Story about Etui

Hi
My name is Mateja Kovač and I live in a little town called Samobor that is placed near the capital city of Croatia, Zagreb. I have been practicing different branches of art, well it seems like forever now, but officially I graduated the Art academy in the year 2006. Since then my art has taken me from restoration, classical painting, interior design and finally today, to the place i can call my home…illustration.
Etui is a collection of romantic and feminine art interpretations that are inspired with everything that fulfils the everyday life and occupies the imagination of almost every women; all the little daily rituals, cooking and tasty food, making yourself pretty, fashion, travels, nature…
My work is done exclusively digital in Photoshop. With years of experience I have developed a skill in that program to mimic realistically the classical painting techniques. I take that to be the greatest advantage to me as an illustrator
The digital media is a very rewarding process because it gives you much more control over your work. It is simple to correct and it has the possibility of stylizations which is impossible to get in the traditional media. On the other hand it gives me the possibility of quick experiments where I feel much more relaxed if I go wrong because the material has no limits.
Art print i print generally is one way to "materialize" the original eg the digital record of my illustrations. From the idea, the first sketches thru all the development of all elements, drawing to finishing details, it takes me about 2-3 days of hard work.
As an illustrator the first thing that draws me is the visual part, but the thing that makes me want to illustrate it, is the emotions it provokes in me.
I was always fascinated with design, because for me design was always like a complicated mathematical formula that cannot be solved only by knowledge but also needs a lot of love and devotion to make it work.
About my illustrations I can only say that I always aim to make them in a way that they give a relaxed and unburdened atmosphere to their environment. I always try to capture that „ happy thought“moment that makes every day worth living.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as I do making them, and hopefully you will also find your „happy thought“ in them.
