“A picture for yet another Power Lunches exhibition. Childhood heroes was the theme. Me as a communist child, a western consumer was the hero. How sad.” – Martina Paukova
There’s any number of illustrators who can draw, who can use pretty colours and make stuff look really nice. Then there’s the much smaller club of illustrators with something to say; those with character and personality to match their illustrative talents.
Martina Paukova falls into the latter category and then some. Because even if you’re not sure of what she’s saying you want to know. That my pedigree chums is called engagement, which is hopefully why we’re in this world of graphic ‘communication’ in the first place.
