Hello! My name is Mateja Lukežič based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I am a Freelance Illustrator. I work in Digital media.
I make happy and colourful illustrations for products, magazines and children's books. If you are interested in my work or in licensing my designs, I would love to hear from you. E-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org or use a contact form.
I was working for seven years as a graphic designer in a big company. I felt that something was missing, I wanted to do more and be creative with no limits. I decided to leave my job, which was not an easy decision and go to college. I studied at Famul Stuart School of Applied Arts and obtained a degree in Scenography. I continued my education at the School of Arts at the University of Nova Gorica. At the School of Arts, I graduated with my second degree in 3D Animation. I learned a lot about digital media like photography, 2D and 3D animation, stop animation, movie. It was a huge accomplishment for me to be able to work on real projects while I continued my studies. All these experiences have made me the illustrator I am today.
I was invited to make illustrations for puppets at the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre, I found my passion for illustration again. Now I am living the dream of working as an illustrator, my passion.
