American Illustration Profiles Interview: Lehel Kovacs

Lehel Kovacs is an illustrator based in Budapest, Hungary whose work has appeared in a wide range of newspapers and magazines. He creates smart, artful drawings that at times resemble silkscreen prints, with supple lines and rich, flat colors. Kovacs’s work is simple and direct, but he utilizes a very sophisticated approach to visual storytelling. In addition to editorial illustration, Kovacs has illustrated an ongoing series of booklet covers for the Hungarian Liszt Academy. He says that one of the joys of working as an illustrator is that he has “regained that creative freedom I had when I was a child.”

Lehel Kovacs is the subject of my latest American Illustration Profiles interview. See the complete interview here.
