Coloured sketchbook - 2018
I miss you - 2016
I found a deck of dog themed cards with different depictions of dogs. I cut out the dogs from the cards and placed the residual ‘background’ on a found/family photo. The image of the dog was placed on the other side of the book with a blank background. Either there is a dog on each page or the absence of it, but you can feel that something is missing. I used the image of the dog as the symbol of unconditional love and loyalty.
One dog - 2014
Once one dog has stolen the bone.
I feel like a dog because of this (I feel like nothing on earth because of this)
A dog's broken bone will soon be healed (The wound inflicted will soon be healed)
There was a dog-market in Buda only once (This favourable opportunity was a one-time occasion only)
A late repetance is a dog's idea (After death the doctor)
The dog is buried here (Here lies the rub)
The tree of the dog! (Gosh!)
The dog does not eat the winter
Out of a dog there will be no lard (A leopard cannot change his spots)
Money talks, although the dog may bark
There is not only one pied dog in the world
The hoar-frost is still to come for the dog (Be sure your sins will find you out!)
It is like the dinner of the dog
The tail wags the dog (Those give orders who are expected to obey)
A dog that barks does not bite
He ties the dog to the post (He sticks to his position/plan/idea)
The bite of a dog is healed by the hair of it
He barks like the dog to the moon
A liar is caught sooner than a lame dog
Two dogs can hardly agree on one bone
Lord of the dogs! (Oh my gosh!)
A living dog is better than a dead lion
Dog and cat friendship
Serenity would be nice among dogs
He regrets, just like the dog who yeaned seven puppies
The dog shits on the hill too
Dog's lord is pale
He is the kid of our dog also
As if they drawn him out from the dogs' mouth
A scalded dog fears even the rain
Grumbles like the dog with fleas
He is in the dog's cramp (He is in a tight squeeze)
It fell to the thirtieth of dogs (Although it is valuable nobody cares for it any more)
The dog doesn't bark to him either
He is like the banished (jerked off) dog
He doesn't have a dog, neither a cat
As if they are talking to dogs (Be cat!)
Dog and its liver
Barking of dogs cannot be heard in heaven (Who cares about what he says)
Who is a dog until noon, is a dog in the afternoon too
In this sketchbook I juxtaposed proverbs/idioms about dogs with dog-stickers supplemented with pencil drawings.

In this tiny book I wrote sentences taken from different communication channels, such as: chat-, messenger-, and real conversations, e-mails, regular mails and also excerpts from my dream-diary. These messages are on one side of the book, and on the other side there are minimal visual informations regarding to the texts, creating a third, more complex meaning.
Can we understand each other?/Did we touch each other? - 2014
'exercise book for people in love'
Originally this booklet was a school exercise book and was the property of my father. Its title, the two phrases: 'Can we understand each other?' and 'Did we touch each other?' is a word-game. These two different meanings in Hungarian is expressed by the very same sentence. I used cards from the traditional Hungarian playing card deck, different photos from newspapers, a biology book, and texts from. Excerpts chosen from random newspapers, supplemented with Hungarian folk song fragments with the theme of love. Most of the Hungarian folklore poetry is about love and articulate sadness in a very complex way.
The Death has hatched - 2013
For almost five years I have been volunteering in a summer camp for gypsy children in Hungary. After a long day with the kids it was a great pleasure to do some other things just to release from the exhaustion. I found a colouring book called ’Springtime’ (Kikelet) and changed the name to ’The Death has hatched’ (Kikelt a halál) as a word-play. I changed some words to ’HALÁL’ in it as well, which means death in Hungarian and also did other visual additions connected to passing away. With the playful drawings and with the grim completions I wanted to creat a dark-humour, funny picture book.
