boo-check) and I am an illustrator, who left her heart in Poland and sold her soul to the London City.
Starting off with a background in fine art during my teenage years, through the education (a graduate of BA Illustration Camberwell College of Arts) and continuous self-development I managed to become an illustrator of many styles, mixing techniques and media (from traditional to digital and beyond) and an experience in graphic design too.
I find inspirations in objects, situations and trends usually considered as tacky, cheesy, lacking good taste, popular and bizarre. I like to distil the greyness of everyday reality into colourful essence, giving it the importance I believe it deserves.
I am a massive fan of Eurovision Song Contest, I have a particular interest in the drag queen cultural niche and the history of USSR, with the book dedicated to the Soviet Space Dogs being my all time favourite piece of literature.
I am proudly left-handed.
