Illustrator Olaf Hajek’s work is amazing! We caught up with him recently and asked him about his artistic background: ‘I was already drawing and painting when I was young. At school, I visited an oil painting class where we were taught to paint with our fingers. This helped a lot to develop an artistic sense and a great feeling for colour, which I think is really important for my work. After school, I studied graphic design, and although illustration was not offered as a main point of the studies, I tried to draw as much as possible. After my diploma in Germany, I moved to Amsterdam, where I was painting, and copied my work and sent it to magazines. That’s how the whole thing started’.
