Brief Summary
My name is Kotryna Zukauskaite, I am an illustrator originally from Lithuania, mostly educated in UK, and now based in Moscow for a while.I'm inspired by politics, social issues, culture, human-brain-power, statistics and other data, fairy-tales, folk tradition, ornaments, literature and living in different countries.

I'm now working on a ABC book for pre-school aged children (illustrated Lithuanian alphabeth; self-initiated; book will be published in April by Alma Littera publish.), a creativity-development book for toddlers (assigned by Šviesa publish.), flash game characters and backgrounds, and a self-initiated illustrated products series (hits shelves in early May)
