I am Martina Peškar-Rusznák an illustrator and traditional fine artist from Budapest, Hungary, based in Prague, Czech Republic. My professional background is in architecture engineering but during my maternity leave, my main focus of mine became children’s book illustration.
At the beginning of the adventurous journey of raising my children I came to the realization that one
should never underestimate children’s sense of humor. I believe this is one of the most important
qualities we can give them on the path to facing the challenges of the world of their own. I believe books
are one of the best means to refine and deepen their inherently engraved sense of humor. For the
sake to fulfill this principle expectation and also for my own enjoyment, I love creating sympathetic
characters in funny situations that make kids, as well as grown-ups, smile.
