It's rainy here. A bit of update in my portfolio. Working on my book these days. And waiting one treasure from Amazon. Ginger tea saves the world!

Does Anne Herbauts have a blog? Please!

My working table is finally cleaned up. I can see its surface. Wow!

It's chilly here, +10C. Autumn, you're welcome! I feel "wormer" at the mere thought of Sanrda's wrist worms.

Serge aka Lonely Elk upgraded my site yesterday. And the inner admin system's just great! Moreover, it works a little bit faster now. Thanks!

The passport cover sewn by Maxim Sharov. And the laser burnout drawing on it is from Masha. A must have in Moscow. For those who ain't local, it'll be hard to explain. A subtle humor is everybody needs a registration in Moscow and if you don't have one, any policeman can stop you and fine you and put your money into his pocket without any receipt. Especially if you're a suspicious-looking person.


And the pendant made by Irina Kolesnik.

Catell Ronca's book about people in south London.

Lifters, runners and bears



Just have to share a little bit more from that wonderful book about Olympic games in Mexico and Grenoble. The faces of heavyweight lifters are stunning.

Also I'd like to say thank you to Denitsa. She reminded me about this epoch-making event of my childhood - flying bear Misha. Possibly it can explain my enormous love of bears.

Spent my weekend at home. It's so important sometimes to do nothing at all. Had a good time reading about Sandra Juto's Monday.

Olympic weekend



Found this book about Olympic games in Mexico and Grenoble in 68. Made a dozen of sketches of athletes and still feel dissatisfied.

Today I restored my page with masks of Bear and Birdie. Those PDF-versions of them are available for downloading here.

Imaginary beings




I was so blown away by making a portrait gallery of my imaginary beings yesterday. When someone told me about the war, I thought it was a joke - sounded absolutely surreal. Still can't believe.

Birdie and its silhouette

The other day I found bound volumes of Tram. This magazine was quite popular in the early nineties in the Soviet Union. It was published for two years and then disappeared at the same time with the USSR breakdown. I never read it, but was familiar by hearsay. So I grabbed my treasure and spent all Sunday reading it.

Dreiraumwohnung exhibition #001





The prehistory is we don't have much private galleries in Moscow. I mean those tiny little cozy places where you can look at ten or twelve pictures of the same artist, have a chat with friends, drink wine and happily go home. Two of my favorite Russian illustrators Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva and Darya Rychkova made such thing. They collaborate on one chamber exhibition and hang out their works in one flat.

Right here I felt bored about what I wrote and just had to stop not to harm that sparkling magic drawing world. Feel pleased. Sh!
