Available for commissions, you can get in touch with me at mateja@matejakovac.com

The most of my illustrations are available as art prints on my Etsy shop

I usually take all those emotions and characters and built them into the set design and the objects around, which are often the only content in my illustrations, like the only silent witnesses to my imaginary moment and now they are talking about it.
