"Botka" means a little shoe in Czech. Pavel Botka is graphic designer and illustrator. Born 1971, studied at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen and Blocherer Schule für Grafik und Design in Munich. Since 1999 he works as freelance designer and creative artist. He lives and works in Pilsen, Czech republic.

Pavel Botka wants graphic design to be clear, brief and free from all inefficiency. He doesn`t like purposeless effects. He doesn`t like fashion-styles and to-be-in. He likes drawing. And he likes creations of old, not computer-involved graphic masters, whose works have a sympathetic level of "imperfection" – a quality, in which Botka recognizes a value for himself. Perfection is often dry and boring – and Botka wants to be amusing.
