The high-school friendship born from the fact that both of them lived far from home, in the residence halls of Budapest Secondary School of Fine Arts, blossomed into their first common project right in the very first year, when they created illustrations for Galaktika, one of Hungary's most popular science and science fiction magazines. Both were influenced by the other's talent, style and visions. They accepted each other's critical remarks and observations, and tried to make use of each other's strengths and advantages. As time went by, co-illustrating matured into a steady work affiliation. Their works are based on analogue freehand drawings, though they try to use technological possibilities to their best advantage.

Their work is the synthesis of two individual visions.
