Tomski & Polanski, even though they are soloists, work together. The luxurious creations of the duo, formed by one man and a woman, have some zest! One pair of hands would not be enough.

They share a playful spirit, sense of creativity and ability to dare to go beyond the usual borders.

We wish to introduce to you Ilona Polanski and Lukáš Tomek. The luxurious designer duo, Tomski & Polanski, shows that they are both excellent illustrators, whose skills include excellent drawing work, whether manual or digital, painting and animation for the press as well as the media. They talks by means of a torrent of colours and lively designs. Their characters are ridiculously smart, born out of love and passion of drawing. Ilona and Lukáš love freestyle in creation as well as life. Their common home is the Czech Republic, they are crazy for baseball caps and love vegetables.

“Illustration is our way of expressing an opinion and way of looking at you. By the way, we are not a couple, we are a duo." Tomski & Polanski

What did they let us know about themselves?

When did that moment come, the decision that you will create together? Or, what was behind it?

Everything came round spontaneously. We have increasingly often joined forces for larger contracts and complicated assignments at the time of our studies. Finally there was no doubt about the fact that two people get ahead with things better than one.

Where are the current trends going in terms of animation?

The current scene of illustration is experiencing a kind of Renaissance. In books, magazines and newspapers they can be seen more and more often. This goes together with digital platforms that are able to get the pictures moving. Web pages and social networks are filled more by gif and short animations. In foreign online magazines and newspapers animation is used extensively; this trend will surely come here, too. Illustrators and animators will cooperate more.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

It comes spontaneously. What we see or go through in life is constantly being processed and filtered. We are just tools.

How would you describe your creation in 3 words?

Playful, colourful, infinite.

What other luxury projects or new works do you have planned for the near future, which you can reveal to us?

Currently we are completing work on a project in Pec pod Sněžkou. The sculptor and artist Matěj Hájek and architect Tereza Kuèerová created here a play area called Pecka; we have created its visual identity. Then we will take a rest for a bit before to draw energy for autumn illustration of books, which will be published before Christmas. And we look forward to the luxury festival Lustr (Chandelier), we will make time for this event and create a small exhibition.

What else could you let us know?

That's a hard question. Perhaps that in general we love our profession, in the heat of the creative activities we then forget to frequently visit our supportive parents.
