Hi, I’m an illustrator, writer, author of children’s books, an cartoon & comic designer. My name is Vojtěch Jurík, but you probably know me under my psudonym, Vhrsti.

Some of my succeses:

  • Creating the animated serial „Bílá paní na hlídání“ (White Lady Babysitter), produced by Czech Television (2013)
  • Dozens of books, icluding textbooks and workbooks
  • Authorial books and comics
  • Special programme for children with The Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra, educational walks, The Monster Museum, and other interesting projects
  • Participation in prestigious anthologies and exhibitions all over the world
    15 years‘ experience, satisfied readers and clients

Some of my awards:

  • Newspaper Award for the best Czech and Slovak cartoons (2016)
  • Bohumil Polan Award for the best book of West Bohemian author (2015)
  • BESA – The Best European Schoolbook Awards – Silver medal (2013)
  • Czech Teachres‘ Award for contribution to children’s reading (2007)
  • Certificate of Excellence from The National Press Club of Canada (2006)
  • Special Award from The Jury at The International Comic Festival in Belgrade (2003)

Vhrsti has published four beatiful books through our publishing house. I appreciate his professionalism, fair attitude, flexibility, and – above all – human approach: He doesn’t work with the typical systém of „order/realisation/money“. He rall cares about the work, he has an emotional relationship to all of his creations. It’s only fair. I warmly recommend him.
