Hello! My name is Elwira Pawlikowska. I'm trained as an architect (Warsaw Faculty of Architecture) and work as an illustrator and concept designer.
My working experience includes book and game illustrations, environment concepts and product graphic designs (along with cooperation on many Kickstarter campaigns).
I work with traditional media (pencils, ink and watercolors) and digital techniques (Adobe PS, After Effect, Premiere).
