Oksana a storyteller with artistic drawing skills.
Tell me about yourself?
I like to tell stories using pictures.
I wrote and draw 4 picture books about Tukoni. They were published around the world in different countries from Greece to Korea. In 2019 “Tukoni – the forest habitant” was featured in the “White Ravens” best books catalog during the Frankfurt Bookfair. This year I and my team made a demo version of the game based on Tukoni stories.
Tell me about your work experience?
For some time I developed my brand of hand-crafted glass jewelry and interior objects. Also, I worked with animation. And then came into book illustration.
How did you develop a fondness for artwork?
I’m drawing from childhood.
Did you study artwork? If yes then from where?
I studied at the Lviv National Academy of Arts. My profile was Art glass.
From where did you learn this?
All about the digital illustration, I studied by myself. First with just experimenting and long after with internet exploring.
A lot of experimenting with “hand” techniques such as pencil drawing, watercolor, and oils gives me a vision of my style in digital. And a lot of nature observation.
Why did you choose graphic design as a profession?
Here I found the best way of telling what I’d like to tell. And it’s fun) Such a great palette of possibilities, just needs never stop learning!
Who are your biggest influences?
Nature, forest, birds.
How do you become a successful artist?
I think success is a very relative concept. This is a really strange thing.
What makes you a good graphic designer and different from others?
Some day the Tukoni came to me and my world became better:) This is very exciting to try to build your universe I guess. I never think about my stories from such an angle, after someone told: “Oh, you are making Tukoni universe “.
