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.
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
Meet #2 of Mankind Mag: The Hair Issue made by Erin Loechner. You'll find one of my old works inside.
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!
