Matej Ilcik is a Slovakian illustrator, specialising mainly in illustration for children and young adults. He loves drawing whimsical characters placed in funny scenes. In his work, he’s focused on serious and mature topics, but tries to depict them with humour – often in darker shades. He has illustrated 5 books so far, and he’s currently working on the sixth one. Touched by the horrors of war taking place in Ukraine, he started a series of illustrations to shift the attention of people all over the world to the current events in the country.
