Met Henning Wagenbreth on the opening of Kommissia festival. Need to buy one of his books today. The picture he was drawing was inspired by Moscow subway. They have a button you need to push in case if you want tell something to the engine driver.

All the girls in every girlie magazine


Some time ago guys from The Gutenberg's Quarterly offered me to participate. It's a black and white magazine focused on illustration and illustrators, showing their ways of life, studios, workspaces, pets, meals, and, of course, their work.

They've decided to feature my matreshka dolls. The fun thing is it's the colorful set put in black and white magazine! I'm proud to be at the same issue with Mar Hernandez aka Malota. They've sent me a copy of the magazine. So good to hold it!

I lit a match then let it catch to light up the room


Took part in The Last Match project. Every artist designs one piece in the size of a matchbox which will be hung on a match. The papers are collected in matchboxes. So 25 artworks fit one matchbox. Clever! And the delivery should be quite cheap as well! Now the exhibition contains 155 artist from 38 countries. My contribution will be included starting from the next exhibition in Haarlem, Netherlands and in autumn travel further to Georgia.

I have my freedom but I don't have much time


Updated my sketchbook page a bit. Also there're some new works in my portfolio. Needless to say I'm still tired of last week's projects, but today I was trying some new things in my sketchbook already. Means everything come back to normal. The studying year is almost over and hopefully I will have more time for my own projects now.

And the mask you put on, it's like words in a song, but there's more to be seen


If I'm busy, that doesn't mean I have no time to play!

Don't waste your time or time will waste you


I do my yoga classes three times a week. And that means three times a week I have about 15 minutes to wait until training starts. And usually I'm sketching while I'm waiting. Don't like to waste my time, so, the next time I was waiting for the students in the studio, I made etchings out of my sketches. Luckily I had with me some good quality paper. Above you can spot the difference between test prints made with cheap paper and the high quality ones.


It'll be quiet here for a while because of enormous amount of work I need to do. Something like two dozens of pictures in three days.

And let the sun wrap its arms around me


Sometimes the package is even more interesting than the actual object. Well, in case with Elvira H.Mateu rings it's not true, the rings are fantastic and probably they are the only one I could ever wear! But anyway I can't get rid of her packages, they're too beautiful. Also look at how nature packs its baby-seeds! Never stop bein exited about that! And those wooden leftovers reminds me of Peter Nencini's Hand Werk sets. I wish I could get one of them! Too much exclaims for one post, I know.

Have to share one more thing - Giant easter egg by Camilla Engman.
