I made this drawing for Active (#3 2008). It illustrates a text about the importance of being fit and active.
And this is the magazine spread.
My drawing published in the latest issue of Active (#3 2008). The text is about the difficulty of returning to work when your holiday is over. Sigh...

One of my most beloved designs – a cover for Baaba's Poope Musique album. I made everything here including layout, typography and illustrations. The CD was published by Lado ABC in 2006 and received loads of excellent reviews in the music press. The design looks a bit retro and naïve and that's precisely what it's supposed to look like as it was 100% inspired by Baaba's music. I guess this is the quintessence of my taste and style at the time of making.
Another cover I made for a Dean Koontz novel. This time it's The Face. The Polish title is Twarz and it was published by Prószyński in 2004. I based the design on a picture I shot myself – that's my eye and my hands. And no, I won't tell you how I managed to put my head into the box and shoot the picture at the same time.

Leenia is the title of a customer magazine I design for jeans brand Lee. It's distributed for free in shops, cafés and bars. Every issue has a new layout and theme. Issue #5 2008 was mostly about film and animated film. For this issue I decided to make a really simple layout with sparse use of colour. The girls on the cover are members of a Polish indie band called Betty Be. The big title was handmade - a paper cutout.
This is the gadget spread. The silhouette of Norman Bates' mom is actually a shower curtain.
On this spread we present young designers who have to make something new and inventive out of Lee clothes. In this case they made furniture.
Plazmatikon is a Polish band playing electro nu-jazz (whatever that is!) They only use vintage instruments an their sound is a bit retro. I wanted the photos to look like old ORWO colour negatives.
This is the last spread of the fashion shoot with Betty Be. It was inspired by Tarantino's Death Proof.
A fictive interview with comic character Jerry The Hedgehog about him starring in an animated feature film.
Another fashion shoot with human cameras.
Academy awarded Peter And The Wolf - another animated feature production.

The name of this typeface is Mohair Dream. I found it on an old box from the 1950's containing welding glasses. I wanted to use it on the cover of a comic book of mine called Moherowe sny (Polish for Mohair dreams). I love this typeface as it's so retro and have used it for many of my designs.
