Adrijana Cernic is a digital artist and professional book cover designer with 8 years of experience in work with Photoshop, from Croatia, Europe.
She grew up surrounded by books and comics, reading one after another, sometimes several at the same time, so came naturally to her to combine her love for them with her passion for digital art.
Adrijana is a completely self-taught artist, perfectionist with a vivid imagination. Driven with a passion for art and fascinated with the possibilities of the digital world she finished school for Graphic Design, as a graphic publishing specialist, left her career in economics to start her own business as a professional and independent book cover designer and digital artist, under her brand name Adriatica Creation.
Visual effects in her art attracted the attention of professional photographers, as well as the cosplay and entertainment industry, In 2018. she was collaborating with Connected Television Show as VFX and graphic editor. In 2019. she began her collaboration with Cosplay Arabia and eventually, she became a part of their team (exclusively for the Middle East), as their VFX specialist. Her work was featured in Cosplay Arabia Magazine and MEFCC (Meddle East Film & Comic Con in Dubai). On CAMEC 2020 (Cosplay Arabia Middle East Challenge) held in Dubai, she was a judge for the Best VFX artist category.
Influenced by comic books, movies, and video games, Adrijana creates unique, original, artistic, and cinematic book covers enriched with colors, shadows, and lights. Her covers adorn books by many bestselling authors worldwide. She is extremely proud of covers created for the Croatian edition of Stephen and Owen King’s “Sleeping Beauties”, and Leigh Bardugo‘s “Six of Crows” & “Crooked Kingdom”.
Her favorites are fantasy, mystery, adventure, sci-fi, and supernatural covers. Fantasy worlds filed with magic lights, lovely creatures, adventurous heroes, and brave warriors.
She likes to tell stories with her art hoping that some writers will bring them to life and keep them alive for a long, long time...
