As yesterday we celebrated R’s birthday, today we’re sharing the card our son drew (with a tiny little bit of help) for that celebration. It’s a rat. And it has a balloon. Have a happy week!



May you have a wonderful new year full of joy and peace,
accomplishments and rest, quiet time with family and exuberant time with friends
(or the other way round). And may you always draw joy from what you love
and satisfaction from what you do.


May you have a wonderful time during the holiday season,
may you spend it in warmth and joy with the people you love
and may you find a moment to do something silly and fun.

This year again we managed to find time for a hand-made Christmas card which doubles as a Christmas tree decoration. The making-of process pictured below:



This year the Graphics Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk is celebrating its tenth anniversary with, among other things, an exhibition of works by teachers and graduates. As this is a place we both hail from, our work was also exhibited and yesterday we attended the opening (hence the delay, sorry!). The exhibition was curated by the estimable Anita Wasik and designed by the talented Dorota Terlecka.

We chose to show our Shakespeare Project, which has not had as much exposition as some of our other projects but remains one of the things we’re most proud of, so we are happy to see it out there.

That’s our entire corner. Each artist got to design the large banner and whatever they wanted in front of it (within budget constrictions, of course). We showed a selection of Shakespeares with the identity of the project.



Hanging those lines was soooo swear-inducing, I tell you. But hey, I did it.


Of course, our stuff is a great reason to see the exhibition, should you be in the area, but there are other designers, and personal friends, showing their projects, too. Here are some random impressions but there are tons more.

For our son’s second birthday this year we have again made him a custom picture book. This time we illustrated a story that we’ve been telling him for a while now before sleep. He usually gets bored quickly of those stories and demands that we come up with new ones but the story of a fox that tries to copy the behavior of other animals held his interest longer so we chose this one as a birthday gift.


The fox meets a pig.


The bear and bees.


Stuff like this is always a welcome break from whatever else we’re working on and we only hope J will enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed making it.
