Today we are happy and honored to introduce you to Eliska from Czech Republic.
“Hello or Ahoj how we say in the Czech Republic where I am from. I am 23 years old animator from little town near Prague, but I currently live between NYC and Prague. What do I do? Well, I am trying to live post graduate life in a way I like and do what I love. So I draw, I take pictures, animate, travel, cuddle my dog, snuggle with my girlfriend, discover new places and revisit the old ones. I am open to any cool projects what people offer me to work on and I am always open to travel anywhere.”
