About

Alena KubíkováAlena Kubíková (*1988)
Freelance illustrator and graphic designer, living and working in Prague, Czech Republic. She’s been doing art since she was little, starting with scribbles on the wall of her children’s room. In 2007, during her studies of Informatics, she discovered digital painting, which later became her main technique. She likes to come up with ideas and bring them to life, whether they’re interesting characters/creatures or something else. She has a soft spot for dark things and mischievous creatures. Beside her own art and projects (like Czech illustration project – Monthly creation on a given topic) she focuses mainly on illustration (both book and gaming) and book covers. Other interests: Books, chess. And a lot of coffee!
