I've been through the desert on a horse with no name

Ok, this is official now. My book about the Red Horse was published recently. Check out the info!

Yoga is good for physical and mental health

A bunch of uploads has happened here, here, and here. Also meet my new set of matryoshka dolls based on yoga asanas.

Meanwhile it's summer! Off we go!

In the first days of the spring time

The picture is random. I just like the visual similarity of three heads and the posture of a granny. Portfolio update — this's the reason.

It's a fresh spring, so let's sing

I played it quiet, left you deep in conversation

The importance of development is hard to overestimate. My Neighborhood project continues and sort of forces me to apply those characters elsewhere and use different techniques. Curiosity is a good thing! Due to it there're some updates on my personal projects page. Neighborhood party goes on!

Meanwhile I ran another interactive thing recently and this time it's a narrative. Let's test my neighbors' imagination once more.

Hey, wow! Just look at that! Even the size fits! My dolls found their origins.

Meet Sidney Littler! Needless to say it was the nicest commission. Thank you Chris!
Sadly I don't know Sidney in person. Think we might be good friends.

The summer is over and needs to be summarized. Dacha has happened somewhere in the middle of it.

Theres nowhere we can go with nothing underneath

A bit too quiet here for a moment, but I'll try to fix it. Really enjoying Saturday drawing sessions. Surprise! Never thought I'd come back to that as it seemed like a nightmare during my uni days. Needless to say the old rules were wrong: drawing the same posture several hours doesn't help much and leads to editor's fatigue, that's why it was so painful. Things are much better now!

Updated my portfolio page. Happy to leave this land of winter for a while. Off to Bologna Fair. Say "Hi!" if you'll spot me around there. Would be nice to meet. For those who are staying there're some links.

Right there that's the postman sleeping in the sand

There's no such word as "serendipity" in Russian. The dictionary offers intuition instead, but it's not exactly the same. I like the fact many discoveries which change the world where made hand by hand with serendipity. You can't actually go and say: "Ok, I'm going to invent penicillin, or post-it notes or find the white noise, etc." All you can do is work and be attentive to details and be able to observe and detect what's going on. It happens while you're busy with something else.

P1080270-1

So when I got an invitation to take part in this project I was also busy with other projects and it was sort of unexpected discovery in my mail box. Together with Lina Khesina, Galya Panchenko, Zhenya Barinova, Olesya Shchukina and others we made a set of 18 postcards about serendipity. Now I've got them printed! The paperstock is nice and I like the delicate embossing on the cover. It was published by Print-o-holic in St.Petersburg and I'm grateful for what they've done.

P1080272-1

Back to work now. As fortunate discoveries tend to happen while we're looking for something else.
