Eliška Podzimková is a Czech animator, illustrator, photographer and an artist, now living in Prague.
In 2014 she graduated from the Film Academy of Miroslav Ondříček in Písek. She received recognition in the USA, partially thanks to her instagram profile @AnimateNY (now @eliskap). She fulfilled her dream to live and create in her favorite city – New York City.
Instagram quite literally changed her life and brought cooperation, of which the small town girl didn’t even dream. She has worked on Jamie Oliver’s chef show’s opening credits, the front page of the New York Metro magazine, illustrated photos for the American Vogue or various articles in worldwide media.
She is now back in the Czech Republic working on interesting projects with various Czech artists. She is now preparing an animated web series Baldies for child cancer patients because, being a former cancer patient herself, she knows how important an optimistic approach to treatment is and this animated series could help.
Her newest project is a Little Prince edition, which Eliška illustrated and photographed in Iceland and a related interactive exhibition, which will be touring the Czech Republic in 2020.
