My Name is Marina Halak and I’m a children’s books illustrator and author from Ukraine. Currently I’m living in Germany. If you ask me why am I a children’s books illustrator, I would answer “because I’m still a child”.
I think we have a new generation of children’s literature now, it’s no more about simple things and colourful rainbows, now it’s about soul, being a personality and staying natural. There is nothing about being perfect. That’s why I’m using different materials to make my stories real: not only traditional techniques like aquarelle, pencils and acrylic colours, also mixed media and digital painting. It’s important for me to give to children so much as I can. To give more answers, because the world of kids is the world of questions.
