Kamila Krol is a queer Polish illustrator and comics maker based in Cardiff. She creates whimsical illustrations and merchandise inspired by dreams and folklore, and often re-imagines elements of her own Slavic heritage.
After being featured as one of the Broken Frontier’s “Six to Watch” (2020), she began self-publishing zines and comics. Her debut comic, “Rusalka – part 1”, was later awarded by the Polish Comics Association in the Best Debut category (2021).
Her first graphic novel, “Rusalka – Whispers of the Forest”, will be published in November 2023 by Strangers Publishing. She also contributes short comics to anthologies (“In Their Own Voice”, “Let Her Be Evil”).
Kamila takes part in various creative events in the UK, both by exhibiting her work and via art talks (University of South Wales, LDComics, PrideCAF).
When she’s not drawing, she can be found treasure hunting in bookshops and exploring Cardiff’s green spaces.
